The cast of Indian Marathi-language romance film Sairat has joined Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's film workers' union. Director Nagraj Manjule and lead stars of his film, Rinku Rajguru and Aakash Thosar, recently became members of the Raj Thackeray-led union and were spotted at the MNS Rajgad party office Tuesday.

They also reportedly filled forms to join the Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena. President of the organisation, Amey Khopkar, said, "There are many actors who are becoming members of the Chitrapat Sena because they have trust in Raj sir's vision- what he wants to do for the film industry. We work for Hindi and the Marathi film industry, and they appreciate and value that." 

Khopkar said over 200 people from the fraternity have become the members of the union including Irrfan Khan and now, Manjule. "If you face any problem while shooting, our people or even sometimes Raj sir helps them. Ours is the strongest cinema wing in the industry," he added.
