Karan Johar who directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which faced a backlash due to a cameo of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, plan to promote the film in a strong way.
The film is to open on October 28 and the makers plan to promote the film in the last 15 days.
“We are grateful to our fans for their love and support for the trailer, songs and music. We definitely have plans to promote the film. We will be doing events and going on reality shows,” sources said.
The MNS had raised objection to Pakistani actors working in Hindi film industry and threatened it would not allow the release of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”.
Johar, however, came out in support of his actor and friend Fawad Khan.
The promotions will be fronted by the film’s lead stars Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor.
“We are waiting for Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor to kick-start the promotions. At the moment they are busy with their prior commitments,” sources said. “Anushka is currently shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next with Shah Rukh Khan.”
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will also be part of the promotions.
All four stars, Karan, Ranbir, Anushka and Aishwarya’ will promote the film.
Both Ranbir and Anushka have already started the promotions through video messages and social networking sites. – CINEWS
