MNS leader on Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: 'If Karan Johar decides to release the film, I'll beat him up'
It seems like Karan Kohar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is jinxed.
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and the Cine Owners Association has demanded that no films with Pakistani actors should be released in theatres.
MNS Leader Amey Khopkar allegedly said with a lot of emphasis, "If Karan Johar decides to release the film, I'll beat him up."
He also said, "All single screen theaters have decided that they won't release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. We wont allow any Pakistani artists to release their films in theater."
Khopkar further added the multiplex owners agreed with the ban on Pakistani films and they will issue a letter about this tomorrow on 15 October.
On being asked to comment on the monetary loses Indian producers will face because of this ban, he added, "At a time like this, we cannot worry about profits and loss"
The Times of India had previously quoted Nitin Datar, COEAI's president, as saying about the film, "The members will be meeting and we'll decide on the matter. But one thing is for certain — the decision will be taken keeping the wishes and the sentiment of the public. We won't go against them."
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
