Ban on ADHM a conspiracy to ensure ‘Shivaay’ solo release: KRK


KRK, who has been posting positive reviews about the film, calls the ban a conspiracy to promote ‘Shivaay’.

Mumbai: After the decision of Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) to ban ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in single screen theatres came to light, the alleged ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ die-hard fan was quick to response. The sharp-tongued controversial actor Kamaal Rashid Khan reached a conclusion that the ban is nothing but a conspiracy so that Ajay devgn’s ‘Shivaay’ can have a solo release.

In a series of tweets, KRK, the self-proclaimed ‘No. 1 critic’ said: These cinema owners are cowards who are trying to harass film makers. It’s a big conspiracy by some BJP darlings.”


“All officials of Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) should be kicked on their a** if they will ever lift this ban again.”

Ajan Devgn, who has directed, co-produced and acted in ‘Shivaay’, has earlier  accused the ‘Ek Villian’ actor of saying nasty things about his film under the influence of Karan Johar.

Devgn claimed that Johar had paid KRK 25 lakhs to promote his movie ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and bad-mouth ‘Shivaay’. Both the films are releasing on the same date, October 28.

The actor tweeted that the ban was a conspiracy to promote Ajay Dengn’s ‘Shivaay’ and that it was Ajay Devgn who had tried to pay him but he declined.


In a recent tweet, the controversial actor even asked Ajay to show his film so that he could rate it.


‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ has been in multiple controversies starting from Aishwarya’s steamy scenes with Ranbir, which the censor board has omitted, and now the furore involving Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who plays a pivotal role in the film.

The COEAI has, however, clarified that they are not banning Áe Dil Hai Mushkil’ but suspending movies with Pakistani actors in them. The prganisation is constituted by a body of 400 members and is not authorised to impose their decision on any of the exhibitors or cinema owners.

Here are some of the tweets KRK has posted singing praises for the ýet-to-be-released’ ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil':
