Movies, their releases, and Politics have become the recent topic of discussion in the city. After the ‘Padmavati’ controversy, now Raj Thackeray’s party MNS has pulled Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ into an argument by submitting a petition to the cinema halls and multiplexes asking them to distribute fair number of screens to Marathi Films ‘Deva’ and ‘Gachchi’ which are all set to hit the theatres on the same day with 'Tiger Zinda Hai' December 22.

While talking to the media, Amey Khopkar, the president of MNS cine association mentioned that If the theatre owners don’t fall in line then MNS will teach them a lesson in their style. He also mentioned that YRF studio has more influence and therefore no theatre owner is ready to give bookings to Marathi Films. Such unprofessional behavior from YRF’s side won’t be tolerated.

MNS leader Shalini Thackeray averred, “Marathi films must be screened at the prime time slot; Deva is not given the fair number of theatre screens as allotted to Tiger Zinda Hai. If Hindi film industry grabs screen space at the expense of Marathi films, we’ll oppose it. We haven’t threatened anyone; we just want screen space for Deva.”

Earlier Bollywood movies like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Mohala Assi, Fanaa, My Name Is Khan have seen strong opposition from various political parties.
