Amitabh Bachchan today said the nation is incensed and it is time to express solidarity with the Indian jawans. Amitabh who turned 74 today was speaking to media persons on the on the occasion of his birthday.
He said, “The nation is incensed we all know that. People of this country are very angry by the incidents that have been happening at the border. I think it is the time to show solidarity to our jawans and our armed forces who are sacrificing their lives so that you and me can be safe here. That is what needs to be put in question. Nothing else.”
When the actor was asked if Bollywood is divided over supporting Pakistani artistes working in India, he said, “With folded hands I request you that this is not the time and I don’t think it is right to put forward these questions.”
Since there were rumours floating that Bachchan will be singing a song for Uri martyrs, he refuted reports saying, “This is not correct. I was in New Delhi where a Member of Parliament said I should sing for this (Uri martyrs). I said yes ok but I need some inputs. I think he went and said I should sing and from ‘should’ it became ‘will’, you know better how it happens”
