Even as Karan Johar prepares for the nationwide release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil after Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis brokered peace between the filmmaker and MNS on Saturday, trouble continues to brew for the film.

The Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) on Monday said they will continue their call for a boycott of the film by their members.

Watch what else is making news:

The association’s president, Nitin Datar, said that the boycott followed a silence on part of the Pakistani actors towards the terror attacks.

“They haven’t condemned Uri attack, and Pakistan has banned the release of Indian films. So why should we promote Pakistani artists?” he said.
