Cautious Anil Respects All Voices of Protest


Panaji: When various personalities in the country are shouting about the growing rate of intolerance, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor is optimist that it would be resolve soon as he respects all type of protests. The Tezab actor feels that India is a diverse country and everybody have their own views and opinions as this protest is a sign of a healthy democracy.

“India is a great country, it is diverse. We have problems but we always come out with solutions and positivity and have lived happy and peacefully for so many years, unlike many other countries,” Anil told PTI on the sidelines of International Film Festival of India (IFFI), which begins here in the western Indian state of Goa on Friday.

“There’s obviously room to make it better and it had to be done through protests sometimes. I respect everybody protesting and presenting their feelings forward. I respect all of them, all the voices of protest. That’s what is great about our democratic country,” said the actor, who is the Chief Guest at the opening ceremony.

“Cinema is a very powerful medium and through it we can do a lot more than tell stories. It addresses issues. I always believe that you can show things that are disturbing you in films,” the “Dil Dhadakne Do” star added.
