NEW DELHI: After Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, another leader of the Modi brigade has invited controversy and shame for the Bharatiya Janata Party. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has asked the cinemas owners in Maharashtra to show Marathi movies during Prime Time (6PM to 9PM).

The statement from Fadnavis has attracted massive criticism from both within and outside the film fraternity.

According to the new orders, it will now be mandatory to play a song in respect to Dada Saheb Falke. Earlier, national anthem was the only compulsion.

While Mukesh Bhatt has criticized the new order announced by the Maharashtra government, renowned author Shobha De too has expressed her views on matter on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
