Bollywood has united in its endeavour to help Karan Johar in getting a smooth release for his film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which has run into inclement weather after the Cine Owners Association requested its members to suspend the screening of the film fearing violence.

To facilitate a free and smooth release of the film, producers Mukesh Bhatt, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Anupama Chopra, Vijay Singh of Fox and a few officials of Dharma Productions met top police officials seeking protection to ensure a fair release in all theatres in view of MNS’ threat to stall the release.

Speaking to Indian Express.com after meeting police officials, Mukesh said, “What we are asking is our legitimate right to conduct business which is the fundamental right of an Indian. The movie is a universal family entertainer. There is no point for a fellow Indian to fight a fellow Indian. Why is an Indian fighting an Indian and making a Pakistani feel victorious? We should be together. You have a different way of expressing your sorrows of what happened in Uri and I am also very upset. But by being upset I don’t have to kill my fellow Indian for no fault of his.”

The producer emphasised on the need to have a peaceful Diwali and not destroy it by harming Indians and an Indian film. “What is important is Diwali is a festival for the entire family and it’s a romantic family entertainer that is coming and keeping the spirit of the festive season in mind, why should we spoil Diwali of our own people. Let them go and enjoy Diwali by seeing a good movie which can facilitate happiness.”

Thanking the Mumbai police for offering cooperation to producers, Mukesh said,”They have assured us without mincing that they will give us complete support. I am very confident once the police signal comes, the single screen owner will release the film in their theatres.”

To the MNS that has been threatening to stall the release of ADHM, Mukesh said,”I have appealed with folded hands to my brothers in MNS. I know they are upset and so am I but let’s do it peacefully. Let us not spoil Diwali of the people of our country. We are harming a fellow Indian. Pakistani ka kya gaya isme? Kuch nahi gaya. Woh toh mazze le raha hai. Hass raha hai. So let Pakistanis not feel victorious. We brothers should come together and it’s the festival of us Hindus. Why to destroy our festivals? This is my appeal to all my MNS brothers. Let’s be together and make Diwali good for all Indians.”

    Since when MNS has become brother to Mahesh Bhatt. Ridicules. MB can never become brother to anyone. He is an animal with human body.Diwali will be enjo with double vigour n pomp if ADHM is not released and thrown in arabian sea. Karan the moron is now slowly coming to senses. If he is serious, he can easily replace with another indian face or cut his portion and release. He is not a man, thats the problem

      Mr Bhatt, Diwali will be specially joyful if we are saved from the trash Mr Johar and his ilk dish out. You are being very presumptuous if you think a mere film is going to spoil Diwali for us. We have a far more fulfilling life, and I suggest you get one too.

              This family of Bhatt has leanings to Pak. Now all these award wapasi gang wants to ensure that they do not lose money . Tell me how many of these so called liberal producers have donated to our martyred soldiers family? Has Karan declared that he will donate a portion of the profit for the family of Uri martyrs? No they will never do that . now they are appealing to the sensibilities of MNS . # Morons and nautankis

                These bhatts are school drop outs, and these muslim urchins are going to teach us how to celebrate Diwali. All they do is plagiarise Hollywood films and exploit female actors , its disgusting. They are alia's age, your religion doesn't treat women well,in the name of your daughters spare these helpless actors.

                    Sh i tt ing their pants, aren't they. :Dlt;br/gt;They will even grovel to let the film run smoothly. If they had iota of self-respect and commitment to their 'secular ideals', they wouldn't have resorted to such measures, should have lost money instead. But no, money is most important to them.

                        i shall NOT watch this movie. A death in a soldiers house, is equivalent to a death in my house. Our Soldiers are selfless people who have taken it as their birth right to defend our borders, by which I and my family can sleep safely. People like the Bhatts and Bollywood stars worship ONLY money and would sell their nation if they saw a profit to be made in it. Am against MNS as well as I see them as OPPORTUNISTIC thugs.

                              Go to stan Mr Mahesh Bhatt and celebrate Diwali. There are few families of our Jawans who are not celebrating Diwali. Your Diwali should definitely be spoiled....

                                How insensitive one can get get? What about the Diwali of those families who have been killed in cross border attacks? And of those who will continue to die in days to come? Will these people ever learn? Are they incapable of looking beyond their nose?

                                        Mukesh bhatt should not talk to MNS terrorists. He should hire some 20 camerapesons and gather evidence on MNS's goondaism, then file cases and make those hooligans run pillar to post.

                                          Mukeshbhai, watching a movie is not part of Diwali traditions. Hence, Indians' Diwali will not be spoilt if ADHM is not released in single screen theatres. Though I am not sure about Diwali being spoilt for KJo and his ilk.

                                            Mahesh bhatt is already a converted muslim. What is his muxlim name?lt;br/gt;They don't have any 'Deen Emaan'.
