Fox Star Studios stands by Karan Johar for 'Ae Dil...' release

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Filmmaker is a patriotic Indian whose nationalism cannot be questioned, says Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios that is distributing 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.

Singh said in a statement: "is a proud, emotional and patriotic Indian like all of us and his nationalism cannot be questioned. Fox Star Studios, India, whole-heartedly stands by him at this time."

He said his team is slated for the Diwali release of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' on October 28.

The Fox Star Studio CEO met a Mumbai Police representative on Tuesday to urge for protection for theatres which will screen the movie.

"We have been assured that the police will provide protection to all theatres, including single screens and multiplexes, should there be any requirement," he added.

Singh's statement comes after Karan broke his silence on the vandalism threats issued by right-wing Hindu outfits opposing the release of the film, which stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

Singh said: "We unequivocally condemn the terror attacks on India and support the government of India in all its effort to bring safety and peace for Indians."

"The film has been made by an Indian director -- film's actors Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are all Indians; the crew who have worked tirelessly on this film to see their labour of love in theatres with their families are all Indians," Singh said.

Fox Star Studios, which has a nine-film deal with Johar's Dharma Productions, has also produced 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.
