‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, that features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, ran into trouble after Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) said it won’t allow release of any movie in India that featured Pakistani artistes.
MNS ended their protest against Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Raees on Saturday morning after a closed-door meeting between party supremo Raj Thackeray, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, Karan Johar, Mukesh Bhatt and others.
“Every producer who has cast a Pakistani actor must contribute Rs 5 crore to the Army welfare fund,” MNS chief Raj Thackeray said after the meeting.
But Karan is ultimately the winner. Our secret reporter conducted a survey to find out how were the 5 Cr Rs used by the families of the army men. It is found that most of them have done advance booking of ADHM shows in their respective cities. This way the money spent by Karan will come back to Karan.
This is a smart way to buy nationalism. Raj Thackery even got free tickets for the movie as a reward for suggesting such a formula to Karan. Well, if the movie was worth spending that much of money on or not is still subject to reviews at the end of the day.
Mumbai : MNS had banned the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in the aftermath of Uri attack as it starred Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
Yesterday, Thackeray said the ban has been lifted as Producers Guild has agreed not to work with Pakistani actors and filmmakers who have cast Pakistani actors have agreed to donate Rs 5 crore to army welfare fund.
But Abhishek Bachchan is not happy with the proceedings as there are many hot scenes between Aish and Ranbir in ADHM. Abhishek wants to ban the movie anyhow and wants Raj Thackeray’s help for the same.
According to our reporter Mr. Sidharth Singh, Abhishek has offered Rs. 10 Crs to Raj Thackeray to again start the protests against ADHM’s release. This offer seems lucrative as in the previous offer from the producers, MNS wont have got any share of the money.
But the surprising fact is that, Abhishek has 10 Crs with him, as he has not done any major solo roles in the last 5 years. There are rumors that Senior Bachchan has given that money to Junior AB to somehow stop the screening of the movie.
It is to be seen as to what stand does Mr. Raj Thackeray and his party take regarding the issue. But seems like Karan Johar’s movie is getting all the attention.
