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 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.
