Shalini Thackeray, MNS leader said, "Marathi films must be given prime time shows. 'Deva' wasn't given screen space against 'Tiger Zinda Hai'. If Hindi film industry takes screen space at expense of Marathi films, we'll oppose it. Haven't threatened anyone, want screen space for Deva."

"Tiger Zinda Hai" has been a much-anticipated Bollywood entertainer in a year which has not seen too many blockbusters. Besides the buzz around its one-of-a-kind action sequences and exotic locations, the on-screen reunion of Salman and Katrina after a gap of five years, has piqued the interest of Bollywood buffs.

'Deva Ek Atrangee' is directed by Murali Nallappa and stars Ankush Chaudhari in the lead. The film also stars Tejaswini Pandit, Spruha Joshi and Paddy Kamble in pivotal parts.
