When you're high profile, people have fun pulling you down, throwing muck at you. If you're a nobody, then who has the time to throw stones at you?"
Meanwhile, apart from Javed Akhtar many popular names like Pooja Bedi, Suniel Shetty, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Pooja Bhatt and more have spoken about the same.
