Twitter war between Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah on Kashmiri Pandits’ issue


Mumbai : A Twitter war has broken out between two veteran Bollywood actors, This time it's between veteran actors Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah. After the former questioned the latter's campaign for displaced Kashmiri Pandits.

Shah took a pot shot at Kher questioning his campaign saying he was neither born in Kashmir nor does he live there. "A person who has never lived in Kashmir has started a fight for Kashmiri Pandits. Suddenly, he became a displaced person," Shah said.

In response to Shah's tweet, Kher wrote, "Shah Saab ki Jai Ho. By that logic NRIs should not think about India at all". Kher further clarified that he had great respect for the actor and didn't expect such a sensitive statement from him. My roots are in Kashmir. I don't want to prove my credential of being a Kashmiri Brahmin. It's a very insensitive statement, I don't think such a statement befits from a person like him," Kher said.
