Pune: Asserting that there are some slogans that people should feel proud when chanting, veteran actor Anupam Kher today wondered why some issues, which were never discussed in the last 60 years, like 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' slogan issue, are being raked up and debated now.

"There are some slogans with which we are born and we die and one should feel proud while raising these slogans," Kher said amid chants of 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.

He was speaking at a global summit and trade fair, organised by Jain International Trade Orgnization 'JITO Connect 2016'.

"Do not pay attention to the people, who have been disputing over the issue and if they are on the TV channels, turn off the television or switch to Doordarshan, because they show real news," the Padma Bhushan awardee said.

"There are some issues which were never raised in the last 60 years, but now there are a few like chanting of 'Bharat mata ki Jai' that are being raked up and debated," he added.

In a veiled attack on AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi, he said, "Some people say that they will not chant the slogan as it is not written in the Constitution, but I feel proud when I raise these slogans."

The actor said, "I did not receive such respect while doing 498 movies, which I have been receiving in last few months through my speeches and this is because whatever I am speaking is coming from the bottom of my heart."
