Filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt, amongst many B-town celebs, has condemned the attack on Sanjay Leela Bhansali by members of Rajput Karni Sena, saying that the government is provoking such people by not taking action. 'It's shameful that such an incident has happened in a free country like India where the government is just watching the show. This is a very sad situation where one feels extremely helpless as the government is provoking these kinds of people by not taking action. We, people of film industry, just know how to entertain and are not responsible to handle law and order,' he told ANI.
Bhatt also said any organisation that needs publicity, targets the Indian film industry.
'It's strange that even national parties, by supporting such people, are also stooping to such low level just to increase vote bank. Is that the only agenda of a political party?'
The 64-year-old asks, 'When you haven't even read the script, how can you say the facts have been distorted? Who has given you the power to create a nuisance without any authentication?'
