After giving green light for the release of Fawad Khan starrer Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Monday said it won't oppose the release of two upcoming Bollywood films featuring Pakistani actors.

Mahira Khan's Raees and Ali Zafar's Dear Zindagi will release without any opposition, Indian Express reported.

The decision came after Mukesh Bhatt, President of the Film and Television Producers Guild of India, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, MNS chief Raj Thackeray and CM Devendra Fadnavis met to discuss the issue of the release of Bollywood films featuring Pakistani actors.

The president of Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, Shalini Thackeray said, "They always said that these films were shot before the (Uri) attack happened. So, in today’s meeting, it became clear that apart from the three films which have been completed -- Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Raees and Dear Zindagi -- no other films with Pakistani artistes will be released."

"No films with Pakistani actors will be shot. This was decided by the CM, MNS, and producers guild together," she added.

The meeting also decided that all the Film & Television Producers Guild of India will sign a contract that they won’t be working with Pakistani artists in the future and those who have already worked with Pakistanis will have to donate a huge sum to the Army Relief Fund as atonement.
