Gorakhpur, Mar 9: After Bollywood actor Anupam Kher said that 'people like Yogi Adityanath and Sadhvi Prachi should be put behind bars,' Adityanath has lashed out against the veteran actor calling him a 'villain in real life'.
Adityanath hit out at Kher and said: "Everyone knows about the character of a villain. Kher is not only a reel life villain, but also in real life. I don't want to say anything more on his statement made in Kolkata."
Adityanath's comments come after Kher said at an event that there are some people in the party (BJP) who speak nonsense and ill-behave, "Whether it is Sadhvi or Yogi... they should be put behind bars, thrown out of the party,' Kher said.
Kher was speaking in Kolkata at the Telegraph National Debate on intolerance on Saturday, Mar 5.
Yogi Adityanath and Sadhvi Prachi have earlier sparked controversies with their remarks. Adityanath had recently compared Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan to the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks Hafiz Saeed.
He had said there is no difference between the language of Shah Rukh Khan and Hafiz Saeed.
