Farhan Akhtar has always been known to voice his opinion on different issues. Recently, the actor decided to hit back at BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao over his remarks that most Indian film stars have “very low IQ and very low general knowledge.”

The actor took to social media platform Twitter to express his anger. He wrote, “How dare you, sir?” Mr Akhtar tweeted and tagged the BJP leader. “And to all film people in his ranks... Here’s what he thinks of you. Shame sir (sic),” the actor wrote.

Farhan’s comment was in reaction to an interview the politician gave to news channel over the ongoing controversy on Tamil film Mersal that has scenes critical of the GST and the Digital India initiatives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
