Boney Kapoor placates Raj Thackeray, says Sur Kshetra will take care of public sentiments
Mumbai, Sept 6 (ANI): The producers of the music reality show 'Sur Kshetra' on Thursday sounded apologetic about the show's concept and vowed that public sentiments would be kept in mind in the musical tug-of-war between India and Pakistani artists.
Interacting with reporters after meeting Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray at his residence here, Boney Kapoor, CEO of Sahara One channel, said, "I support Raj Thackeray over his stand and respect his sentiments, and have promised him that in future such things will not happen."
"We will take care of the sentiments of the public. We just said that it has been shot and we respect his stand and emotions of the country. I have explained the kind of situation I am in and that the channel has gone ahead with my vision. I will make sure we keep all these things in mind," Kapoor said.
Also present in the meeting was the CEO of Colors Raj Nayak, whose channel will air the show.
Thackeray has, reportedly, warned the producers against inviting any cross-border celebrities in future.
The show features Pakistani artistes Atif Aslam and Abida Parveen as judges.
Speaking to reporters, Amey Khopkar of MNS' cinema wing said, "We asked the makers if their conscious permitted them to promote those who rage the war against our nation. They realized their mistakes and requested us to permit us to go with the shot 15 episodes which have huge investment involved."
Thackeray had earlier objected to the show, since it features singers from Pakistan, and had dissuaded legendary singer Asha Bhosle from participating in the show. (ANI)
