He further said that the fact was that Shane was just 22 years old. His misbehaviour on sets cannot be justified but banning him for it is not required. He further said that the actor’s personal views were his own and no one had the right to stop him. He also said called Shane Nigam, a talented actor. In October, Shane Nigam had alleged that he had received death threats from Goodwill Entertainments producer, Joby George.
