There has apparently been chatter about moving Bollywood from Maharastra as the ruling party is not happy with Mahrashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.
While there is a lot of bad blood between Shiv Sena and BJP, that bad blood has now spilled into an all out war.
There has been a lot of conspiracies going around in relation to Bollywood. This all started when actor Sushant Singh Rajput took his life on June 14.
After that the story kept unfolding. New angles and conspiracy theories took hold and the investigation turned into a war with Bollywood.
The matter turned on its head when leading news started accusing Bollywood collectively as being responsible for his death. Murder they called it.
Now the matter where Politics and Entertainment collide.
Plans are being made to overthrow Maharastra CM Uddhav Thackeray and his government. According to the CM, one way to do it is to malign the main source of income generator to the state. Bollywood.
“Bollywood enjoys a following across the globe. The film industry generates huge employment, while actors get popular because of the movies. However, in the past few days, attempts have been made to malign the image of the film industry by certain quarters, which is painful. Moves to finish-off the Bollywood (film industry) or shift it elsewhere will never be tolerated,” Thackeray had said on Thursday.
Sanjay Raut in Saamana said,
“Attempts are made to defame and demoralise Bollywood. In a way, it is an attempt from behind the curtains to finish off Mumbai and Maharashtra’s identity. It’s not as easy as moving the International Financial Service Centre out of Mumbai. Mumbai is not only the financial capital but also the entertainment capital. The chief minister has spoken to prominent people from the industry and has assured them,”
The Sena mouthpiece stated that the attempts to discredit the film industry started after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in Mumbai.
“Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide was shocking as well as unfortunate. But the drama that followed on the small screens (TV news) was unbearable… Allegations of drug abuse was made against Bollywood, Daily lies were screamed [on channels] but no evidences were ever presented,” the article argued.
