‘Raees’ producer, Ritesh Sidhwani cleared the air about the rumours regarding the rescheduling of the film release. Sidhwani set the records straight by saying, “We are sticking to the release date we announced earlier for ‘Raees’. I don’t think something like a ban has happened. The association itself has written to the government that the people who have already made their films, who have completed their shooting, we should respect that. Let those movies release and whatever the government decides in the future, they will take a call on that.” He further spoke about the ban on Pakistani artists, “I don’t want to comment on that. It is very sensitive. Right now everything is very heated, I don’t think it is the right moment to talk about it.”
Meanwhile, MNS has rejected IMPPA’s appeal to release ‘Raees’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ peacefully and is in no mood to relent.
