Mumbai, Oct 23: A recent depiction of the Marathi Manoos (marathi commoner) on the show Big Boss upset MNS Chief, Raj Thackeray who sought an apology, while Shiv Sena executive, Uddhav Thackeray though it was perverse.

Raj Thackeray earlier had objected to the stereotypical depiction of Marathi people as servants in serials and films.

"It is a perverse presentation for publicity. I don't watch the show, and even the people should not watch it," said Uddhav Thackeray on the show Big Boss.

"There is no need to give importance to such shows. Those who watch it will comment," he said.

Meanwhile, MNS Chief , Raj Thackeray sought an apology from the channel-Colors.

"If the channel is expecting that my workers will go and ransack its office, then I am not going to do that."

The MNS Chief however in a warning tone said that the contestants of the show would be out some day and they would then decide on what "reply" should be given to them.
