The decision followed Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ direct intervention in the matter — a day after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited Mumbai, and two days after he met representatives of Bollywood.”

Fadnavis convened a meeting on Saturday which was attended by MNS President Raj Thackeray, Karan Johar and Producers’ Guild of India President Mukesh Bhatt and others at the CM’s official residence, Varsha, to resolve the imbroglio.

The MNS was agitating for the past fortnight against the film on grounds it has a Pakistani actor, Fawad Khan, and vowed not to permit its scheduled release on October 28.

  1. This is stupid anyways. I am surprised how many people in India actually agree with the ban on Pakistani actors. It’s like saying ban Afghans and Iraqis from America, now that America has been fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    This is stupid logic…
