Dear Amitabh Bachchan

Dear Amitabh Bachchan

In the context of the recent attacks by Raj Thackeray on you, DNA has reported that you and your family are “willing to face any punishment if found guilty.”

Guilty for what? For hurting Marathi pride? However tasteless you or Raj may find it, do you see it as a crime that deserves ‘punishment’?

That is what your statement implies, and it does a disservice to your fellow citizens and to the cause of free speech.

Also, it actually furthers Raj Thackeray’s agenda. I hope you sleep well at night now.
