Mumbai:

The Shiv Sena today attacked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his attempts to reach out to Bollywood to make movies in his state on a day-long visit to Mumbai.

“It is not easy to shift Mumbai’s film city to another place. The film industry in south India is also big. There are film cities in West Bengal and Punjab, too. Will Yogi ji visit these places, too, and talk to directors and artistes there? Or is he going to do it only in Mumbai?” Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut asked today in Mumbai, according to ANI.

Mr Raut’s statements come on a day when Mr Adityanath is set to meet a delegation of Bollywood personalities, including filmmaker Subhash Ghai and Boney Kapoor, to discuss the future of a proposed film city in his state.

The government has reportedly approved such a large facility in Sector 21 along the Yamuna Expressway.

His visit to Mumbai is also aimed at seeking investments from Mumbai-based firms for Uttar Pradesh’s development. Early Wednesday morning, he rang the opening bell at BSE, marking the listing of the Lucknow Municipal Corporation bond.
