Pakistani actor Fawad Khan has reportedly left India, and stalled plans to get back anytime soon, after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) threatened to beat up Pakistani actors if they didn’t leave India by Sunday (September 25).

The threat comes in the wake of the recent terror attack in Uri, J&K, in which 18 Indian troops were killed. Although Mumbai Police promised protection to Pakistani artists in the city, looks like they don’t want to take any chances.

Our source reveals that Fawad, who was in India until recently, flew out to Pakistan. MNS has particularly targeted Fawad’s upcoming film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, claiming that they wouldn’t allow the release of the film, slated for Diwali.

While the film’s producer Karan Johar had already announced earlier that Fawad won’t be promoting the film, the actor’s absence may still raise questions.

“Fawad was not required here as he has finished all his work on the film. He went beack to Pakistan as his wife is due to deliver their second child in September,” said a source from Johar’s production house, not wishing to be named. Sources however reveal that Fawad is now planning to extend his stay in Pakistan until the situation is under control.

Ae Dil Hain Mushkil features Ranbir, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Anushka Sharma in lead and Fawad in a pivotal role.
