Bollywood films and controversies go hand in hand, don’t they? We are living in the times of volatile atmosphere and invariably Bollywood as an industry becomes a soft target. Now, political party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has demanded the resignation of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi. This over the film ‘PM Narendra Modi’.

The Raj Thackeray led party i.e. MNS has demanded the resignation of Prasoon Joshi over allegedly giving preferential treatment to the makers of the upcoming biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Vivek Oberoi is portraying the character of PM Modi in the film.

“As per the rule, the producers have to submit the final copy of the film to the censor board 58 days prior to the date of the exhibition. So why was special treatment given to the biopic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi?” Amey Khopkar, President of Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, said in a statement.

Khopkar further added, “We condemn the censor board which went out of its way for this film to appease the government. Prasoon Joshi should resign immediately from his post.”

‘PM Narendra Modi’ has been involved in a lot of controversies and many people are suspecting the motive behind making this film. The film is getting released during the Lok Sabha elections and now it will be finally hitting screens on April 11.
