Raj Thackeray demands ban on “Joker”, receives support from Bihar govt.

Filed under: Bollywood,Featured,General,Latest,Politics |

In a move that is likely to endear him to many of his countrymen, including Biharis, MNS chief Raj Thackeray has called for a nationwide ban on Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’ starring Akshay Kumar.

Speaking to the media just after catching the matinee show at the Ad Labs theatre in Andheri West, a shaken MNS supremo said, “Please forgive me for my previous remarks against Biharis and Hindi channels. Only after watching Joker today, did I realize the extent to which such movies can scramble one’s brains and cause him or her to do and say arbitrary things. In fact, I now believe that my delusional call for eviction of Biharis from Maharastra can be completely blamed on Akshay’s previous movie, Rowdy Rathore, where the hero hailed from Bihar.”

Pausing to take a deep breath, Raj Thackeray added, “For the sake of the collective sanity of not just the Marathi Manoos, but Indians from every corner of the nation, I call for a ban on ‘Joker’. We are also ready to patch up with Shah Rukh khan and apologize for the trouble we created during the release of My Name Is Khan, if the Baadshah is ready to slap Shirish Kunder once again on behalf of the nation.”

Within hours of his statement, support poured in for Thackeray’s demand from all parts of the country. Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar said, “We might have had our differences in the recent past, but on this occasion, I’d like to add that Raj is absolutely right; national sanity is too precious a thing to be put in jeopardy. The JD(U) and the Bihar government fully supports the MNS in this regard.”

Meanwhile, in New Delhi, the Parliament functioned smoothly for the entire day for the first time in weeks, as the Congress and the BJP quickly decided to put the debate on the Coal scam on hold for the time being, and got together to pass an immediate resolution seeking a ban on the film. Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh said, “Given that this movie is a bigger joke than even me, we must put aside our political differences and unite to do whatever it takes to rescue this nation.”

Raj Thackeray is now expected to hold another march to Mumbai’s Azad Maidan and hold a massive rally against the movie and its maker Shirish Kunder. The rally is expected to see the participation of over 2 lakh MNS supporters, hardcore Bollywood fans and occasional cinema-goers who were caught unawares last weekend. The Mumbai police, in a departure from its position vis-a-vis Raj’s rally against illegal immigration, has already given him permission for the march, and has in fact indicated that many of its policemen would join his protest.

    Hi,
    I was a bitter critic of raj thackerey and MNS.
    Not any more!
    Checks and balances have to be there in India.
    Azad maidan riots, destruction of Amar Jawan memorial, and the free run given to Dawood Ibrahim funded desh drohis have woken all patriots from deep stupor.
    A call for Islamic youth 3rd wave violence was given from the safety of Parliament itself by the MP from Hyderabad.
    We have Sonia Gandhi , allowing Catholic Inquisitors like John Dayal to run wild in a brazen manner.
