The MNS had issued an ultimatum to Pakistani artistes to leave India following the terror attack in Uri in September. This also cast a threat over the release of filmmaker Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", which co-stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
However, it was released after Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis mediated a dialogue between Mr Johar and MNS chief Raj Thackeray.
On December 11, Bollywood actor-producer Shah Rukh Khan met Mr Thackeray at the latter's residence. The meeting assumed significance as Mr Khan's upcoming film, "Raees", features Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.
