In what comes as a complete resolution to the ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ release speculation, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis presided over a meeting with the MNS Chief Raj Thackeray, the Producers Guild of India, Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios and all parties agreed to ensure the safe and smooth release of the Diwali entertainer ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ across single screens and multiplexes.
“We had a constructive meeting with the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra and the good news is that ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ will release across all single screens and multiplexes as per schedule on 28 October 2016,” says Mukesh Bhatt.
“I have confirmed to the Hon’ble Chief Minister that the Producer’s Guild has decided that going forward, we will not work with Pakistani artistes in the future. Karan Johar said that he will put a special slate saluting our soldiers before the start of the movie. It’s a tribute from us to our soldiers,” he further added.
Bhatt also revealed, “In addition, some of the producers volunteered to contribute to the Army Welfare Fund. We owe this to the Army.”
He further says, “The meeting was called by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra and all the parties agreed that all films which are already in production with Pakistani artistes will be allowed to release smoothly. All parties agreed that the nation should celebrate a Happy Diwali and now ‘ Ae Dil Hai Mushkil ‘ will release on October 28 in a mood of Diwali celebration.”
Produced by Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios, the film stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles.
