Now, multiplexes face Raj Thackeray's ire

August 10, 2010 21:22 IST

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray on Tuesday warned multiplexes which are not showing Marathi films despite government directives.

"Prepare a list of multiplexes that are not showing Marathi films from Wednesday," Raj told his partymen on Tuesday at the third anniversary of the MNS Cine Workers Association.

Despite the government resolution which makes showing of Marathi films compulsory, the multiplexes are breaking norms and this cannot be tolerated, he said.

"I want everything in Maharashtra to have a reflection of Marathi culture," he said.

Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Jitendra, who was present at the function, congratulated the MNS Cine Wing for doing a great job against piracy.

"You are doing a good job against piracy and a great service to the film industry," Jitendra said.
