Speak to Majid, Sartaj: Aamir Bashir on Saif Ali Khan’s CAA unrest comments
Recently, Saif had told the press that he needs more time to think before aligning himself with the ongoing unrest
Sacred Games star Aamir Bashir isn’t down with co-star Saif Ali Khan’s comments on the anti-CAA protests. Recently, Saif had told the press that he needs more time to think before aligning himself with the ongoing unrest.
“It’s everybody's right to protest peacefully and everybody's right not to. I would like the protest to be associated with exactly what I am protesting against. There might be a possibility that I will end up representing a different kind of protest,” Saif had said. “So I am not sure yet. Until I am sure what I am protesting against and whether it is going to be taken that way, I need to think more.”
Responding to the quote, Aamir, who played Saif’s co-worker Inspector Majid Ali Khan in Sacred Games, tweeted, “Talk to Majid, Sartaj! #NotSacredGames #AntiCAAProtests #NRC_CAA_Protests”
In the show, Saif’s character Sartaj Singh is initially bullied by Majid. However, over the course of the two seasons, they grow a better understanding of each other. Majid’s Muslim identity, too, forms an arc in the final episodes of Season 2.
It looks like the Majid-Sartaj banter from Sacred Games is far from cooling off!
