The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has opposed the screening of a dubbed version of the yet-to-be-released M S Dhoni biopic to be shown in Marathi language in the state.
“By dubbing such movies in Marathi you are creating competition for local films, which are already facing problems. A Maharashtrian as it is follows Hindi. If he wants to see the film, he can watch it in Hindi,” said MNS Chitrapat Karmachari Sena president Ameya Khopkar.
The MNS claimed that the party has asked the producers of the film to take back the Marathi version. “If they do not take back this dubbed version we will protest in a democratic way,” Khopkar said.
The MNS claimed that the party is not opposed to the movie if it is shown in Hindi.
