Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar has been ousted from Alia Bhatt and Shahrukh Khan's next, Dear Zindagi.
Actor Tahir Raj Bhasin has replaced Zafar and has begun shooting for his portion in the movie.
This development comes in the wake of the Anti-Pakistan sentiment that rose after the barbaric killing of Indian soldiers by Pakistan-sponsored terrorists and the subsequent surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army.
Films like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and the upcoming Raees which feature Pakistani actors have faced protests from across the nation owing to the same.
Bhasin, who debuted with Mardaani will next be seen as the primary antagonist against John Abraham in Force 2.
Dear Zindagi also features Aditya Roy Kapur, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi and will hit theatres across the country on November 25.
