MNS called off its protest and allowed release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’

A major relief to filmmaker Karan Johar, finally Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has called off its protest on Saturday against the upcoming film, “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” and allowed its release on 28th October, 2016.

The decision followed Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ direct intervention in the matter — a day after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited Mumbai, and two days after he met representatives of Bollywood.

Fadnavis convened a meeting on Saturday which was attended by MNS President Raj Thackeray, Karan Johar and Producers’ Guild of India President Mukesh Bhatt and others at the CM’s official residence, Varsha, to resolve the imbroglio.

Previously, the MNS was agitating for the past fortnight against the film on grounds it has a Pakistani actor, Fawad Khan, and vowed not to permit its scheduled release on October 28. However,  now its release is based on certain conditions imposed by Raj Thakrey that producers will have to give in writing that they won’t caste any Paki actor in their upcoming films and even in case they do; they will have to pay Rs. 5 crore to army relief fund.

Besides all other controversies, Nitin Datar president of Cinema Owner & Exhibitors’ Association to ANI has denied to cooperate with the release of the film.
