The Anupam Kher Naseeruddin Shah spat brought into sharp focus the divisions in the Bollywood fraternity over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Anupam Kher hit back at fellow actor Naseeruddin Shah, describing him as a frustrated actor whom he did not take seriously. Shah had earlier called Anupam Kher a clown and added that sycophancy was in his blood.

In his response in a video posted on the microblogging site Twitter, Anupam Kher remarks that coming from Naseeruddin Shah, such comments were nothing new. Earlier he had made critical remarks about legends like Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Shah Rukh Khan and Virat Kohli, as well, Kher pointed out. Kher said he felt he was therefore, in great company. The actor took a dig at Shah saying that long-term substance abuse appeared to have taken its toll on him. He concluded by telling Shah that what he had in his blood "Hindustan."

Here's the tweet posted by Anupam Kher in response to Naseeruddin Shah's comments:

Anupam Kher has been a strong supporter of CAA and the ruling BJP's policies, while other Bollywood filmmakers and actors have criticised the Act.
