An FIR is lodged against the veteran actor Om Puri for disrespecting the Indian Army. The complaint is registered at Andheri Police Station on Tuesday.
Om Puri was called on a TV channel for discussion on Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association’s (IMPAA) indefinite ban on Pakistani artists to work in India after the terrorist attack in Uri. On the show, Om Puri had said, “Who had asked soldiers to join the army? Who told them to pick the weapons?” The complaint alleged that the actor had insulted the Indian army and the nation.
There is heated debate going on currently wherein Bollywood is divided on this issue. Some are favoring the ban on Pakistani artists while some are opposing it.
