The ongoing Indo-Pak conflicts are surely hurting artists the most on both sides. Extremists elements in India initially disturbed Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil release because of Fawad Khan and Imran Abbas cameos in the movie. And then demanded Farhan Akhtar and Rahul Dholakia to remove Mahira Khan from her debut Bollywood movie Raees opposite Shahrukh Khan.
Indian media reports actually removed Mahira Khan from Raees once but luckily, all turned out to be rumours.
There is hardly any chance of Indo-Pak relations going toward normalization in coming weeks, specifically for artists because Pakistanis are still banned in India and in reaction, Indian movies are not releasing in Pakistan. But, there is a good news for Mahira Khan and Shahrukh Khan fans as the Raees producer Farhan Akhtar has announced the release date of his movie which is, January 25, 2017. MARK THE DATE!
