Anupam Kher to Naseeruddin Shah: How much more freedom do you need in the country?
Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah is no stranger to controversies. The national award winner is known for speaking his mind and doesn’t believe in being diplomatic or politically correct.
Now, a huge controversy had erupted when, Naseeruddin Shah in an interview said that he fears for his children’s safety. He said that at the current moment, a cow’s life is more important than that of a human being. Now, another national award winner Anupam Kher has decided to jump in the controversy and replied to Naseer’s comment.
According to news agency ANI, Anupam Kher was not amused by the comment and had a strong retort.
Anupam Kher on Naseeruddin Shah’s statement: There’s so much freedom in the country that you can abuse the army, badmouth the air chief and pelt stones at the soldiers. How much more freedom do you need in a country? He said what he felt like, it doesn’t mean it’s the truth. pic.twitter.com/43nAMfK59h

Naseeruddin Shah was sent a ticket from Mumbai to Karachi for August 14 by Navnirman Sena’s President in UP, Amit Jani. He clarified his remarks yesterday after he was trolled and questioned as to what he has said for him to be called a traitor. Naseer has said that his statement has been taken out of context.
Anupam Kher is known for his conservative views and reportedly shares a very close equation with the ruling dispensation. Kher’s wife Kirron Kher is a Member of Parliament (Lok Sabha) from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Hopefully, Kher and Shah can sort out their differences by meeting in person.
