ऐसा नहीं है कि अनुपम खेर ने आज से 7-8 साल पहले हिन्दू मुस्लिम समानता वाला कोई एकाध ट्वीट ग़लती से कर दिया हो। बहुत से ऐसे ट्वीट्स हैं जो उनके तब के सेकुलर विचारधारा को बताते हैं। पटकथा में परिवर्तन तो बाद में शुरू हुआ। वैसे दिमाग़ी चिप में बदलाव पर एक बेहतरीन फ़िल्म बन सकती है! pic.twitter.com/XE4pfkKeu8— Umashankar Singh उमाशंकर सिंह (@umashankarsingh) March 15, 2022
