If there is someone who doesn’t flinch from making their opinions crystal clear, it is senior actor Naseeruddin Shah. The ‘OK Jaanu’ actor is known for expressing his opinion on all sorts of issues that concern the nation.

Recently, Shah was praising the three Khans i.e. Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, talking about how they’re undoubtedly ruling Bollywood even now. The veteran actor has worked with all of them in many different movies. He also said that they were wise enough to not express their views on socio-political issues as they stand to ‘lose’ a lot. For actors of their reputation, according to him, it would be best to not talk about it.

Indeed, the three Khans are tight-lipped when asked about these issues.

While talking to NDTV, he said, “Obviously they’re worried because of the extent of harassment they will be subjected to. I cannot speak for them but I can imagine they have so much to lose. They would be subjected to all kinds, all manner of harassment, not just financial. Their entire establishments will get harassed.”

The actor recently got in the midst of a row when he made a statement about those celebrating the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan.
