Karan Johar‘s romantic saga ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ release is being hampered by a threat issued by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena. The political party that is being lead by Raj Thackeray has issued a veiled threat that they will vandalize the multiplexes screening ADHM. Reacting to the threat the head honcho of Dharma Production had sought help from Mumbai Police and the Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Taking into consideration the assurance given by the Home Minister, CM of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis has promised action against unruly elements. Therefore the security for the theaters has been upped by the police. They are also digging into police records on the MNS chief to restrain him. His bail papers that give a complete account on the bonds signed by the supremo in the Osmanabad court.
Sources said, “Thackeray has been cautious to make just one political statement in this period, while Amey Khopkar who head the MNS film wing has been strategically assigned all the calls for disruption.”
Sources further added that the Mumbai police apparently feel that the threats issued by MNS are just a political stunt. They are also looking into every speech given by the leader and his party men ever since the surgical strikes were undertaken by the government against Pakistan.
They further added, “There are a few observations that we find strategic. While most politicians in the state reacted immediately, there was a time vacuum between the Shiv Sena and MNS in their reaction to the announcement of the surgical strikes. The Sena’s reaction was brief and congratulated the government on the Army’s strikes. When Thackeray reacted, he chose the subject of Pakistani actors in India. Everything that followed has been in keeping this strategy of threats alive.”
Will this move by the Mumbai Police restrain the MNS Tiger remains to be seen. Till then fate of Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is
truly at stake here.
