The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is back to its old tricks again. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is singing in India, Bajrangi Bhaijaan will release here and Shah Rukh Khan is doing a film with Mahira. Pakistani heavy-weight Humayun Saeed will be co-star opposite Khan’s character, and the third person in the movie’s love triangle features newcomer actress Armeena Rana Khan. It is slated to be released in India under the banner of B4U films.
As per the copy of the letter, MNS has stated as the relations with Pakistan have never been normal and as the country keeps conspiring against India, so Bin Roye is a Pakistani production shouldn’t be released in India.
Khopkar contended that Pakistan allegedly sponsors terror in the country, particularly Maharashtra, and it does not permit Indian artists to work in that country, and warned against releasing the movie.
Catch this movie in a theater near you when it releases internationally on July 17-Eid Mubarak! “The repercussions of such acts can be detrimental for both film industries”. It’d mean an increase in the number of screens for Bin Roye and Wrong No. Bin Roye was already releasing on more than 400 screens worldwide on Eidul Fitr, including Indian cinemas, barring Maharashtra.
Duraid Qureshi, CEO of Hum Network and husband of the film’s producer Momina Qureshi, was taken aback by the news. The film wing of the MNS had threatened to vandalize the theatres if B4U decided to screen the movie in the state.
