Actor Vicky Kaushal has an interesting rebuttal on Open Letter Controversy and Intolerance Debate which is a rage these days in Nation.
URI actor Vicky Kaushal graced the NBT Utsav Awards here in Mumbai and during his media interaction, the actor said there is no need to generalize everything.
Talking about the “Intolerance” debate, actor Vicky said, “Intolerance, see it is a very big word and you just cannot generalize it. It is really not necessary that if I didn’t see something then someone didn’t see it too, if it hasn’t happened with me, it hasn’t happened to anyone else. Our nation is huge, and whatever happens or takes place in interiors, even I don’t know, I see what happens in my world”
“It is not fair to ask people what you think about intolerance, what do you feel? It is big term, and you just cannot answer it frivolously, as to what I feel. I can only take responsibility on a personal level, in terms of cleanliness, unity and wishing only the best of the country and society around you. I believe that I can only bring change which I want to see in country and society, if I change myself” added Vicky.
Bollywood is once again divided on Open Letter Controversy, where around 49 celebrities including filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, Mani Ratnam, Aparna Sen, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, and Konkona Sen Sharma, wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, expressing concern over the growing cases of lynching in India.
Though some sixty-two celebrities including actress Kangana Ranaut and writer-lyricist Prasoon Joshi, came out with a counter open letter slamming the earlier one.
He said, “It is my belief, having an opinion and discussions and debating over some issue, it benefits the society and it is great that we’re getting to express it as it is important to express things and it’s a good thing. The main thing is that, whether you belong to any group, as long as our motive is progress of the nation, it is all good. I am glad that we’re at a juncture where discussions are happening, debates are happening, and people are getting a chance to put their opinion forward, and they are being discussed, so it is always very nice”.
The actor has an interesting line of releases in coming time, including, The Vanishing Act, Udham Singh and Takht. He will also be seen in ‘Bhoot: Part One – The Haunted Ship’ and Meghna Gulzar’s untitled project based on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.
