The photographs of Saturday's meeting of Aaditya, son of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, and Amit went viral amid a buzz that the two engaged in some political talks.

The Shiv Sena in a statement clarified that Aaditya had gone to attend a programme where Amit was also present.

"Aaditya's appointment was sought by organisers of a sports event, as he is a chairman of Mumbai District Football Association. Amit was incidentally there, hence they met. Some 10-12 other persons were also present there. There is nothing to read into it," Sena spokesperson Harshal Pradhan said.

"There was no discussion on politics, either," he said.
