Rohit Shetty on Delhi riots 

Asked about his reaction to the Delhi riots, the director said the best thing at this time would be to stay quiet. "It's a very serious issue and a lot of people are talking about it. The best thing right now for all of us would be to stay calm. Our officials, the government, our people are there... It's easy to talk about what people have gone through there while doing an event here. So the best thing, right now, for entire India would be to stay silent.

"Everyone's been talking and the chaos is increasing. If we stay quiet, things will fall in place. There's a chief minister, others are there. Has anyone seen riots? You'll be really scared. One should never engage in it. I can give a lecture, people will praise me on social media. But right now, we all should stay silent about it for a few days... Until it is sorted, let's us not speak."
