John Abraham stands by Kangana Ranaut; Says actors must take a stand if they are politically aware
Time and again we have come across questions regarding how much politically aware our Bollywood celebrities are and whether or not they are obliged to make any social or political comments. Last night after the success bash of ‘Manikarnika’, Kangana Ranaut blasted all the B-town actors like Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor for not taking up stands and refraining from making political statements.
Today at the trailer launch of ‘Romeo Akbar Walter‘, handsome hunk John Abraham was asked about his views on Kangana’s statement. The actor said, “If they are politically aware, then I think Kangana definitely is (right). She has got a voice and I think you must take a stand if you are politically aware.”
He went on to add, “You shouldn’t be like I say ‘stupidly talented’. You cannot be an idiot who doesn’t know anything about which countries lie where and what’s happening. If you don’t know what’s happening in Bihar or Syria then you should just shut up and show your mug that you have done so much work on. Don’t talk.”

However, John also warned against making politically charged statements just to be in trend. “Making a statement at the right time is important. Not making a statement for effect or to trend. So I am not in the business of trending. I don’t want to trend. It’s good to show good films, educate your audience and move on with life,” the actor stated.
That was some very valid points made by John. Don’t you guys agree?
