The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has held a protest against filmmaker Karan Johar outside his office. After rounding up the activists and taking them to the police station, the Mumbai police have provided security outside the producer-director’s office in Andheri West.

Karan Johar who has cast Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, had spoken against the MNS, who had told Pakistani artistes to leave the country. Johar said that banning Pakistani artistes was not the solution to terrorism.


According to MNS leader Shalini Thackeray who led the agitation, Johar’s statement was unfortunate. “These Pakistani artistes gain fame and money in India and till date have not spoken against Pakistan for encouraging terrorism. If Johar feels so much, let him migrate to Pakistan and make films there,” said Thackeray. Senior MNS activists had submitted a memorandum to Johar’s office.

In the letter, it warned Johar that just as he had creative liberty to make films with Pakistani artistes, MNS would also ensure it is not screened in the theatres.

Joint commissioner of police, law and order, Deven Bharti, confirmed that adequate security has been provided outside the office of Dharma productions. “All foreign nationals, who are in Mumbai on valid documents provided by the government of India, need not worry. We will provide adequate protection as and when required.”


  1. Bollyarena i request tell mns protest pak & chinies also not indians.mns going complete wrong.hi truely protest chanies more then pakistanis because chines over the indian border.i tell hi really good then chines protest first then terror & pak

  2. shivaay mai bhi ek pakistani actor debut kar raha hai aur ms dhoni mai fawad khan virat kohli ka role kar raha.

    Toh yeh protest sirf KJo aur SRK ke liye kyu.

  3. What MNS are doing is not the right way to protest……On one side we say that India is a free country and here every one has right to speak freely, but when someone say something or put any statement, these politicians come and start protesting against him……If you don’t like what KJo is said, then you can show your anger through media…….Protesting like this outside his office is not the right thing……..

    What happens in J&K’s Uri was very disheartening and every Indian is angry after that incidence, and if Indian thinks that we should boycott Pakistani artist then do it, I totally support it, but we should do not boycott ADHM and Raees, because with this ultimately it’s Indian Producer who will suffer more because Fawad and Mahira already get paid for their work……

    I am Salman Fan and I know few other Salman fans will not agree with me because of the behavior of Srk fans, who every-time abuse Salman……..But to every Salman fans if we also act like these stupid Srk fans then what’s the difference between them and us…….I never support Srk but this is something else, I cannot behave like Idiot Srk fans……because ultimately it will effect our Indian Film Industry……

    Plus I don’t want to give them (Srk fans) any excuse after the failure of Raees……We all know how these excusewale behave after every failure of Srk movies like:
    1) SOS was clashed otherwise JTHJ will be Blockbuster; or
    2) Indian audience don’t know what is good movie, Ra-One was an answer to Hollywood Iron-man and Avatar…..LOL; or
    3) Fraha Khan is a crap director, she is the reason for crap HNY; or
    4) Rohit S is a crap director, he is the reason for crap Dilwale; or
    5) Dilwale faced protest otherwise it will collect 300cr or 400cr in domestic; or
    6) Indian audience don’t deserve good cinema otherwise FAN is an Oscar winning movie and Oscar winning performance by Srk (That’s another thing that even in overseas it was Flop badly); or
    7) Raees Postpond because of Srk friendship with YRF…….LOL

    LOL Srk fans and their excuses……
