Mumbai: Controversial actor Kamaal R Khan today stated that the decision taken by Cinema Owners and Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) to suspend the release of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” in single screen theatres in western India is the result of a “conspiracy”.
He has been previously targeted by Ajay Devgn for promoting the Karan Johar directorial at the time when Ajay alleged that Karan paid Kamaal Rs 25 lakh to tweet positively about “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” and to give negative reviews to “Shivaay”
Condemning the decision made by COEAI, Kamaal tweeted: “These cinema owners are cowards who are trying to harass film makers. It’s a big conspiracy by some BJP darlings.” He added: “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.
“Ban on films of Pakistani artists is only to stop release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ so that ‘Shivaay’ can get solo release and I think it’s bad way to get solo release. “If you trust your work and your film, then you don’t need to stop release of someone’s film to get solo release. Instead you should compete at box office.”
