MNS Threatens to Vandalize Multiplexes on Screening of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena today threatened the multiplex operators that it will vandalize the theatres if they release Karan Johar’s film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”.
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 which features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
“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 said.
The party did not favour employing and cherishing the Pakistani actors so its opposition to such films will continue, he said.
The party also pointed out that the Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association has “supported” its stand.
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 today made its stand clear, it said.
