Taking the saffron bandwagon and Hindutva ideology ahead, the Maharashtra Navanirman Sena (MNS) launched its new flag, which is saffron in colour with the Shivmudra in the centre, at a conclave organised by party chief Raj Thackeray on Thursday. Apart from the event being a re-launch of sorts for the party, it also turned into a launch pad for Raj's son Amit as an MNS leader. Just like his father Raj and grandfather Bal Thackeray, Amit too is a cartoonist. Environmentalist, Caricaturist, and Footballer are few of the facets of his colourful yet illustrious career so far. From being a cute and innocent kid, Amit has risen to be one of the famous and most talked about Mumbai celeb. (All Pictures Courtesy/ Midday photographers, Instagram, and Facebook photos)
