Bollywood threatens to leave Mumbai

Please come to Delhi !
and get raped?
I like them bollywood girls, I won't lie
If Bollywood leaves Mumbai, it will badly dent the GDP of Mumbai.
I think Bollywood is so well entrenched in Mumbai that it will become hard to vacate en masse from Mumbai. They can have an additional Studio away from Mumbai though.
Is it really that big an issue, this "vandalism"? I never thought it was that much of an issue, especially with something as massive as bollywood.
Anyway, "leave Mumbai" is easier said than done - as though they can pack up and move so easily.
Bombay should be made a city-state a la Delhi. All metros should be.
And they should be centrally administered, like Chandigarh.
central administration sucks, local governance !
I suppose both has its pros and cons. I definitely would like a safeguard against squatters, slum-dwellers, and footpath-encroachers, who form a vote-bank to the local politicians. Local governance does not help in this regard.
The root cause of the problem is the havoc caused by these nationalist self appointed moral police organizations; the city's iconic and lucrative industry wanting to leave is merely another symptom of the disease.
Just as the "-e-" mid name serves as the indicator of impending disaster for any Pakistani organization so does the suffix "sena" in India (or some variant of it like sene). These senas are nothing more than organized crime rings with political representation. They instigate and feed on the insecurities of many Indians who are falsely under the impression that the West is destroying their morally superior and sacrosanct culture. Given that these thugs are practically immune to legal recourse due their political connections they are free to act upon their chauvinistic impulses by engaging in violence and other disruptive actions with impunity. Now "preservation of culture" becomes an excuse to disrupt critical trade and business, public events, assaults on minorities, migrant workers, courting couples and defenseless young women. Sadly all of these idiotic actions are extremely self defeating and counterproductive for the society at large. I can't imagine how much revenue the city of Bombay loses every year due to disruption and violence perpetrated by these thugs.
Actually they can, just as the textile industries did back in the 70s. Also Gujarat has stepped in and offered a better deal which includes safety and superior infrastructure.... and Gujarat's record on attracting frustrated large businesses who got screwed elsewhere speaks for itself.
Bombay is clearly in need of local governance given its scale of complexity. However merely localizing governance won't achieve anything if the contenders are bigoted criminal degenerates. Further empowerment of these organized crime rings masquerading as political parties can result in a disastrous blow back.
When did MNS become local Hindu nationalist political party cadres.
its only rape if an fir is lodged
They are talking about Bhojpuri cinema leaving Mumbai.... it should! only the migrant workers watch that cheap crap
LOL at all the geniuses above...and at anyone who thinks bollywood and cinema bigwigs are loosing any sleep over violence on poor U.P, Bihari workers.
Cheap crap it may be, but the Bhojpuri film industry is highly lucrative. It makes no sense to single out this industry only because the audience is mostly made up of migrant workers and their ilk.
This is a threat that should be taken on.
The assets the film industry has, if they move out of Bombay, will make them bankrupt!
because it was written by Rahul Bedi, a stupid defence lobbyist
MNS is figthing for Marathi manoos, they are not "Hindu nationalist"
They are planning to move Hollywood any how most of bollywood movies are hollywood movies with hindi version and Music thanks to our great music directors (Pritam, anu, lots of them ) ........
