All the controversies surrounding Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was sorted in a recent meet of Raj Thackeray, Karan Johar, Mukesh Bhatt with Maharashtra's Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
After everything was resolved, Naseeruddin Shah gave a statement about the whole issue. The 'Wednesday' actor was quizzed at a book launch event. In his reply he emphasized on vulnerability of an actor when such issues turns up.
The veteran actor was quoted saying," Mujhe lagta hai industry bahut aasan target hai. Logo ko attack karne mein itna hi mazaa aata hai jitna filmein dekhne mein aati hai. Humne Pakistan se diplomatic relations nahi tode hai. Na hamari Pakistan se jung ho rahi hai. Sirf artistes ko target kiya jaa raha hai - jo ki basically aman aur mohabbat ka paigam leke aa rahe hai. Woh isiliye ke bahut aasan nishaana hai artistes. Mere khyaal se jo shoorveer unko maarne ki aur theatre jalaane ki dhamkiya de rahe hai, unko sarhad pe jaake dushmano ke camps jalaana chahiye. Iss film ko censor ne certificate diya hai, toh kyun nahi release honi chahiye? Ispe rukaavat kyun aana chahiye? Aur main, Karan ka koi fan nahi hoon par yeh film main zaroor dekhoonga, kyun ki mujhe lagta hai ki aise kisi bhi creative insaan ko support karna chahiye jo apna kaam dikhaana chahta hai. Haala ke, government ne bhi pura aashvaasan diya hai ke woh iss film ko release karne degi. Toh yeh Karan Johar ne jo gid gida ke maafi maangi hai, mere khyaal mein iski koi zarurat nahi thi." (sic)
