The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has warned TV channels Colors and Sahara to stop airing the programme "Sur-Kshetra" that features Pakistani vocalists or face "consequences".
"We are against (TV) channels who invite Pakistani singers. It is their tactic to create controversies and hence gather more TRPs," said Amey Khopkar, president of Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, a group affiliated to the MNS.
"We have written to Colors and Sahara not to air the show. Otherwise we will disrupt their shoot schedules," he added.
"I have requested her not to be a part of the show as a diva like her is looked upon by many, and hence she should not be sharing stage with Pakistani vocalists," Khopkar said.
"When Pakistan is inflicting injuries on us, why should we entertain Pakistani artistes?" Khopkar asked.
Reacting to the MNS stand, Bhonsle said she was a proud Maharashtrian who believed in the idea of "atithi devo bhava" (a guest is like a god).
"I don't like politics because I don't understand it... But I love Raj Thackeray. In spite of whatever he thinks about me, I still love him. I am a singer and I understand the language of music," Bhonsle said.

I think the show is wonderful idea but, it's gonna end badly if its gonna be a competition. I have a bad feeling about this. I have very sweet, and nice Muslim friends, why can't India and Pakistan get along?
Amey Khopkar is dumb, does he not realize that their are very talented actors/hero in the bollywood industry that are Muslims? And their getting a Padma Shri award from India!
annoying politics now creeps in places its not needed at all. . . this MNS or whatever it thinks it is. . is totally biased and incorrect in my pov. . bringing politics into uneeded places . . is like placing someone's nose inside a beehive forcefully
