Not surprisingly there has been no support whatsoever for the lately booked and imprisoned actor-film commentator Kamal R Khan. For years Khan posted abusive tweets and made sordid comments on Bollywood personalities.
“We were just wishing he would disappear. Now God has finally granted us our wish,” a young talented actress often a brunt of Khan’s perverse barbs, confided in me.
Surprisingly Shatrughan Sinha, whose daughter Sonakshi has been a brunt of KRK’s bestial barbs has come forward in support of KRK.
Sinha tweeted, “One should not forget that Kamal Rashid Khan @kamaalrkhan & one should always remember that despite great opposition & struggle the ‘KRK’ is a self made man, he has the blessings of the Almighty. He has made his place in the film industry, as well as society on his own. His biggest asset has been his confidence; he seems to speak without any fear or favour. He doesn’t shudder to speak his mind against all odds as he has the conviction & freedom of opinion/speech of any kind, within the framework of law/constitution, even if not accepted.”
Sinha says he is aware KRK’s toxic comments. “I know he makes uncalled for highly personal remarks about stars. And if he is disrespectful to ladies then he must be punished . But as per the law. The haste with which KRK has been taken into custody smacks of a plot to put him inside .”
Sinha explains he is not supporting KRK’s filthy content. “I am only defending his right to defend himself. Everyone has the right to give his point of view. Let him have his say on why he has maligned the industry for so many years.I know he will find it very difficult to justify his public comments on film folks. Hatred is not a very comfortable position in life.”
