UP Government to count on Film industry in hope of Employment
Mumbai: After Yogi Adityanath talked about building a film city in his own state during his visit to Mumbai, Shiv Sena slammed the Uttar Pradesh CM for wanting to take away film industry from ‘tinseltown’.
Through its’ mouthpiece, Shiv Sena said “Moving industry and film city out of Mumbai is not as easy as taking a chocolate from a child’s hand.” In Saamna’s satirical style, Shiv Sena called Adityanath, a ‘saint from the heart’.
“The main purpose of the saint’s visit to Mumbai was to build the most beautiful tinseltown in Uttar Pradesh, just like the one in Mumbai. His government has also provided 1,000 acres beside the Yamuna Express for its construction. The saint has now come to Mumbai for further action. At Trident’s monastery, he consulted prominent people associated with the film industry in Mumbai,” said Shiv Sena.
Shiv Sena said lack of employment makes people come to Mumbai looking for job prospects, “There is unemployment there (UP)… Artists, musicians, writers, from cities like Lucknow, Kanpur, Meerut, had been coming to Mumbai for years to build a career. Will Yogi take all these people with him?” it asked.
Shiv Sena mouthpiece added that the intentions were good but it cannot threaten the industry here.
Following the meet of Akshay Kumar with UP CM, Shiv sena took a dig at the Bollywood actor, “Photos of famous Shiv Sena’s commentary came after Chief Minister Adityanath met actor Akshay Kumar on Tuesday and talked about building a film city in the state.”
According to a release by UP’s Information and Public Relations Department, the move was aimed at ensuring opportunities for the unemployed youth.
Shiv Sena shouldn’t raise fingers at others. They should 1st rectify their culture with Bollywood. If they want to keep something (Film City), they should keep it, no one wants to take it away.
