Bollywood backs Bachchans against MNS

Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan (AP Photo)
MUMBAI: Bollywood actor and Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan has apologised for her alleged anti-Marathi utterances after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) activists went on the rampage in Mumbai, tearing off posters of films featuring members of the Bachchan family. ( Watch )

Jaya, speaking to reporters late on Monday, apologised and said the comments made by her were completely unintentional and that no one should take them seriously.

She said: "I am extremely sorry if any of my comments have hurt the sentiments of the people here. It was said casually and without any prejudice. I have the deepest regard for the state and its language. I can even speak Marathi well and I will have respect for the state till the end of my life."

MNS chief Raj Thackeray on Monday demanded an unconditional apology from Jaya for her alleged anti-Marathi utterances, failing which the party would prevent screening of all films starring any of the Bachchans in Mumbai.

He said that the actress had "insulted" the state and its people under the guise of promoting the national language.

At a film function here on Saturday night, Jaya had said: "People of Maharashtra, please excuse me. I am from Uttar Pradesh so I will speak in Hindi."


However, MNS leader Shishir Shinde rejected Jaya's apology, saying that she had spoken before just a handful of journalists who did not belong to the Marathi media.

Shinde told Marathi mediapersons on Tuesday that Jaya must call a press conference where Marathi newspapers and channels are invited and then apologise before them.

But he added that her apology would nevertheless help assuage the sentiments of all Marathi-speaking people.

After Thackeray called for an apology from Jaya on Monday, MNS activists tore off movie posters of Bachchans’ films outside multiplexes in suburban Kandivli, Goregaon and Dadar. MNS activists even tore off a huge hoarding showing Abhishek in an advertisement.

There were reports of similar acts of hooliganism from different parts of Maharashtra like Akola, Nanded and Yavatmal districts, the police said.

I can understand Jaya and Amitabh speaking in Hindi as they are fluent in it and is their mother tongue. However, why did she have to rub salt by saying 'since we are from UP'.

This will unnecessairly give fuel to Raj Thackrey.

Re: Jayaji's comments ...

The MNS leader is getting so vocal abt his anti-Indian tirade, but still the government keeps its mouth shut. They want proof . I dont understand what proof do they want . Somehow Vilasrao Deshmukh doesnt believe that the Maharashtrian junta will side with him when he put anti-Indian Raj behind bars.

The most attacks by MNS was against the Bachans, so it was but natural that they will bite back, but alas they didnt have the guts to stand against his hooliganism . Yeah its the money !!!

But in all respects its the common man who bears the brunt . Never heard them tore down the Bachan bunglow, always hear some random guy losing his source of income. And still the Government wants proof. And this random man maybe a Marathi too .

Raj !!! You are a biggest arsehole and a very down-grade person .This is from a proud Maharashtrian and an Indian at heart and I hate you bastard !!!

Re: Jayaji's comments ...

Raj Thackrey is putting Maharashtrians to shame. I do not agree with him. His issues might have been valid many many decades ago. What he is trying to do today is bullcrap and I dont agree with him at all.

Instead of enforcing Marathi - which does not need to be and has flourished over the years without such help - he should try to get good English education for all as its English which differentiates us from rest of the developing world. This is evident from the offshore jobs that we get.

Think of increasing employment and make every Marathi medium poor class young person capable of speaking English and get a job in a call center at the very least. At least this is a better way of earning a living than having to stay jobless.

Anyway, Raj Thackrey is a storm in a tea cup and will die down when elections come around. This moron and his party will get nothing in the elections.

Neither She is from UP nor she is from Bengal. She was born & braught up in MP. Her father Dr. Bhaduri was a practicing doctor in Bhopal, & her family members still live in Bhopal.

Since she is becoming a 'perfact' poltician under the decipleship of Amarsingh, she has all the rights to change her domicile

It is further interesting to note that Bal Thakre's father was from MP and migrated to Maharashtra for job when Bal was a kid. And now he is the Flag bearer of Marathians ..

Cha Pai ,It is done purposely and on advice of Amar Singh. If you see this is done by Congress where both SamajWadi Party and MNS will attack each other. Both Will consolidate their votebank and in the end support congress defeating BJP/ShivSena combine.

Congress is playing with both Smajwadi Party and MNS to beat MNS/BJP combine. Good Politics i must say.

Both BJP/Shivsena hands are tied.They can't attack Samajwadi party role in Bombay as they will loose votes in UP and Bombay(North Indian). They also can't attack Raj Thakrey so agressively as they will loose Marathi votes.

Good Politics by Congress

Re: Jayaji's comments ...

Don't be surprised to see a MNS/Smajawadi party/Congress combination next time beating ShivSena/BJP and probably NCP combine.

Then Raj Thakrey and Amar Singh will unite to fight communalism and Raj Thakrey will become secular and a egg on his uncle's face.

I like the matured way Balasahab Thakrey is handling this although i didn't expected this from him . Probably advise from BJP.

Solution is attack Bacchan Family most dirty way but never attack UPites.

Balsahab is doing most correct thing.

Re: Jayaji's comments ...

Okay here is a question I want to ask. South Indian Film Star Rajanikanth is a Maharasthrian and was a bus conductor in Maharashtra State Transport buses.

Since he became a super star in Tamil Nadu, he has NEVER said once that he is a Marathi and so he will speak in Marathi. He has totally immersed himself in the local Tamil culture and considers himself to be from Tamil Nadu.

Many years ago, during the Muhurat ceremony of "Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja" starring Anil Kapoor and SriDevi, I had the good fortune of speaking with Rajanikanth. Only when I was talking to him in a private ocassion did he speak back to me in Marathi.

If South Indian Mega Super Star Rajnikanth can become one or atleast not show that he is from a different region in Tamil Nadu, then is it too much to expect from learned people like Jaya Bacchan to not make unnecessary jokes and add fuel to the flames already present.

If Mumbai has given so much to the Bacchans, then why rub salt and add that they are UPites.

Same goes to Shahrukh Khan - why keep on saying he is a Dilliwalla.

Mumbai has become like a whore, where people all over come to her, rape her, use her and then when things get going, then people want to say anything but 'I am a Mumbaiyya'.

Thumbs down Re: An OPeN Letter to Didi Jayaji and Bhaiya Amitabhji Bachhan

I somehow fail to understand why the Bachchans are always in the Thackerays cross-hair?

Why are they always picking on them when there are hordes of other successful North Indian stars residing in Bombay?

As for Mrs. Bachchan's remark, its obvious that she intended it to get back at the Thackerays. While most Maharashtrians don't give a damn about this, the Thackerays are hell bent to use this incident as a whole anti-Marathi stance by the Bachchans.

Dirty politics at its worst.

Excuse me ! I and many other Maharshtrians are angry about arrogant remarks by Jaya B. Just wanted to let you know. I don't have anything to discuss further. Thanks.
