A twist in trail!!
Speculations are at rife that Karan Johar might replace Fawad Khan in his upcoming mega-starrer film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Saif Ali Khan.
He might change his lead female character’s (Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s characters) country of origin (Pakistan), due to the stir of anti-Pak surf.
According to a source,
Karan’s film releases on Diwali, but because of the anti-Pakistani wave that is sweeping through India right now, he is facing a dual dilemma — it is too late to replace Fawad, but his female leads play Pakistani women. So what he is planning to do is tweak the script a bit and work it in such a way that they are no longer Pakistani citizens, but belong to another country.
Initially, Karan had wanted Saif Ali Khan to play Fawad’s role but KJo changed his mind and replaced him with Fawad instead. Later, Saif was approached to play the role of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ex husband in the film but that turned down and finally Shah Rukh Khan did that role.
