The Hindu extremist parties have given conditional permission to release Kiran Jauhar’s film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in cinemas. The permission has been granted on the condition that he would not cast Pakistani actors in future in his films and give Rs500 million to Indian Army’s funds.
On Saturday Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis held a meeting with MNS chief Raj Thackeray and filmmaker Karan Johar over the release of movie ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
Film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, that features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, ran into trouble after Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) said it won’t allow release of any movie in India that featured Pakistani artistes. It is due for release on October 28, ahead of Diwali.
Film & Television Producers Guild of India president Mukesh Bhatt also attended the meeting, which was held at Fadnavis’s residence.
After the meeting, Mukesh Bhatt said that they had a constructive talk with the Maharashtra chief minister and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ will release as per the schedule.
