Even though the fate of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' looks uncertain in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa and Karnataka after Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India(COEAI) threatened to stall its release, there seems to be no change in the film's Bengalplans.
Distributor of the film in Bengal -Shrikant Mohta -is planning a "big release" of the film here. As the president of the Eastern India Motion Pictures Association, Mohta has also criticized any move to target films and music featuring Pakistani artistes.
According to Mohta's plans, more than 150 theatres in Bengal will be screening the Karan Johar film. "We are releasing the film in a big way. Bengal will never support such issues. More than 150 theatres will screen the film which has Fawad Khan," he said.
