The chairperson of the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) says that “No one has a right to stop a film from being shown after it has been given a certification.”
CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani said, “It was wrong to target any kind of cinema for its Pakistani presence.”
According to Pahlaj, the censor certificates were given to both ‘Ek Tera Saath’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. Both are eligible for release. No faction or political party has any right to stop their release.
Nihalani said, “Fawad Khan was not the only Pakistan artist to perform in a film. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan from Pakistan has rendered two songs in Ek Tera Saath.”
“Why isn’t there even a murmur of protest against these songs? Only because it is a small film? Is ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ a soft target because it is made by Karan Johar? Why are only high-profile films being made soft targets?” he asked.
So looks like Fawad Khan’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is all set to hit the screens.
