MNS threatens to derail Chennai Express

Mumbai, Aug 1 : Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express ran into trouble when political party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) threatened to disrupt the release of the movie on Wednesday.

According to media reports, MNS supporters fumed that the Rohit Shetty movie has booked all the prime time slots in single screen cinemas across the state which in turn have affected the regional Marathi movies.

Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena (film wing) chief Amey Khopkar told media, "If the producers of Chennai Express attempt to dislodge any of the ongoing or forthcoming Marathi movies, we shall not tolerate it and deal with it in MNS style."

Khopkar referring to the Marathi hit Duniyadari noted that MNS has urged the owners of the cinema halls for the commitment that Duniyadari wont be taken out from their screens to accommodate Chennai Express.

He said, "If the Chennai Express producers attempt to do this, we shall not let the movie be exhibited in cinemas of the state. We shall also remove their publicity posters from Thursday."

Meanwhile Rohit Shetty along with the UTV productions team and the team of the Marathi film Duniyadari is set to meet the MNS president Raj Thackeray on Thursday to resolve the matter.
