Singer Abhijeet calls Karan Johar ‘Mrs’ for casting Fawad Khan
Bollywood playback singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya now-a-days makes news not for his songs, but for his controversial rants on social media. Amidst the ongoing row over Pakistani artistes working in India, Abhijeet had few days back attacked Filmmakers Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt, and Shah Rukh Khan calling them “anti-nationals” and “bigger enemies then #TerrorStatePak.”
Now, in a fresh tweet, Abhijeet has called the ‘Student of the Year’ director ‘Mrs Karan Johar linking him to Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who is a part of the latter’s upcoming film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
The popular singer wrote, “Another #lovejihad .. Mehbooba #KaranJohar is in depression ..pak lover fawad ditched bechari Mrs @karanjohar khan.” Abhijeet tweeted the comment along with a link to a news report about KJo confirming that Fawad won’t be the first guest on his talk show ‘Koffee with Karan season 5’.
Karan has been facing a lot of heat for casting Fawad Khan in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ set to release on October 28, with a section of politicians demanding him to chop off the ‘Khoobsurat’ actor’s role completely from the film, or else, the film’s release will be stopped.
Abhijeet also took a dig at Salman Khan saying that the superstar was ashamed of showing his loyalty to India, and that Fawad Khan was a true patriot. The singer tweeted, “#FawadKhan shows true patriotism towards his country Pakistan whilst Bollywood, @BeingSalmanKhan is ashamed to show loyalty to India.. #mns.”
The comments came after Salman, at an event last Friday, September 30, said that Pakistani actors are were not terrorists and that art and terrorism should not be mixed. His statement had also invited the backlash of Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande, who said that Salman too should migrate to Pakistan if he has so much love for the Pakistani actors.
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray, who is known to be a good friend of the actor, also threatened to ban Salman’s films if the actor continues to support Pakistani artistes.
