The actor is reported to have turned down the role following tensions between India and Pakistan in February 14.

He said he decided to turn down the role because he doesn’t want to embroil himself in any controversies or be labelled as an “anti-nationalist,” reported the Deccan Chronicle.

    This proves that Mr. Bachan too is scared of what actually goes on in India and what will happen to him. So this is the true picture of Indian tolerant society.

    Here Bushra Ansari can take her get up as Indian as Hindu in recent songs. But people of India don’t even take Pakistani or Muslims get up in movies or so. This is the conservative mind set of Indians always

    This shows that Amitabh is merely a hero of screen but NOT of real life. Sad and disappointing. He is a dumbo with myopic outlook. Man you need to broaden your outlook and learn how a successful man behaves.

    Ms. Mehwish is not upto that level to criticize Mr. Bachan as she would probably take ages to reach there…!
