After the controversies surrounding Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati began to die down a bit, another Bollywood film finds itself in trouble. MNS chief Raj Thackeray has issued fresh threats to cineplex owners over Salman Khan-starrer Tiger Zinda Hai slated to release on December 22.

Thackeray said that cinemas should feature Marathi film Deva in the prime-time slots. The MNS also stated that regional films shouldn't bear the loss over big-budget star releases and that Marathi films should get enough time slots.

"It's not threat. We want Marathi films to be screened at prime time as they don't get enough time slots. Why should regional films bear the loss? There's nothing wrong in promoting Marathi culture. Cineplex owners have to abide by our demand, you can take it as a threat," they said.

The film, being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, stars Katrina Kaif alongside the actor.


Ah these gimmicks.

I refrain from saying anything more.

Why are they forcing cinema owners? It's their wish which movie they wants to show.

This is called gundagiri in simple words. cinema owners have the right decide what to show
It's their wish ,which movie will give them more profit they will show that.
But just for the sake of publicity he is doing all these & Indian media will give him what he want.
N as always govt will be mum.
So these things will continue to happen in future also.
