After Naseeruddin Shah allegedly took potshots at Anupam Kher over the latter’s fight for Kashmiri Pandits, Kher hit back at the three-time National award-winning actor, on Twitter

Two of Bollywood’s most respected veteran actors, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher, are allegedly engaged in a war of words over Kashmiri Pandits.

Naseer, a three-time National award-winning actor, on Friday, allegedly took potshots at Kher, who has been vocal about his fight for Kashmiri Pandits, especially their rehabilitation in the Valley, saying, "A person who has never lived in Kashmir has started a fight for Kashmiri Pandits. Suddenly, he became a displaced person."

In response, Kher tweeted, "By that logic, NRIs should not think about India at all". 

Kher also re-tweeted some reactions 

Naseer, however, denied making the statement about Kher, and told ANI that 'this is all misreporting'

Kher too said that he had spoken to Shah to clarify the matter, and said that the latter denied making that statement.
