Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah spoke about his views on the mob violence prevalent in the country, and his comments about how he fears for his children on imagining the situation where they might be questioned by a mob as to if he is Muslim or Hindu sparked quite a controversy. This came after the incident when a policeman was killed in mob violence in Bulandshahr district where cow carcasses were found earlier. And Naseeruddin's statement came after three men were arrested in the cow slaughter case but nothing progressed. 

Anupam Kher, reacting to Naseeruddin's statement told ANI, "There’s so much freedom in the country that you can abuse the army, badmouth the air chief and pelt stones at the soldiers. How much more freedom do you need in a country? He said what he felt like, it doesn’t mean it’s the truth." And now, in reply to Anupam's statement, when Naseeruddin Shah was asked if he was ready to have an argument with him, he told India Today, "Not really, because he doesn't talk reasonably."

The actor further quipped that he doesn't see any connection between what he said and Anupam's comments about pelting stones and abusing the Indian Army. He also said that he respects the Indian Army and has a lot of regard for them. And later on, when Anupam Kher was asked to reply to this, he said that he doesn't wish to talk about it in the press and that Naseeruddin Shah has his own interpretation and he respected him for that. He further told the publication that if he wishes to tell him anything he will call him or go to his place and say, "Aao jhagda kar lete hai ya gale mil lete hein."

i never understood his fame. no excellent talent or look. how he became a main hero?

Typical liberal behavior....Calling any views disagreeing with him as unreasonable. Freedom of speech is a two way street Mr.Shah.

Pakistan's PM Imran Khan was supporting Naseer's statement and showing sympathy to him. Naseeruddin Shah reacted to this by saying that Imaran Khan should mind his own business.

Please don't make anyone a traitor or something because of what they say or their religion . Naseeruddin Shah respects our country as much as others are.

Both actors should spend time in promoting stopping the hate culture in their respective communities

Naserreedin should not go to any show that Anupam Kherr the great liberal that he is presenting himself to be on the west, is on! Because it would be loud rude, Anupam,,giving false equlivancey!,

Naseeruddin Shah has greater respect for the Army and knows more about it than Anupam Kher who talks through his hat! Naseer’s brother is a decorated General retired from the Army and his father was in the services too. AK is a loudmouth.

What’s really disappointing is two intelligent men who are one of the best talents India has produced argue and belittle each other in public. Naseer has made digs about Anupam in the past.
