Why is Paresh Rawal facing HARSH criticism on social media; see what happened!

Paresh Rawal, a seasoned actor, has faced harsh criticism on social media for his divisive comment, "cook fish for Bengalis." The actor had added, "But what would happen if migrants from Bangladesh and the Rohingya ethnic group start settling nearby, like in Delhi? What are your plans for gas cylinders? Cook fish for the Bengalis? This statement did not sit well with internet users, who claimed he had offended people's feelings. According to the most recent information, Kolkata Police has summoned Paresh for his remarks.

The Sanju actor has been called to appear at the Taltala Police Station on December 12 to discuss the situation. This comes after CPI (M) leader Mohammad Salim reported the actor to the police. Gas cylinders are pricey, but their cost will decrease, stated Rawal during his campaign speech. People will also find work. But what if migrants from Bangladesh and the Rohingya start living nearby, as in Delhi?

PARESH RAWAL’S TWEET

The 67-year-old actor turned to Twitter to express regret for offending people after receiving backlash for his comment. Paresh penned, “Of course, the fish is not the issue as Gujaratis do cook and eat fish. However, I meant illegal Bangladeshi N Rohingya, not Bengali. However, I do apologize if I offended your sensibilities or feelings."

PARESH RAWAL ON THE WORK FRONT

On the professional front, Rawal has a number of intriguing projects in the works, including the Kartik Aaryan-starring Shehzada, the Ayushmann Khurrana-starring Dream Girl 2, and the Hera Pheri 3 movie. He last appeared in Hitesh Bhatia's film Sharmaji Namkeen as the late actor Rishi Kapoor's replacement.
