Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which released on Oct 28th could hardly manage to get a safe release and that too after Karan Johar paid INR 5 crores for a safe release and issued a video, stating he will not cast any Pakistani artist in the future. The film was caught up into controversies due to Fawad Khan’s cameo in it and Karan Johar paid a high price for it. Recently a video of all the deleted scenes of ADHM leaked online, which included a scene of Fawad and Anushka. Editing is always a necessary part to be done and most of the time many of the scenes are edited out to cut short the film’s length.
There still are loads of speculations of Fawad Khan’s cameo being cut short in the film. In an interview with FirstPost Karan Johar said, “When people say that I find it so silly. His exact screen time is nine minutes, but even if he was there for 15, the protests would not have been any less. [Laughs] I didn’t cut his role. This is all he was meant to do in the film.”
We do certainly give you the benefit of doubt Karan.
