Bollywood actor naseeruddin shah has hit out at critics writing that the hindi film industry is silent on the issue of female wrestlers' protest.
Naseeruddin Shah: “Is anyone in the hindi film industry ready to make a film about the wrestlers who are currently struggling after giving medals to the country? Do you have the courage to make a film on such a subject? They won't do it. This is because they fear the consequences for themselves. It is nothing new for the hindi film industry to keep its mouth shut on important issues.”
Bollywood actor Vidyut Jammwal: “This is an important question. They are our athletes and before that they are citizens of this country. They should be given the necessary assistance. I think the authorities are listening to the voices of the protesters. But what is the next step? What is the solution to the problem of female players? I am also an athlete. I can understand their feelings. There will be a solution to change this situation.”
