He further claimed that in Bollywood not a single celeb is a true patriot. Without naming the celebs, he explained his point and said, "A husband will say something and the wife will make fun of it in parliament. If one is offering prayres at Ram Mandir, Ayodhya, the wife’s political party doesn’t support it and badmouths it. That’s why I say that don’t force someone to be a patriot, I have lost a lot of things because of it). Now I am what I am. I will only sing and entertain people.”
