Veteran actor Paresh Rawal said he felt frustrated by corruption and sometimes felt like picking up a gun. Paresh was speaking after a felicitation in Pune Tuesday night where he was honored by the Pu.La. Smruti Sanmaan at the ongoing five-day 10th Pulotsav Marathi festival.
"Sometimes, I want to become a Naxalite, take a gun and shoot these politicians. They are third-rate, shameless people without any morality," Paresh said. He blasted that people who don't have money feel the hardships "What about the plight of the common man? How will they even manage to survive?" He said that every time he reads in the newspapers of scams worth thousands and lakhs of crores of rupees, he wonders whether India is really a poor country.
