Well, looks like Karan Johar is in trouble.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director appeared on India Today Unforgettables with Ramesh Sippy where in a candid chat he said: "I thought Amitabh Bachchan who is not a Punjabi also spoke Punjabi fluently in those days where I saw father (Yash Johar) talk in Punjabi with the entire film fraternity."
To which Amitabh Bachchan replied: "No Karan .. I speak Punjabi because my Mother was as Sikh ; that makes me a half Sikh and so I speak Punjabi .. !!!!" [sic.]

And Karan Johar quickly apologised, "Yes Amit uncle! My apologies got that wrong...." [sic.]
Well, it's good that Karan realised and made it right immediately.
