Aditya Pratap, the petitioner, said, "We had filed the petition in Bombay HC. Daily people are humiliated in multiplexes when their bags are checked & food items are thrown out so that multiplexes can sell a Rs.5 popcorn for Rs.250 and make money. We welcome Maharashtra govt's stand on it. "

Maharashtra Government on Friday decided to formulate a policy on what action is to be taken against halls/multiplexes which don't allow people to carry food items inside halls/multiplexes.

Last month, a group of persons belonging to Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) assaulted the assistant manager of a multiplex while protesting against the ''high'' prices of food items sold there.

The incident took place at the PVR Icon multiplex situated in the Pavilion Mall on Pune's S.B. Road.

In a viral video clip, Kishore Shinde, along with two other MNS members, was seen repeatedly slapping the assistant manager. They were also seen threatening some staff members who tried to intervene.
