After questioning an FIR against his daughter Alia and not Sonakshi Sinha in the AIB Roast case, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt today not only agreed with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP and actor Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter but also complimented her for her “maturity at this tender age.”
Bhatt’s tweets came after Sonakshi replied to his reported comments asking why she was not named in the FIR and claiming “certain forces are orchestrating this series of events. You have to be naive not to see that.”
In response, Sonakshi tweeted: “Dear @MaheshNBhatt, a couple of pointless FIR’s have been filed before this (delhi and kol (kolkata) if im not mistaken, in which my name was mentioned and Alia’s wasnt. I don’t remember my father questioning them as to how or why so.
“I do agree with you however, if these FIR’s are filed on 2-3 members of the audience, why not the other 3,998. Lets not give these people the attention they so desperately seek. And as far as my memeory (sic) serves me, nobody EVER went to jail for laughing,” she tweeted.
To this, Bhatt replied: “@sonakshisinha TRUE! I could not agree with you more. Thank you for your SANE response. Amazed by your maturity at this tender age. Love.”
The FIR was registered by the Mumbai Police yesterday against 14 persons including actors Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt, besides the organisers and participants of the controversial ‘AIB Knockout’ show, on several charges including obscenity.
