जनाब नसीरुदिन शाह साब के लिए मेरा प्यार भरा पैग़ाम!!! वो मुझसे बड़े है। उम्र में भी और तजुर्बे में भी। मै हमेशा से उनकी कला की इज़्ज़त करता आया हूँ और करता रहूँगा। पर कभी कभी कुछ बातों का दो टूक जवाब देना बहुत ज़रूरी होता। ये है मेरा जवाब। 🙏 pic.twitter.com/M4vb8RjGjj— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) January 22, 2020
Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah recently aired his views and expressed his thoughts on the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 (CAA), and in an interview with The Wire, he openly bashed the Government for implementing CAA, among other things. He lauded Deepika Padukone and her courage for visiting JNU and showing solidarity with the students. He also called Anupam Kher a clown and a sycophant and said he does not need to be taken seriously. Now, Anupam Kher has posted a video reacting to the jibe.
Anupam Kher took to his Twitter handle and posted a video to share his message for Naseeruddin Shah. In the video, he suggested that Naseeruddin Shah’s judgement is clouded because of the ‘substances’ has consumed for years. He also claimed that he made it to the list of huge stars Shah has criticized such as Amitabh Bachchan, Virat Kohli, Shah Rukh Khan and more, so he believes he is in ‘good company’. In the video, Anupam Kher stated, “If you could criticise Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Shah Rukh Khan and Virat Kohli, then I'm sure I'm in great company. And none of them has taken your comments seriously. Because we all know this is not you speaking. The substances you have been consuming for years have taken away your sense of judging what is right and wrong."

For the uninitiated, Naseeruddin Shah in his interview with The Wire, had said, “I am not on Twitter. These people, the Twitterati, and I really wish they would make up their minds in what they believe in. Someone like Anupam Kher has been very vocal. I don't think, he needs to be taken seriously, he is a clown, any number of his contemporaries from NSD, NFTII can test to his psychopathic nature, it is in his blood, he can't help it.”
