Actor Paresh Rawal has been summoned by Kolkata Police for his recent statement – “cook fish for Bengalis”. The actor has been asked to present himself on December 12 at the Taltala Police Station on December 12. A complaint was filed against the actor by CPI (M) leader Mohammad Salim over his remark.
Earlier, Rawal apologised on Twitter after receiving backlash on the internet. In a tweet, the actor said, “Of course, the fish is not the issue as Gujaratis do cook and eat fish. But let me clarify by Bengali I meant illegal Bangladeshi N Rohingya. But still, if I have hurt your feelings and sentiments I do apologies (folded hands emoji).”
