Govt encouraging filmmakers to make propaganda films, says Naseeruddin Shah :

“They are being encouraged by the government to make pro-government films, to make films lauding the efforts of our beloved leader. They are also being financed, also promised a clean chit if they make movies which are propaganda, to put it bluntly,”

Naseeruddin Shah has been a part of the Indian film industry for almost five decades.

Recently, the actor was all over the news after he made a statement about those celebrating the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan. Talking about the same, he added that using the word ‘celebrate’ was perhaps inappropriate.

On those who were offended by his comments, Shah said, “There is an atmosphere of bottled hate just waiting to be released. People are waiting to take offence to anything. If they had heard my statement, they would have realised there is nothing to get their knickers in a twist about.”
