Earlier I use to troll the trolls but when things starts happening with your family when I got such a message from my daughter and the kind of reaction I got from her. I didn’t know what to do”
“I knew I had to file a complaint, which I did. I filed the FIR, went to cops, I did everything, and they also have their own process. I came to understand the entire IT related process for the first time because it is not about where the message was sent, who sent it, where did you receive it, where was my daughter, there are lot of things you needs to look into, I had to change three police stations before I went to the correct one and FIR was filed”

And I have fought with every government, when my films got banned, I fought congress as well. And as a citizen, it is my right to fight government for my right. I don’t fight parties, I fight government. I live here, I vote and I can still have a contrary opinion and it can co-exist”
