“He just said, ‘I don’t want to speak about it’. But sir, it’s so dirty that you have speak up. Because Kathua rape to me is not that somebody belonging to a religion didn’t do it. But the reason it was done, to threaten a group of people to leave that place. And just because they are from your party, you will go and stand by them? Protest for them? This is not done [sic] ” said Prakash Raj. While talking to Barkha Dutt, the star said, “What have I got to gain? I respect him for what he (Bachchan) is, but I am requesting him to ‘please join hands, it’s important’. You are not talking, against a party. You are talking against an issue, a thought process, which is not right for this country.” Also Read - Big B Wears Face Shield on KBC 12 Set, Urges All to be Safe
