If the latest buzz is to be believed, Fawad Khan starrer Ae Dil Hai Mushkil might not see the light of day in Pakistan.

Putting an end to all speculations, Indian film trade analyst and critic, Taran Adarsh, took to Twitter to break the news that the Karan Johar film will not release in Pakistan.

He said, Fox Star, the distributor of ADHM, have confirmed to him that the Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer will not be screened in the cross-border cinemas.

Not only ADHM, but Ajay Devgn starrer Shivaay will also not hit the screens, as confirmed by its distributor Reliance Entertainment.

Zoraiz Lashari, chairman of Pakistani exhibitors and Distributors Association, said, “Our basic demand was a lift on the ban on Pakistani actors working in India and the Indian authorities have lifted that ban. Even Fawad Khan’s film is all set to be released in India on time, which is why even we are looking forward to a more positive outcome of this entire scenario.”

vijay ramesh | 5 years ago | Reply Zoraiz Lashari is wrong,Indian Govt had not put a ban on Pak artist working in Indian Films, it was the Indian Motion Pictures Association which announced that ban and it is still on and not withdrawn.Only the ban on the release of the films with Pak artist has been lifted by a political party after State Govt intervention.
