Karan Johar’s upcoming film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ has landed into trouble since a ban was imposed on Pakistani actors from working in India. But now, Karan Johar can relax and take a seat back as MNS Chief Raj Thackeray has finally assured that they will not oppose the release of the film. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray and filmmakers Karan Johar and Mukesh Bhatt met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today morning where they came up with the final verdict.
After the meeting, Raj Thackeray addressed a press conference to discuss the happenings of the meeting. Addressing the media, Raj Thackeray said, “Every producer will give Rs 5 crore to Army relief fund.” The MNS Chief called the meeting’s resolution “a victory for our agitation”.
Raj Thackeray also said that producers have to give in writing that they will not sign any Pakistani actor hereafter. In fact, Raj Thackeray even added saying that he is sure people won’t watch the film.
Producer and director Mukesh Bhatt who was also present at the meeting said that he will run a slate before the movie starts to honor the martyrs. “Karan Johar and other producers have offered to contribute to the army welfare fund to the defence ministry as a small humble contribution to the best of the capability, irrespective of the picture runs or doesn’t run,” he said.
Well, after much of debate and controversy, Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil will hit the theatres on October 28 in a clash with Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay.
