Several movies, TV and web shows have been at the center of controversies as they have been accused of hurting the feelings of the people.

On Sunday, Akshay responded to Prime Minister Modi’s statement. As quoted by Indian Express, the actor said, “Positivity is always welcome. And when our Prime Minister says something like that. He is India’s biggest influencer. If he says something and things change, it will be great for the industry.”

Akshay also added: “And why not, things should change, because we go through so much. We make films, go to the censorship board, let them pass and then someone says something and phir gadbad ho jati hai (it gets messy). But now that he has said it, I think it will be better for us.”
