Rane gives green light to 'Zenda'; to be released soon[DOWN][/DOWN]
After getting the green light from Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane, the much-awaited Marathi movie 'Zenda' (flag), depicting the rivalry between Shiv Sena executive chief Uddhav Thackeray and his estranged cousin Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, will be released soon.
According to sources, Mr Rane saw the movie yesterday and gave his nod for its release after suggesting some changes. 'Zenda' director Avdhoot Gupte had sent a DVD of the movie to Mr Rane, who is in Kankavali.
As per the changes suggested by Mr Rane, the name of a character in the movie 'Sada Malwankar' will be now 'Sada Panwalkar'. The language the character speaks, 'Malwani', as well as some scenes involving Malwankar will also be changed.
After this, the movie will be released soon, most probably on January 22, sources added.
The movie was earlier slated for release on January eight, but was postponed after the Swabhiman outfit, led by Mr Rane's son Nitesh Rane, objected to depiction of Sada Malwankar's character, portrayed as negative, in the film. The character bears keen resemblance to Mr Rane.
Both the Sena and MNS had already given a go-ahead for the release of the film, but it was delayed following the objection by Swabhiman.
Meanhwile, controversy surrounding another Marathi movie, 'Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho', still continues as both sides, director Mahesh Manjrekar and Akhil Bharatiya Maratha Mahasangh, which has objected to the name of the movie saying that it is an insult to 'mother', are adamant on their stand.
