Veteran Bollywood actor Nana Patekar on Thursday said that both the Hindus and Muslims belong to India and division and discrimination in the society is not desirable. Nana Patekar said this while answering questions from journalists about the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ on the sidelines of an event in Pune.
When asked about the debate about the film ‘The Kashmir Files’, which deals with the issue of exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley in the 1990s, the actor said, “Hindus and Muslims very much belong here, and it is necessary for them to live together and they must live together. If division is taking place, it is wrong”.
However, Patekar also said that he has not seen the film yet and would not be able to comment on it. “But creating controversy over a film is not good,” he said.
Significantly, Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ is getting mixed response. Many people are telling this film as propaganda, while there is a large section who is in support of this film. A lot of debate is also being seen on this film.
