Shettys flex their political muscle!

“Panipuri viku shakta… rajkaran nahi karaycha!” thundered Raj Thackeray in one of his recent election speeches. What he meant was that the migrants from UP/ Bihar are free to sell street food in Mumbai but should not try to meddle in the state politics! Interestingly similar anti-South Indian rhetoric by his uncle in the 60s has forced the Bunt (Shetty) community to take to politics in a big way… with 5 members from this community having good chances of making it to the Vidhan Sabha.

3M is amused that the Bachchan family has best of both worlds… Amitabh is from UP and Aishwarya is a Bunt!
