Kunal Kohli, Anubhav Sinha defend Saif Ali Khan
While most of the Mumbai film industry chose to keep mum about Punchgate, only two filmmakers chose to speak on the Nawab’s behalf
While Twitter wags were busy taking digs at Saif Ali Khan’s ‘first solo hit’, his Hum Tum director Kunal Kohli was one of the first to speak up in his defense on Twitter. Kohli said, “Saif explained the whole incident on TV just now. It’s unfair to tilt opinions against anyone just because he’s a star.” He further added, “Without knowing Saif’s side of what happened how can anyone just believe what this guys saying is true.”
Singer-composer Vishal Dadlani tweeted, “Let me put it this way. IF Saif was provoked or hit first, I think he did what many of us would do. By ‘us’, I mean myself and you guys.” He added, “Unlikely that Saif hit that guy without extreme provocation. At times hecklers get so obnoxious/personal/aggressive, that one has to react.” RA.One director, Anubhav Sinha, also chipped in for Saif, saying, “TV Celebrating Saif’s Pdmashree tonight more than ever before. Makes for good sensation. Anyone interested in what actually happened?” He added from his own experience, “Have personally seen stars take a lot of shit because they MUST behave responsibly. I am sure this coin has two sides too.” He concluded by saying, “I mustn’t take sides if I don’t know the whole story. NOR SHOULD YOU.”
Unfortunately for Saif, many of his co-stars and directors chose to not comment on the issue, while some, like Preity Zinta, were away shooting for films abroad. We picked up some tweets that we thought were kind of funny without hitting below the belt… just for laughs!
