Movie politics picks up in Chhattisgarh

Tuesday, 14 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and his cabinet colleagues watched the film ‘Chhapaak’ while former Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh and other BJP leaders watched the Ajay Degan      starrer ‘Tanhaji- The Unsung Warrior’ at Magneto Mall based theatre on Monday evening.

Former minister Brijmohan Agrawal raised question that when a film made on acid-survivor starred by Deepika Padukone ‘Chhapaak’ has been made tax free, why not the film with a patriotic film ‘Tanhaji’ too made tax free. Such films should be promoted by        government. “We are going to activate the imagination of the government by watching the film.”

Former Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh interacting with media said it is a patriotic film of an unsung hero of Maharashtra and everyone should watch it. He did not answer to question of       ‘politicialisation’ of film by political parties.

After Deepika Padukone had visited JNU premises, the BJP and its frontal organisations have been opposing the film making a call for boycott. Taking this cue, the Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan governments announced the film as tax-free. Since the the BJP has been   promoting the film ‘Tanhaji’.
