The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader Amey Khopkar and Shiv Sena has issued a warning against ‘Bigg Boss 14’ contestant Jaan Kumar Sanu, son of the legendary singer Kumar Sanu.
Shiv Sena, Maharashtra’s ruling party, has also demanded that Bigg Boss’ shooting permit be cancelled.
Jaan reportedly asked his fellow contestants to not talk in Marathi on the show. Following this, the two political parties that were formed to protect the rights of Marathi manoos have demanded action.
Ameya Khopkar has alleged that Jaan has insulted the Marathi language inside the show. He said, “Within 24 hours if Jaan Kumar Sanu doesn’t apologise then Bigg Boss 14 shooting will be stopped”, according to media reports.
He added, “If one has to stay in Maharashtra then you have to respect Marathi language.”
मुंबईत राहून तर आता तुझं करिअर कसं बनतं जान सानू तेच बघतो आता मी.लवकरच तुला स्वत:ची चीड येईल ही माझी गॅरंटी. तुला थोबडवनार लवकरच आता आम्ही मराठी.
आणि कलर्ससारख्या वाहिनीने खरंतर हा सीन वगळायला हवा होता, पण एडिट केलं नाही ते बरं झालं, गद्दारांची तोंडं कशी असतात ते समजलं.

In a tweet, Shiv Sena secretary and the head of the party’s Chitrapat Sena Aadesh Bandekar said, “Bigg Boss showrunners and the person [Jaan Kumar Sanu] must immediately apologise to Maharashtra and the people of Maharashtra. The person should be immediately evicted [from the show]… Maharashtra government should withdraw shooting permission of those who indulge in defaming the state.”
बिग बॉस च्या व्यवस्थापनाने व ह्या व्यक्ती ने महाराष्ट्राची व मराठी जनतेची त्वरित माफी मागावी ज्यानी हे कृत्य केले त्याची तातडीने हकालपट्टी करावी… अशी बदनामी करणाऱ्यांची चित्रीकरण परवानगी महाराष्ट्र शासनाने रद्द करावी… शिवसेना चित्रपट सेना
