In middle of all the controversy surrounding Pakistani actors being banned from Indian films, here’s a reason for Karan Johar to be a bit relieved. The Censor Board has cleared Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with a U/A certificate, and the film is all set to hit theatres on 28 October. But given the Film Owners Association’s decision to not give the film a release in single screens across four states, the CBFC clearance is ironic to say the least. Trade expert Taran Adarsh confirmed the lucky piece of news in a tweet.

There were rumours about Pahlaj Nihalani having ordered three cuts in the film, chopping off some intimate scenes between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai, but the U/A certification has put them all to rest.

Cheer up Karan Johar. At least you don’t have to fight the CBFC on this one too.
