Actor Ranbir Kapoor wishes that the people of our country are not “swept away” by the aggression that happens around and continues to maneuver away from any sort of bitterness.
He mentioned that he doesn’t want to sound preachy but he urges the youth not to get swept away from any negativity.
His upcoming movie, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is seemingly facing trouble after MNS commanded a ban on the Pakistani artists working in India after the Uri terror attack. This movie which is directed by Karan Johar features Fawad Khan, a Pakistani actor in a cameo role.
Johar explained how banning Pakistani actors from working in India is not a solution to prevent terrorism. Later, Ranbir supported his statement and said,
“I want you guys to stay sweet, gentle, amazing and beautiful. Because even though the world may think that it’s a shitty place to live in, it is beautiful. You guys are the force. And the force is going to be with you, forever.”
However, going by his statement it is clear that he has refrained himself from commenting directly on this issue. But, to voice his concern, he urged his fans to stay gentle.
The actor requested his fans to hug one another as a shrug to spread solidarity and love. Moreover, he also sang and danced on the recently launched song track Channa Mereya from the movie that also stars Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles.
However, the MNS chief Raj Thackeray gave a counterattack at a press conference, spoke in detail about the matter. Raj said,
“Are we short of artists in our country? Why do we need Pakistani artists to work in our films? I don’t understand. Jawans are fighting for us at borders.What’ll happen if they decide to put down their weapons? Who’ll guard our borders? These artists should realise ‘Nation first’. If they have so much problem, we will ban their movies too”.
We are with you Ranbir. More Power to you!
