When the makers and stars of the much-anticipated Raabta came for its trailer launch, little did they know that the event would make headlines for a spat with a journalist over the most topical national issue, but not related to the film. At the trailer launch of Raabta, which also saw the presence of actors Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput, a senior journalist got into an argument with the film’s team including the lead. The reason? Well, they refused to comment on Kulbhushan Jadhav issue wherein a Pakistan military court recently awarded death sentence to him after he was convicted of "espionage and sabotage activities".

On being asked for his reaction to the Jadhav controversy, Rajput said, “One can condemn or not if one knows the issue inside out. Why is it important for a public figure expected to know every issue?”

When asked for his reaction on the ongoing fairness cream debate and nepotism, he said, “As responsible citizen we should not endorse a tone of skin color.”

For the uninitiated, on April 12, Abhay Deol took to his Facebook account to slam Bollywood actors’ endorsement of fairness creams. From Shah Rukh Khan to Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, he targeted everyone for endorsing fair skin colour.

Among other Bollywood actors who had reacted to Pakistan military court's decision awarding death sentence to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav has been Richa Chadha.

"A person gets trapped in the politics between two governments. In such times, it's that person and his family who are the biggest casualty," Richa was quoted as saying in a recent interview.
