Aaj Tak told him, “Yeh bahut galat hai, film toh film hai. Jiska mool, maksad entertainment hai. Ab kisi actress ne, orange pehen liya, ya naam kuch aisa ho gaya toh usse ban kar rahe hai? Yeh nahi achha lagta hai (Loose translation: This is so wrong, a movie is a movie. It’s mostly about entertainment. If an actor wears orange, or has a different name, you start banning him? It doesn’t look good).”
