Actress Parineeti Chopra and actor Ayushmann Khurrana graced the launch of the song ‘Ye Jawaani Teri’ from their upcoming movie, Meri Pyaari Bindu in Mumbai today. Both of them were in a happy and chirpy mood!
Parineeti and Ayushmann both made a grand entry by singing a song from the movie, and we must say, they sang it beautifully! But when the house was open for the Q&A session for the media, a question was asked about Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian who has been branded as a spy by Pakistan army and is sentenced to death. When Parineeti was asked to comment on this, she said, "I really feel that I am the least important and least worthy to comment on this genuinely. Our government is on it, they are dealing with it the way they should and they will do what's absolutely best for our country, for the person involved and I don't think my opinion matters."
When a journalist asked Parineeti and Ayushmann if they as a public figure should express their opinion or comment on any national issue, the Ishaqzaade actress said, "Again to each is own ya! I feel yes we are actors and we are actors because we love acting and we love entertaining you guys, we love to be in films. But just because our voices reach the whole country, I don't think you can suddenly force me to have an interest or opinion on something that which is not concerned to me. If I am genuinely a sports enthusiast, I will comment on something that is happening in tennis for example! But if I don't have any knowledge or I don't have the interest, then I shouldn't be forced to give an opinion just because I am in front of you. That's what I personally feel. And those who want to comment can comment, those who don't want to will not comment. It is a democracy but I think we are forgetting that."
Further adding up to this, Ayushmann said, "I think both the counties have totally different narratives. For them he is a spy, for us he is our defense personnel... People don't even know what's happening there. ISI, RAW... You and I can't talk about it. How can we say who's right, who's wrong. Being an Indian, we can only support our country and our soldiers."
Well, they have a point!
