Paresh Rawal faced a lot of flak for his recent comment that people of Gujarat would tolerate inflation but not “Bangladeshis and Rohingya” next door. During a rally in Gujarat, the actor had reportedly stated, “Gas cylinders are expensive, but their price will come down. People will get employment too. But what will happen if Rohingya migrants and Bangladeshis start living around you, like in Delhi? What will you do with gas cylinders? Cook fish for the Bengalis?”
A Twitter user wrote, “Fish shouldn’t have been the topic. He needs to clarify” on Paresh Rawal’s video from the rally. Tweeting his apology in response, the veteran actor wrote, “of course the fish is not the issue AS GUJARATIS DO COOK AND EAT FISH . BUT LET ME CLARIFY BY BENGALI I MEANT ILLEGAL BANGLA DESHI N ROHINGYA. BUT STILL IF I HAVE HURT YOUR FEELINGS AND SENTIMENTS I DO APOLOGISE.”
Paresh Rawal is an active Twitter user and he was the one who had confirmed Kartik Aaryan’s presence in ‘Hera Pheri 3’.
