From past few weeks, Karan Johar is receiving a lot of threats for his upcoming film, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The film is facing trouble as it stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. After the Uri attacks that killed several Indian soldiers, a ban is imposed on the Pakistani artistes from entering India.
The MNS party had warned Karan to chop off Fawad‘s role. However, that didn’t happen and hence they have threatened to vandalise the theatres if they screen his film. KJo even shared a video condemning the attacks and promised never to work with Pak actors in future. However, the MNS party is still not ready to let the film release peacefully.
Hence, Karan has now decided to take an extreme step and meet Home Minister, Rajnath Singh.

According to reports, Karan, along with Mukesh Bhatt and Siddharth Roy Kapoor will meet Rajnath Singh and discuss the threats he is receiving. Yesterday, several protestors were arrested for protesting against ADHM. The protestors belonging to Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena were raising slogans against him and his film outside Metro cinema in South Mumbai.
In fact, Maharashtra’s CM Devendra Fadnavis has assured protection to theatres that are screening ADHM. He also stated that everyone has the freedom to protest, but any situation that creates a law and order problem will not be allowed and strict action would be taken.
After the Fox Star Studios approached the Mumbai Police for protection, Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Dudhe had said, “Mumbai police will provide adequate protection to cinema theatres.”
ADHM is releasing on October 28.
