Amit Thackeray is slated to get married on January 27 in Mumbai with Mitali Borude, a fashion designer.
Mumbai: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray Saturday called on his estranged cousin and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray to invite him for his son Amit’s wedding.
A Shiv Sena source said that the meeting, which lasted for about half an hour, was completely apolitical. After the visit, Raj also met another cousin Jaydev to extend the wedding invite to him.
Amit Thackeray is slated to get married on January 27 in Mumbai with Mitali Borude, a fashion designer. According to sources, his wedding will be a low-key affair with the presence of few selected people from political, corporate and film circles.
The meeting had assumed significance as despite Raj’s earlier attempts to extend his hand for co-operation, Uddhav has cold-shouldered him by ignoring all feelers for ‘Marathi-Manoos’ parties (MNS— SS) joining forces.
Raj had a bitter falling out with Uddhav in 2006 when he quit Shiv Sena and formed his own party.
Amit and Mitali had campaigned for the MNS in some election rallies. During the 2017 civic polls, Amit started a Facebook page to interact with voters. The page has more than one lakh followers. In recent times, there has been clamour in the MNS to induct Amit into active politics like his cousin Aaditya, who is into full-fledged politics.
