Mumbai: The row over Dinesh Lal Yadav aka Nirahua starrer Border has intensified. It started after a journalist took potshots at Nirahua over his film Border and the latter expressed his anger over the same.
The Bhojpuri superstar took to his Instagram page to share a video to respond to all those who are threatening to stall the release of his film here.
Nirahua sang a song from the film Border as a response to the threats.
Watch the video embedded below to know what the actor said:
The industry has stood by Nirahua's side and has extended support to him.
After Rani Chatterjee, Sultan Raju Singh Mahi has come out in support of Nirahua.
The journalist has alleged that Nirahua has threatened him. But according to Raju Singh, Nirahua is a very nice person and he must have been extremely hurt and dejected with such undue criticism.
Watch the video below to know what he said.
Nirahua shared an article from a daily and wrote: "Jisko kahte ho tumhare Bhagwan hain unki Aarti gao Hume problem nhi.Mujhe aur meri films ko nicha dikhane ki koshish karoge to isi bhasha me tumko har bar jawab milega.Kyonki tum patrakar nhi PRO ho aur dusron se paisa leke meri burayi karte ho (sic)."
The journalist thanked all those who showed solidarity with him.
He expressed gratitude on his Facebook page.
Nirahua has reportedly lodged a complaint about mental harassment against the reporter with the Oshiwara Police station.
The journalist, however, seems least perturbed by that action that might be taken against him.
Check out what he wrote:
The film written and directed by Santosh Mishra also stars Pravesh Lal Yadav, Shubhi Sharma, Vikrant Singh, Sushil Singh, Awdhesh Mishra, Sanjay Pandey, Aditya Ojha, Gaurav Jha, Vijay Lal Yadav, Vishal Singh, Avinash Dwivedi, Ansuman Rajput, Manoj Tiger, Kajal Yadav, Ananya Mishra, Richa Dixit and Kiran Yadav.
If the reports are anything to go by, Border is Bhojpuri cinema's costliest film. It was shot over a period of 50 days and was completed a day before Chaitra Navratri ended this year.
Interestingly, Bollywood personalities like Rohit Shetty, Ranveer Singh, Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani extended support to this film by asking fans to watch Border.
