However, the manager flatly refused saying that their request of playing Marathi songs cannot be considered. The following night, a group of MNS workers led by Hemant Sawant barged into the bar and sought an explanation from the manager Sunny Raina. An ugly clash was averted after Raina admitted his mistake and tendered an apology in front of the camera.
“We are not against Hindi, Punjabi or any other Bollywood songs, but at the same time demand for Marathi numbers cannot be snubbed in such a manner. Apart from playing Marathi numbers at regular intervals, the management has agreed to play them on demand.” said MNS leader Robert D’Souza.
