Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah lately discussed the film’s industry silence on the dispute sparked by BJP representative Nupur Sharma with her questionable remarks on Prophet Muhammad during a TV argument.
Speaking about the silence of the three Khans of Bollywood (Shah, Salman and Aamir) about this issue, the Sarfarosh actor informed NDTV, “I am not in the placement they are in. But I think they are in a setting where they have way too much to shed. I feel they think they would certainly be risking way too much.”
Pointing out the example of Shah Rukh Khan’s boy Aryan’s apprehension in the drugs-on-cruise situation and the exploring company providing him a clean chit later on, Shah said that King Khan was a target of witch-hunt.
” What took place to Shah Rukh Khan and also the dignity with which he encountered it was remarkable. Sonu Sood gets robbed. Any individual who makes any kind of declaration obtains a response.
He continued, “I remain in a privileged position compared to a bulk of Muslims in India that feel intimidated or marginalised. I do not feel marginalised. I am not dissatisfied in this country. This is the country I was raised in as well as I am fortunately in a placement where I can not be marginalised. It is not like my anti-establishment declarations have actually stopped me from obtaining work. I am just enthusiastic that somehow common sense dominates. Directly talking, I do not really feel overlooked. I know my Muslim identity and also my Muslim culture. My partner is a Hindu and also we don’t feel held back. This hate wave will dissipate. Some day.”
Better during the meeting, Naseeruddin Shah appealed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to step in as well as “stop the poison” about the Prophet remark row.
In the same interview, the actor also talked about Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files. He called it ‘a practically fictionalised variation of the suffering of Kashmiri Hindus’ and said that the federal government is promoting it.
