MUMBAI: Indian production house has denied a media report which claims that Pakistani actor Fawad Khan’s face is being replaced with Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan through technology.
“There is no iota of truth in this news. Nothing of that sort has been thought or discussed. We wonder from where this news is coming?,” Dharma Productions’ official spokesperson told Indian celebrity website PinkVilla.
Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is embroiled in a ton of controversy especially since the ban on Pakistani artists has taken place.
Fawad Khan plays a small but pivotal role in the movie which also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Anushka and Aishwarya both play Pakistani residents Saba and Alizeh.
A recent news article claimed that Karan’s team was thinking of replacing Fawad’s face with actor Saif Ali Khan through technology. They apparently also thought of changing Anushka and Aishwarya’s characters, as not from Pakistan but another country. – SAMAA
