The film releases on October 28.

Karan Johar may have broken his silence over Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s ugly controversy and declared his intention of not working with Pakistani actors but it has refused to assuage MNS. The party leaders are firm on their stance for the moment and will continue to oppose the film’s release as it stars Fawad Khan.

When asked if there is any change in MNS’s stance considering that Karan has now declared his intention of not collaborating with Pakistani talent, Amey Khopkar, President of Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, the film wing of the Raj Thackeray-led MNS told Indian Express.com, “Has he realised it only now? He didn’t understand it for such a long time?”

Karan Johar’s Video

Amey also pointed out Karan’s hesistance in mentioning ‘Pakistani actors’ in his statement. “He has not mentioned Pakistani actors. He has said he won’t work with the neighbouring country’s talent. Talent?”

Shalini Thackeray, general secretary of Chitrapat Karmachari Sena too questioned Karan Johar’s sudden change of heart towards Pakistani actors. “This is the same Karan Johar who once said Pakistani actors should not be banned. Why this sudden change in heart? It’s come a little too late in the day for him.”

For the moment, MNS has no plans of withdrawing their agitation against the film. “We are firm on our stand and we will not allow him to release the film,” said Khopkar.

Earlier in the day, Karan through a video message broke his silence and declared that he will not to work with Pakistani talent in future. The director condemned terrorism and also implored fellow Indians to not undermine the work of scores of other Indians who toiled hard to help complete the film. Karan expressed fervent hope that they will not have to face any sort of turbulence and reiterated his patriotism for the country by saying he loves India above everything else.

          It is neither a fight nor the problem of peace ,only a simple Q of loyality towards your motherland, perhaps sajid is lacking in this so raising such points.

              Well done MNS, all nationalistic forces are with you to teach these anti nationals elements a bitter lesson in fact they are hungry after money not for countrys sake but to become more rich to support actors and artists.

                            MNS should set Bollywood on fire as it is strengthening Pak's economy and spoiling our youth.

                                            This indeed is a banana Republic. 'Professional patriotism' is a dangerous trait. MNS who could not win a single seat in the elections decide what india should watch and not watch. All those who support such st*pidity on the basis of emotions don't understand where this free country is heading towards.
