Govt. must take stern action: Raza Murad condemns attack on Bhansali
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Jan. 28 (ANI): Commenting on the recent attack on Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of 'Padmavati' in Jaipur, veteran actor Raza Murad has said the incident is extremely disheartening and called on the government to take strict action against the guilty.
Venting out his anger, the actor told ANI, "Seeing all this, I feel the film industry should open a censor office in every corner and send their script for approval to every party. Otherwise the same thing will happen time and again. I am amazed by all this."
"There is something called law and order. Who so ever feels like just targets the film industry and its actors. Why do we need Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) if there is a censor board in every nook and corner?"
The 66-year-old said the incident is regrettable and that the government must take strict action.
"There is no space for violation in a democracy. This has to end. The entire film fraternity must come together and the government must take stern action. Otherwise it all seems to be a jungle raj," he concluded.
The director was roughed up by members of Karni Sena at the city's historic Jaigarh Fort on Friday alleging that Rajasthan's history was distorted in Bhansali's magnum-opus. (ANI)
