Cashing in on the high-voltage moment, Raj Thackeray-led MNS has taken charge of the situation and decided to felicitate him. But it's not just for the 'gallantry' or efficiency he displayed. Dalvi responded only in Marathi to the actor's English abuses, and this has made him rise in the eyes of the MNS. Party members have called upon Dalvi, and it seems the guard has agreed to meet them.

"Since the incident happened in our area and such exemplary courage was shown by one of our own Marathi manoos, we, being from South Mumbai, decided to honour Dalvi.
