Team of ‘Total Dhamaal’ has decided to not release the film in Pakistan says Ajay Devgn

Actor-producer Ajay Devgn in wake of recent Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir has decided not to release his upcoming film in Pakistan

Ajay tweeted “In light of the current situation, the team of ‘Total Dhamaal’ has decided to not release the film in Pakistan,”


The Pulwama attack claimed the lives of 49 CRPF troopers last week and since the industry has been taking their own measures to retaliate against the initiator. The Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) in India on Sunday said filmmakers will not be allowed to release their films in Pakistan nor will they let Pakistani artist work in the industry.

Total Dhamaal co-actor Riteish Deshmukh also tweeted, “In light of the current situation the team of ‘Total Dhamaal’ has decided to not release the film in Pakistan.”
This has been one of the worst ever terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir since militancy erupted in 1989. A Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) suicide bomber on February 14 rammed his vehicle packed with explosives into a CRPF bus on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in Pulwama district.

‘Total Dhamaal’ is the third installment of the successful franchise that originally starred Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey and Riteish Deshmukh alongside Sanjay Dutt. The multi starrer will also see talented cast like Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anil Kapoor and Boman Irani.

Co-produced by Fox Star Studios, Ajay Devgn Ffilms, Ashok Thakeria, Kumar, Sri Adhikari Brothers, Anand Pandit, Sangeeta Ahir and Kumar Mangat Pathak, the film is slated to release on February 22.
