Mumbai: Bollywood actor Imran Khan is one of the many who feel that India’s legal proceedings lack pace. According to Imran the judiciary must find a way out so that cases are dealt in a speedy manner.

The actor had filed a Public Interest Litigation this September in the Bombay High Court against Government of Maharatshtra’s decision to raise the age limit for alcohol consumption from 21 to 25.

Talking to a daily, Imran said, “It’s around two months now but I haven’t heard from
Court yet. You know how slow the legal system of India is. I don’t know when I will get the date of the first hearing or even how long it will take to get a verdict on the case.”

The young man is waiting earnestly to hear something on his petition.

“I have learnt that PIL hearings are held on Thursdays. Let’s see when my turn comes.”

Imran happens to be a US citizen but had filed a PIL under the RTI. He is determined to maintain his stance and will do everything possible to ensure a hearing on the PIL that he has filed.

“I will not let it go. My lawyers are working on it. Sooner or later, there has to be some hearing on the PIL that I have filed,” said the actor.
