There’s been a lot, and I mean a lot, of talk about banning Pakistani artists from working in India. Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ finds itself smack-dab in the middle of the “Pakistani actors India chhodo” brouhaha.
Now normally, most controversies turn into free publicity for upcoming movies. The downside of ADHM being caught in the eye of this storm is that Raj Thackeray’s MNS is threatening earth-shattering consequences if KJo doesn’t delete all of Fawad Khan’s scenes from the movie.
After receiving an ungodly amount of flak for standing by the actors in his film (nationality notwithstanding), Karan Johar finally released this video yesterday:
The folks at MNS don’t care! Here’s what they have to say about it:
Amey Khopkar, President of Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, the film wing Raj Thackeray’s MNS said,
We will oppose the screening of the movie everywhere in the state. If any multiplex operator dares to screen the film, they (operators) should remember that multiplexes are decorated with expensive glass sheets.
Mumbai Police commissioner, Dattatray Padsalgikar, however, maintains that the film will release on October 28 as scheduled.
Looks like the Diwali weekend is going to be very, very eventful!
