Irate Filmmakers Call The Cops On MNS

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena may have just got a taste of things to come.

MNS workers who barged onto the set of Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt’s upcoming film on the pretext of examining cards of the unit members were stumped when Mahesh Bhatt called Commissioner of Police Arun Patnaik and Home Minister RR Patil.

Mukesh Bhatt & Mahesh Bhatt

Known for being outspoken, Mahesh Bhatt is one of the few people from the Hindi film industry who have not given in to the demands of Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, and has got MNS chief Raj Thakeray worked up in the past.

A tabloid quoted Mukesh Bhatt as having said, “The MNS has started interfering in the film industry as if they have the power to do so. They want us to work with their people.”

He added, “Many other film producers have been subjected to harassment of a similar kind. But we shall not bow down to their demands to have their party people employed in the film industry. It’s our choice who we want to work with. Political interference of any kind, in this regard, is simply uncalled for.”

The people of Mumbai have been growing increasingly frustrated with the bullying tactics of MNS and Shiv Sena, and the Bhatts dragging in higher authorities to answer these political parties back sets a great example for others. Good call!

    I am an immense admirer of Mahesh Bhatt as a person : he is a man of great integrity and is not at all afraid of calling a spade a shovel.

    As to Shiv Sena and MNS,and the Thugerays (no,there is no spelling mistake)who “rule” these parties of gundas (for people not familiar with the language, gundas are cowardly thugs) : aren’t they just terrorizing people of the city (Bombay),state (Maharashtra)and may be further afield ? So,by definition,does it not make them terrorists (that they really ARE)? In the recent past,they have got Karan Johar grovelling and apologizing to the despicable MNS fuhrer. And the latest idiot-in-line (is it some kind of femilial genetic disorder ?) — that boy,
    Aditya Thugeray, who got Rohinton Mistry’s book,Such A Long Journey, banned from the Bombay University curriculum. Who runs the state of Maharashtra — the chosen governance or Shiv Sena (SS) and MNS ? Interestingly,I bought the abovementioned book AFTER Thugeray Minor gave it free publicity (I TOLD you the boy is an idiot): I think it is a brilliant book !!

    How I wish there were more Mahesh(and Mukesh) Bhatts and less cowering Karan Johars and Shahrukh Khans !! Not even in your make-believe Bollywood,it seems ! Ah,cest la vie.

    Take care.
