After his heartfelt video message on patriotism and eschewal of Pakistani artistes on Tuesday, Karan Johar has opted out of his commitment to be on Kapil Sharma’s show.
“Ever since Kapil and Karan hosted an awards show together in 2015, they’ve gotten along really well. Kapil was keen to have Karan on the show and the latter had committed months ago that he would be on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Who was to know of the recent developments?” says a source.
However, to make up for his absence, Karan had requested Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to be on the show along with her co-stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.
After a lengthy circle of controversies and mere days before release, director Karan Johar’s new film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been confronted with yet another hurdle. On Sunday, copies of the CBFC’s certificate clearing the film with a UA rating and a list of scenes cut was leaked.The certificate, signed by CBFC chairman Pahlaj Nihalani, reveals the final rating for Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and (controversially) Fawad Khan’s film as UA (parental guidance for children below 13).
