Nawazzudin clarifies he never asked for banning Vivek Agnihotri’s movies


Even though Nawazuddin Siddiqui made it clear he never backed the ban on The Kerala Story, Vivek Agnihotri questioned whether the actor’s films and online television shows should also be outlawed.The actor responded to the “false news” by tweeting that he “would never want any film to be banned ever” after a news outlet claimed that he supported The Kerala Story’s prohibition in several places. In response to a news story concerning Nawazuddin’s purported remark about The Kerala Story, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has now commented.

Sharing a tweet from new portals with the subject line “If a novel or a film is hurting someone, then it is wrong: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui supports calls to ban the movie The Kerala Story,” Nawazuddin was questioned if he supported the ban on “most of his films and OTT shows.” He suggested that the actor’s television and film productions hurt people by containing “unnecessary abuse, violence, and perversion.”

Most Indian middle class families believe gratuitous violence, depravity, and abuse in films and OTT series injure them and their children, Vivek tweeted. Can Nawaz recommend if the majority of his films and OTT shows should be outlawed? What do you think?

Earlier, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui on Friday had clarified that he doesn’t support the practice of banning films, rubbishing news reports of him justifying the ban on The Kerala Story.

“Please stop spreading false news just to get some views and hits, it’s called cheap TRP – I never said and I would never want any film to be banned ever. STOP BANNING FILMS. STOP SPREADING FAKE NEWS,” he tweeted, calling out news portals for carrying his fake statement on banning The Kerala Story.
