Actor Nitish Bharadwaj is best known for his iconic role as Lord Krishna in the cult show, Mahabharat that is currently re-running on Doordarshan.
Recently, actor Mukesh Khanna who played Bhishm in Mahabharat and the popular role of Shaktimaan was in news for his comments on actor Sonakshi Sinha where he said that the reruns of these epics will prove helpful for people like her who lack knowledge in mythology. This was further in reference to Sinha's episode in Kaun Banega Crorepati where she was unable to answer a question on Ramayan.
However, Bharadwaj in a recent interview said that he wants to tell Mukesh Khanna that the new generation may not know the details of Indian heritage and literature and that it is not their fault. He further talked about the change in India’s environment after 1992 because of which people started to make their careers for prospering financially. He further states that the previous generation of parents should be blamed instead for not exposing their children to heritage and literature. The actor also blames the myopic education system introduced by the British which has no room for cultural or value-based education.
Bharadwaj then questions the reason behind targeting Sonakshi Sinha all alone. According to him, there is a better way of saying the same thing. He says that a soft, balanced and empathetic way is always received better. In his words, the seniors who walk the path of empathy seem to be worthy of respect. Well, everyone is now awaiting Mukesh Khanna’s response to the same.
