A few months ago, the makers of Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal were in for resistance from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena after they decided to release a dubbed Marathi version of the film. A statement issued from their end said that such dubbed versions could eat up the theatrical business of Marathi movies. While MNS has decided to stick to its stand of opposing Marathi dubbed versions of Hindi films, the same won't apply to Ajay Devgn's upcoming film Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
The film revolves around Tanhaji Malusare, a brave military leader of the Maratha Empire who fought alongside Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The party believes that the film should be dubbed in not just Marathi but as many languages as possible and released worldwide. They also emphasise that everyone should witness and bravery of Shivaji the king and his army. Soon after the announcement, Ajay took to Twitter to thank MNS for 'allowing' Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior to be released in Marathi. "Thank you Ameya & MNS for allowing us to showcase our film Tanhaji in Marathi & Hindi simultaneously. It's our privilege to be able to share the story of this brave Maratha warrior in his mother tongue as well as the National Language," he wrote.

Hindi is not our national language and Marathi is Maharashtra state language.
All languages are equal
