New Delhi [India], Oct. 5 (ANI): Karan Johar's public admittance of his preference for Fawad Khan over Ranbir Kapoor may not be music to the ears of many, but the director reveals why.

In a chat session with model and actress Neha Dhupia, the 44-year-old producer was asked who was his favorite of the two actors in his latest 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,' to which the filmmaker replied, "I am going to go with Fawad."

".He's the new novelty and Ranbir knows I am going to go with Fawad," the 'Koffee with Karan' host justified.

Unfortunately, the handsome Khan is not around to bask in this limelight as he had headed back to Pakistan after the IMPPA, following the killing of 19 Indian soldiers in Uri, imposed a temporary ban on all Pakistani actors working in Indian cinema.

Karan is gearing up for his 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' which also stars Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai.

The romantic drama is slated for October 28 release. (ANI)
