Amidst heightened tensions between India and Pakistan, another project involving Fawad Khan seems to be in doldrums. It had earlier been reported that Fawad had been signed up for Salman Khan’s next production, a movie set to be directed by Filmistaan director, Nitin Kakkar.

However, Nitin has denied that Fawad had been signed up for the film at all. He says, “Many press people called me for confirmation of Fawad having been signed for the film. I’m not in the mood or state to say anything at this crucial time.”

Nitin did admit that talks were on with the Pakistani actor and that the movie is on hold. “Fawad never signed my film, but we’re definitely in talks with him. I won’t say that the film is on the backburner, but rather it’s on hold, and we’ll get a clearer picture by December.

When quizzed on whether Fawad will still remain a part of the film after the recent controversy, the director quickly said, “That the producers Salman Khan and BR Films only can tell.”

Fawad’s been in the eye of the storm in the wake of the Uri terror attacks last month. While the Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India decided to not release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which stars the actor, the dark clouds over Karan Johar’s movie seem to be dissipating. The movie seems to be on track to release on October 28, after a meeting with MNS leader Raj Thackeray and Maharashtra’s Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, albeit with certain conditions applied.
