The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena had Monday said it would intensify its opposition to Karan Johar’s film as it features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. They 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.
“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 had said yesterday.
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 had said.
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 made its stand clear, the party had said.
