On a day when Salman Khan faced a barrage of opposition over his controversial defense of death row convict Yakub Memon actor, politician and Lok Sabha MP, Shatrughan Sinha rooted for him saying, “Supporting anybody’s mercy petition is not a bad thing. I know Salman Khan for a long time. He is a good man. He has not said anything wrong about Yakub Memon who has already filed a mercy petition. I think there is no harm in supporting anybody’s mercy petition,”.
But it’s not just shotgun Sinha who finds himself in the midst of the controversy for his statement. Parineeti Chopra too has been in the news for campaigning for ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ without the knowledge of some of the ministers.
