Mumbai: Shiv Sena has once again threatened to end the alliance with BJP (Yes, they are still alliance partners) and this time they may even be serious. Uddhav Thackeray has asked BJP governments in Center and Maharashtra to place a ban on the song ZIngaat from the upcoming Bollywood movie Dhadak, failing which, Shiv Sena will not contest 2019 Lok Sabha elections with BJP.
Dhadak is a remake of Marathi superhit Sairat marking the debut of Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor and is set to release this July. Fans of original Sairat were already displeased with the trailer of the film and the Bollywood treatment given to a Marathi classic but the Hindi version of Zingaat seems to have pushed their anger beyond boiling point. To protect the sentiments of ZIngaat lovers, Shiv Sena has raised this demand so that the song no longer hurts the ears of the lovers of the original.
Speaking to Faking News, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said, ”We knew they were going to ruin our Marathi film but still, we thought let them give it a try but the treatment given to ZIngaat is simply unacceptable. It has hurt the sentiments of the people and an immediate ban is required. They should also be fined for offending all Marathis in general and Zingaat fans in particular for this terrible act.”
After hearing this news, Dhadak’s producer Karan Johar reached MNS leader Raj Thackeray’s house where he was told that this time it is the other Thackeray who is upset.
Meanwhile, people selling tickets in multiplexes have already requested additional security after hearing that someone may have been offended by an upcoming film.
