The India –Pakistan situation went from being sensitive to pretty ugly in no time. In the entertainment world, the MNS created a stir when it asked Bollywood to ban Pakistani actors and the immediate brunt was faced by Karan Johar when speculations were rife about Fawad Khan’s scenes being deleted in the controversial ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.

Later, Shah Rukh Khan was questioned as well, because his upcoming ‘Raees’ marks the debut for Mahira Khan, a famous name back in Pakistan. Ritesh Sidhwani, the producer stood by his actress and claimed that since no ‘official’ ban was in place, they weren’t against getting her in the country. Shah Rukh was also present at the event. This media interaction fuelled rumours that Raj Thackeray’s relations with Khan might turn sour.
However, the latest news floating around is that Shah Rukh met with the MNS chief and assured him that he won’t be working with any Pakistani actors in the future and also that his team had no plans of getting Mahira to India for the film’s promotion.
