ae dil hai mushkil,ae dil hai mushkil news, ae dil hai mushkil mns The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena today said it would intensify its opposition to Karan Johar’s soon-to-be-released film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil as it features Pakistani actors.

The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena today said it would intensify its opposition to Karan Johar’s soon-to-be-released film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” as it features Pakistani actors and issued a veiled threat of vandalism to the multiplexes if they screened it.

The opposition by MNS and some other political parties to films with actors from Pakistan in the aftermath of Uri terror attack has put a question mark on the fate of Johar’s film which features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

“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,” MNS leader Amey Khopkar said.

The party did not favour employing and cherishing the Pakistani actors so its opposition to such films will continue, he said. “We will also oppose Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’ though it is slated to release in January,” Khopkar said in a statement.

The party also pointed out that the Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association has “supported” its stand. The single-screen theatre operators have announced that they would not screen Johar’s upcoming film, but there was no similar assurance from the multiplex operators so MNS today made its stand clear, it said.

MNS, which once had 13 MLAs in Maharashtra Assembly but was reduced to a single member in the House in 2014, has taken an aggressive stand on the issue, apparently to make its presence felt ahead of next year’s municipal polls in Mumbai.

    India is now a great nation beyond the parochial confines of some of its leaders. The government is responding just fine at terrorism, with surgical strikes and diplomatic strategies. What is sad is for the movie industries and film luminaries to remain cowardly quiet and quiescent as bigots and demagogues hold etiquette and good manners to ransom. I see some powerful movie stars who have a worldwide following allow themselves to be used by the MSN and similar outfits. This is crazy!!

    Kekudalt;br/gt;It is shameful that the great Indian nation is allowing itself to be tarred and feathered by bigotry and unwashed xenophobia. Shame on all who support the MNS and its rabid kook of a leader, Raj Thackeray.
