Ranveer Singh said how the attack had left him frustrated and angry. The response to Gully Boy was rejoicing and overwhelming. I should have been on top of the world.
But I was actually down in the dumps. I was disillusioned. I was frustrated and angry”. Later in an event on answering a question about the ban on Pakistan artists in India, Actor Ranveer Singh said, “If one soldiers’ mother believes that we should not engage with Pakistan, we should honor those wishes”. He also added, “ at the same time, us as artists, or us as sportsmen, or us as spectators, we are not sacrificing the way some of our compatriots are”.
If there are people in the forces or their near and dear ones, loved ones, what their sentiments are, how they feel about it should have the highest value and highest importance”. Just to remind you of the ban imposed by cine organizations after the February 14 attack.
