New Delhi [India], Oct. 22(ANI):Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) MP and actor Manoj Tiwari expressed satisfaction over the release of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' on the scheduled date after the producer assured that he won't work with Pakistani actors.

"I am delighted over the decision, and I have always advocated the fact that the movies which have been made earlier should be released; but in future, films casting Pakistani actors should be banned. As the makers of 'Ae Dil hai Mushkil' assured that they will not make movies with actors from Pakistan," he said.

"We should at least ban people who did not condemn attack on India. Their work should be stopped," he added.

"Filmmakers, who have signed Pakistani actors will have to pay Rs. 5 crore as 'penance' for army welfare," Raj Thackeray said today, suggesting he will not block the release of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', after producers promised not to cast Pakistani actors in the future.

Ae Dil... director Karan Johar, producers' guild president Mukesh Bhatt met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Thackeray, whose Maharashtra Navnirman Sena or MNS is among outfits that had threatened to vandalise cinemas and block the film as it stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. (ANI)
