The “Piku” star, who is currently shooting for an upcoming film in Kolkata, said the “disturbed World affairs” have affected him a lot. “The pain of killings and death of our brave heart soldiers. Of the destruction by nature from the morning earthquake in the North Eastern region of our land, close by to where we are now.
“The disturbed World affairs… The weeping and the distress of the families of those lost forever… The anger and outrage, the raised voices and concerns of the common us… The anguish of what we live in and what we shall leave behind for ours..DISTRESSING, DESOLATE AND DISMAL.. Why ..??!!!”
