Arjun was also in no mood to sit silently. He tweeted, “No religion allows violence. Nothing in this world justifies what this man has said. The more I read this the more it fuels anger towards this crass thought process. Who gives any man the authority to raise their hand on someone and make them decide what they should do or not do.”
Earlier, Anurag reacted to the controversy and tweeted, “Before my tweet is taken down -Congratulations . Here by all problems of Punjab are solved and Sikh youth have been saved. Happy to be back in LaLa land again. Next time you are threatened by a film please call Kishore Lulla directly on Eros knows how to solve matters in minutes.”
