Akshay exposes MNS'  Shenanigans

John Abraham's production company was producing an ad film starring Priyanka Chopra with quite a few firangs when trouble struck. The actress was shooting a commercial for the camera brand Nikon when something didn't click with the local unions.

Some members of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) had offered 'protection' from all and sundry to the unit where most of the foreigners were sans work permits and some of the MNS men including two of their vice presidents Akash Randher and Satish Bhawaskar took responsibility of handling anyone who would dare to stop the shoot, despite the production not completing association legalities in exchange for some money.

That's when the Maharashtra Cine and Television Sena was alerted about the discrepancies of the shoot. When Akshay Bardapurkar, President of the MCTS sent his men to find out, they realised that the MNS men were shielding the ones doing wrong and immediately Shalini Thackeray who heads the Cine and Television wing of the MNS was alerted an she immediately reprimanded the two VPs and asked them to return the monies and give an explanation for the same.
"We were alerted about the presence of foreigners at the shoot and as per our norms, we did a surprise check to find out of the production company had their papers in order. But little did I realise that we were actually helping the cine wing of another party put their house in order," says Bardapurkar, amused at the turn of events.

Bardapurkar adds further that upon enquiry he found out that the  MNS men were told that it was Shalinitai's production which is why the MNS men were vociferously protecting the shoot and then light dawned of them that it wasn't their production but John Abraham's. Sources say that Abraham also wasn't aware of how the shoot was taking place without proper permissions as he wasn't around at the shoot.
