He said, "The best thing right now for all of us would be to stay calm...It's easy to talk about what people have gone through there while doing an event here. So, the best thing, right now, for entire India would be to stay silent."
'If we stay quiet, things will fall in place'
The director added, "Everyone has been talking and chaos is increasing. If we stay quiet, things will fall in place."
"There's a chief minister, others are there. Has anyone seen riots? You'll be s**t scared. One should never engage in it. I can give a lecture...But right now, we should stay silent about it for a few days...Until it is sorted, let's not speak."
