With a certain right wing political party hell bent on not allowing Pakistani artistes in Mumbai, two major producers are currently caught in dilemma. The political party in question has specifically mentioned actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan. The two are part of Karan Johar’s and Farhan Akhtar’s project respectively.
It seems that Karan Johar is in no mood to take a risk and won’t be inviting Fawad to Mumbai. This means that Fawad will be missing out on the promotions in Mumbai.
A source says, “He won’t take the risk of bringing Fawad to Mumbai for any shooting or promotional activities. Karan has already been in trouble with the same political outfit earlier for referring to ‘Mumbai’ as ‘Bombay’. He can’t take the risk again.”
A second action plan has already been decided by Farhan Akhtar for Mahira Khan. According to a source, “Chances are the producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani may shoot Mahira’s portions in Dubai or some other location away from Mumbai where most of Raees has been shot.”
