: Mukesh khanna,tweeted , “Naseer, You need not worry about the safety of your children in India. If crowd ask your children “who are you?” then all they have to say is that they are the children of the legendary actor Naseeruddin Shah. Crowd will lift them on their shoulders & give them lots of respect”.
Giving assurance to the veteran actor, Naseeruddin Shah, Khanna highlighted the importance of one’s work over their religion, caste or creed. Adding on to this, the second tweet of Mukesh Khanna talks about the fraternity being above the parameters of religion. “Naseer we actors have no religion. Whole nation respect us for our work. They have given love to You & Me for our work. Kind of love, respect & adulation you got from our country you would never get anywhere else. So stop bothering. You are of this country and country is yours.”, Khanna tweeted.
There are several reactions registered from different wings throughout the country on Naseeruddin Shah’s comment regarding his family’s security against mob violence. This was a modest way of communicating assurance to Shah by keeping one’s profession as his/her identity rather than his/her religion. The film fraternity certainly is certainly divided into two sides by one side being sure about country’s tolerance level and the other Denying it.
