Popular filmmaker Hansal Mehta, who is behind critically acclaimed ventures like Scam 1992, Aligarh, Shahid and many more, bashed a user on Twitter for accusing him of choosing politics over his son Pallava. The filmmaker had earlier asked about the roll-out of vaccines and wrote ‘(not) to those who want it, but to those who need it’, by sharing the picture of his son, who is suffering from down syndrome.
A twitter user targeted the director and accused him of prioritising politics over his son and wrote, “Dear Minister of Foreign Affairs, Maharashtra and Mr. @mehtahansal Pallava was eleigible for vaccination in the very first round when it all started as ‘Down Syndrome’ is a disease lowering the immunity and all such cases were included. But bete ki life ya (son’s life or) politics. Tough one.” The filmmaker chose to teach a lesson that user with his reply and wrote, “Downs Syndrome is not a disease. Do some research. Take some time off from trolling. And understand the context of my question first before providing your parroted answers.”
A few days back, Union health secretary Rajesh Bhushan in the health ministry’s briefing said, “The aim is not to administer the vaccine to those who want it, but to those who need it.”
