Chandigarh, Feb 6 (IANS) True to his satirical ways - even on the sensitive issue of north Indians versus Marathis playing out in Mumbai - comedian Jaspal Bhatti says he will soon organise a 'Divide India' film festival here.

'I want to invite Raj Thackeray to inaugurate this 'Divide India' film festival given all that he has done to divide communities in Mumbai in recent days,' Bhatti said after doing a skit in Chandigarh's busy commercial hub of Sector 17 here Tuesday.

Bhatti, popular for his satirical skits like 'Ulta-Pulta' and 'Flop Show' on television which take up social issues, said people in the country need not be divided on the lines of films alone but also on the basis of food, clothing and other things.

'I demand that the film censor board be immediately disbanded and divisive politicians be put on this board. Instead of 'A' (adult) and 'U' (universal) certification, the certification should be based on language, state and region like 'M' for Marathi, 'P' for Punjabi, etc. ,' Bhatti said.

Bhatti added that films of one state or language should not be allowed in any other state and if anyone from a particular state watches a film from another place, he should be jailed.

The comedian said students of his MAD Arts School would plan the 'Divide India' film festival in the near future.

Bhatti's new idea comes in the wake of Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena engaging in a campaign against north Indians in Maharashtra.
