After disrupting the shooting of AB Corp's Bbuddah yesterday, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has cleared that it is not targeting Amitabh Bachchan. A group of cine wing activists from the party stopped the shooting and claimed that the makers of the film have hired foreigners, who do not have Indian work permit.
A party spokesperson has stated that they do not target anybody and the MNS has done it before during the shooting of the film, Game. She added that the party has demanded the cops to take action against the the co-ordinators, who mediated and roped in the foreign nationals.
In its complaint, the MNS has accused that 47 foreigners are illegally working for the film without proper work permit, which is against the law. It also added that the makers of the film have not taken the necessary permission from the concerned authorities for the film's shooting.
It may be recalled that MNS targeted Amitabh in 2008, alleging that he was more loyal to UP than Maharashtra though he got all the popularity in the state. The superstar ended up apologising to the outfit. His wife Jaya was also attacked for making a statement at an event that she would speak in Hindi as she is from UP.
Meanwhile, director Puri Jagannath has apologized the party for the mistake and has promised that this kind of incident will not repeat again.
