Mumbai, Oct 23, 2016: Shabana Azmi criticises Maharashtra CM. Veteran actress Shabana Azmi has slammed Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for allegedly facilitating the extortion of money from Bollywood producers.
Shabana Azmi criticises Maharashtra CM.
“What a sorry state of affairs! CM brokers deal and buys patriotism for Rs 5 crore! After Home Minister had promised peaceful passage for ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ (ADHM). CM Fadnavis shows scant respect for Home Minister’s assurance of safe passage for ADHM. BJP better haul him up and demand explanation,” she posted as Shabana Azmi criticises Maharashtra CM.
Filmmaker Karan Johar received a major breather when the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Saturday allowed the release of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” but with a condition.
All the producers who employed Pakistani artists, must pay Rs 5 crore each into the Indian Army’s welfare fund as atonement. Distributors and cinema owners have also come forward in support of the film when Shabana Azmi criticises Maharashtra CM.
The MNS decision followed Fadnavis’ direct intervention in the matter after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited Mumbai and met representatives of Bollywood.
Fadnavis had convened a meeting on Saturday which was attended by MNS President Raj Thackeray, Karan and Film and Television Producers Guild of India’s President Mukesh Bhatt, among others at his official residence, Varsha, to resolve the imbroglio as Shabana Azmi criticises Maharashtra CM.
“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” has been in the news for featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
