Amidst the reports of a bitter war of words between the veteran actors, Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah, over the Kashmiri Pandit campaign, the former has informed that Shah has denied making any such statement.
When Kher was contacted by ANI, he said, "I have contacted Naseeruddin Shah. He has denied making such statements. He (Naseer) told me when I have never said all this for so many years then why will I say now?"
All the spotlights went on the two actors when Shah reportedly took a potshot at the Saaransh actor during the promotion of his new flick Waiting.
He allegedly questioned the authenticity of Kher's campaign for Kashmiri Pandits, saying "A person who has never lived in Kashmir has started a fight for Kashmiri Pandits. Suddenly, he became a displaced person."
When PTI approached for his comments, Shah said, "I don't want to say anything. I don't want to give any reaction. This is misreporting."
Shah's alleged remark has triggered fierce reactions on Twitter earlier.
