Hitting back at Anupam Kher for his comment to expel Yogi Adityanath from the party, BJP MP from Gorakhpur called ‘Dr. Dang’ a ‘real life villain’.
“Everyone knows about the character of a villain. Anupam Kher is not only a reel life villain, but also in real life,” Adityanath said.
“I thank Anupam Kher for what he has said,” he added.
“I don’t want to say anything more on his statement made in Kolkata,” Yogi added.
Anupam Kher had said in the Telegraph Annual Debate: “There are some people in the party (BJP) who speak nonsense, and ill-behave, whether it is Sadhvi or Yogi…they should be put behind bars, thrown out of the party (…Hain kuch log aise party mein jo bakwas karte hain, chahe wo Sadhvi hon ya Yogi ho, unko andar kar dena chahiye aur unko nikal dena chahiye),” Kher said.
Last year, the veteran actor came in defence of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, after Yogi Adityanath made some scathing remarks against the ‘king of romance’.
Condemning BJP MP Yogi Adityanath’s remark against SRK, Kher said that the remark is unfortunate.
“Yogi Adityanath’s remark is unfortunate and cheap. He is BJP’s Digvijaya Singh,” he said.
Kher’s statement came after Adityanath slammed the Bollywood superstar and compared him to Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed.
