Srijay, they in D refers to the actors and changes referents in the sentence. It's the corporation that don't want to plug the competition not the actors. right?

The corporation didn't want to plug the competition, not the actors. The corporation is single in American Standard English

forbid .. to is right idiom

so A and C left out.

C is awkward construction. "they" is not having proper antecendent.

A is best choice.

one more vote for (A),
however, without "they" ( or say if we modify they to it) D would be best choice.

Correct me if I am wrong..

cheers

A is best. Only thing that "did not want to plug the competition" is the "Chrysler corp". A also has right idiom "forbade...to" in the past tense
