MUMBAI || A bitter war of words has broken out between veteran film actors Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin shah over CAA and NRC. Naseeruddin Shah, in an interview, had poked fun of Kher and said that he has heard that the actor was very active on social media and added that his comments should not be taken seriously.
He went on to call Anupam Kher a joker, whose “sycophantic nature” was very famous even in his National School of Drama (NSD) days. Sycophancy was in Anupam Kher’s blood, Shah has gone on to say.
Kher responded through a video statement on Twitter on Wednesday and said that the world in fact took Shah non-seriously as he was is in the habit off making off-the-cuff remarks on even Bollywood greats like Amitabh Bachchan.
To be named by Shah is certainly being in a good league, Kher, a known and avid supporter of prime minister Narendra Modi, went on to say that the world knows the Shah has been “taking a special thing” for which no one takes him seriously and the world knows of his frustrations. Anupam Kher also said that if there was anything in his blood, it was Indianness!
