Why are we washing our dirty underwear in public? Why are actors who have been content now complaining they are not on posters? Why are actors who didn’t get a certain film complaining they didn’t get it? They didn’t get it. There are so many actors who didn’t get it. If everyone of us starts enumerating out complaints, the film industry will seem like the worst place on earth. And I daresay that is true of any industry. First of all I hope this poor Sushant is laid to rest and people just leave him alone.”

Naseer was maybe speaking about actor Deepak Dobriyal who not too long ago shared the posters of all the films he was in however didn’t discover a place on the posters. “I was in this too. I will live like this, without any complaints. Just one request, I am content with working stills. Next time you tag me, please use a working still. Thank you),” he wrote in his caption,” he stated.

It’s going to be very interesting to see what kind of reaction a Salman Khan film gets on the OTT platform? People watching alone at home, will they still throw coins at the screen? No they wont. It’s a fever that infects everybody,” he stated.
