A few weeks back, Kiku Sharda, aka Palak, was arrested for hurting religious sentiments by mimicking Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on a public platform. When the whole country was protesting against this injustice, Gurmeet Singh was busy shooting for his new movie ‘Online Gurukul’.
And now, when the whole issue is resolved, Gurmeet Singh finally decided to give a brief interview to justify KiKu Sharda’s arrest.
But the question is, why now?
It won’t make any difference now. If he had spoken at the right time, his followers would not have filed the F.I.R and Kiku Sharda could have easily escaped the humiliation of an arrest. Anyway, guess it’s better late than never.
Here are a few key points from the video which might surprise you:
I never felt angry with KiKu Sharda. His acting wasn’t acceptable because he mimicked me offering people alcohol but my organisation has helped 5.5 crore people give up liquor addiction.
We have married off so many sex workers and the actor was shown holding women around his shoulders.
We believed that the actor was innocent but the scriptwriters and the show’s producers who were ‘at fault’.
