Actor Akshaye Khanna, who plays a crucial role in the movie, The Accidental Prime Minister, sees the reactions as a debate and not a controversy.
Asked about the response to the trailer and the controversy around it, Khanna said, “This is the first time that a film is made on a politician of recent times, taking the real name, and (showcasing) all the real incidents that are very much in the public domain and vividly remembered by the people. Of course, people will have their opinion and they must express them in all the mediums. I do not think these events as controversy. We are living in a democratic country.”
‘Alia (Bhatt) has evolved as a person far beyond her age. She is on her way to greatness. She was really brilliant in Raazi. I have been an admirer of her work and craft ever since Highway. I did some ads with her before and she has lovely energy. But after working with her on, Gully Boy, I realised what a powerhouse of talent she is.’
Actor Arjun Kapoor is taking horse riding lessons to prep for his forthcoming period drama Panipat and says the process of learning has been therapeutic and empowering.
