Vidya Balan reacts on Gurmehar Kaur row, talks about freedom of expression

Actress Vidya Balan is the latest celeb to react on the Gurmehar Kaur controversy. At a recent event, Vidya was quizzed on the topic and she said, “What we need to really respect is everyone’s individuality, don’t want to comment more but I think everyone should have the freedom to express (themselves).” She has clearly emphasized on the need to express yourself freely and not be bogged down under any pressure.

A few Indian sportspersons like Virender Sehwag, wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and actor Randeep Hooda trolled the girl and faced severe backlash. Well of course their sentences were quite hurtful and derogatory. But, Vidya has a calm stance on the issue as she didn’t give out her opinion and instead chose to talk about the need for freedom of expression.

Many other Bollywood celebs like Javed Akhtar, Pooja Bhatt, director Shirish Kunder and musician Vishal Dadlani have come out in support of Gurmehar Kaur.

For those unknown, Gurmehar Kaur is daughter of a Kargil martyr and student of Delhi University who opposed war on Twitter with a picture of herself holding a placard that read, “Pakistan did not kill my father, war killed him”. This was followed by many people bashing her including cricketer Virender Sehwag, wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda.
