Will request authorities to allow screening of 'ADHM': Sajid

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala says the decision of cinema owners association to not allow screening of films with Pakistani artistes was unfortunate and he would request them to reconsider the move as that will result in losses for Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil".

Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of yesterday announced that it won't release movies starring actors from Pakistan, in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Goa.



This has put an uncertainty on the release of "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" as it features Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan.

The movie, starring Aishwarya Rai, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma is slated to hit theatres on October 28.

"It's unfortunate with Karan, that this film started two years back when the situation was different. We are going to request all the parties, all the concerned authorities, that he is an Indian. An Indian should not suffer from the hands of another Indian," Sajid said at an event.

"We will humbly go and request everyone. He is an Indian citizen, please help him. Our entire team thinks we will be successful."

Varun Dhawan, who was also present at the event, said he agrees with Sajid.

"I totally agree with what Sajid sir said. I stand by him," he said.

The filmmaker said considering what the nation is going through, they all stand in solidarity with the army.

"We all are behind our nation, our army. Several associations have decided that at present we are not going to work with them (Pakistani artistes).

Actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal took to Twitter and said that producers are being punished for no fault of theirs.

"Terrorist have claimed one more life... Of solidarity of Indian film industry!

"Pak artist got their money and travelled club class and safely went back home... And we punish our own producers for no fault of theirs. Think.
