Sourav Ghosh controversy with name Shivaji Maharaj
In his Mumbai Airport video, Sourav said “why Mumbai has 2 airports. Even if it has two airports, why both have the name Chatrapati Shivaji. You can also choose a different name. One airport must have Shivaji name, the other one should have Non-Shivaji, and the third one should have Maybe-Shivaji airport. They also have a railway station of name Shivaji. Now, they are solving the airport confusion by putting Maharaja before Shivaji name”.
This was his jokes at Mumbai Airport where he used the name of Shivaji Maharaj.
These things didn’t stop here. Random person commented on his video that he shouldn’t disrespect Maharaj Shivaji. In reply to this comment, Sourav used very bad words for Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Marathi people. The below screenshot is of the whole conversation on the Youtube comment section.
A video on the Internet claimed that the people beaten him badly and slapped Sourav Ghosh on Shivaji Maharaj comments. Maharashtrian who couldn’t tolerate these all incidents against their King found and chopped him.
Maharashtrian found it offensive as they have sentiments attached with the name Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Most of the places in Maharashtra are named on Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to pay tribute. But, this kind of jokes couldn’t be tolerated in Maharashtra.
The official video name ‘Mumbai Airport’ removed from his channel.
