The banning of Pakistani artistes from working in India has turned out to be a heated debate in Bollywood industry. A while ago, the issue had become serious by all means and political parties threatened Karan Johar‘s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan will not see smooth release in the country. While the film is nearing the release i.e on October 28, Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) decided to ban the screening of the film. The Cinema Owners decided that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will not be released in 4 regions- in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, and Goa.
While there is a lot of confusion and debate over the ban, controversial king, Kamaal R Khan aka KRK has come up with his view on the same. KRK was recently caught by Ajay Devgn’s manager over promoting Karan Johar’s ADHM for Rs 25 lakh. Now, KRK says that the ban of ADHM in single screen theatres is the result of a ‘conspiracy’.
Condemning the decision made by COEAI, Kamaal R Khan tweeted: “These cinema owners are cowards who are trying to harass film makers. It’s a big conspiracy by some BJP darlings.”

He added: “All officials of Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) should be kicked on their a** if they will ever lift this ban again.
Ban on films of Pakistani artists is only to stop release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ so that ‘Shivaay’ can get solo release and I think it’s bad way to get solo release.
If you trust your work and your film, then you don’t need to stop release of someone’s film to get solo release. Instead you should compete at box office”, KRK concluded.
