In a heated debate, conducted by IBN 7, on the ongoing issue of the ban on Pakistani talent, Om Puri made some brutal remarks on the Indian Army. What followed was hate and harsh criticism from Bollywood as well as from the common man.
In the wake of this new controversy, an FIR has now been lodged against the actor in Andheri East police station in Mumbai.
Owing to the growing tension between India and Pakistan, the actor was asked about his opinion on the issue, and his response hurt the sentiments of the other panelists.
This is what he said:
He was embroiled into a new controversy and Twitterati was quick to explode!

Very depressing and sad statement by #ompuri ji. Real heroes are the one who fights for the country.

After listening #OmPuri I am convinced no matter how big B’wood star/artist is, his/her loyalty/allegiance to India is always questionable.
