Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has questioned Naseeruddin Shah for reportedly questioning the former’s credentials while championing the cause of Kashmiri Pandits.
Kher tweeted, “Shah Saab ki Jai Ho. By that logic NRI’s should not think about India at all.:) Naseeruddin Shah on Anupam Kher.”

Kher’s comments just before Shah told ANI that he had not any such comments and blamed ‘misreporting’ for comments being attributed to him.
He said, “I have not said any such thing, this is all misreporting.”

Kher too later told ANI that he had spoken to Shah, who, according to him, denied making the reported comments.
However, in the ANI video broadcast by ABP News, Shah was seen saying, “Whatever I had to say I have said. I have nothing more to add.”
PTI had quoted Shah as saying, “A person who has never lived in Kashmir has started a fight for Kashmiri Pandits. Suddenly, he became a displaced person,”
