"Yesterday, I filed police complaint at Khar Police Station against Bollywood's renowned ‘Ek Thi Kabootar' Ekta Kapoor. I have been getting so many phone calls from yesterday as if Ekta Kapoor runs their houshold and sends them ration. Bade bade log call kar rahe hain (big people are calling me). They want me to sit and talk with them. But I don't want to sit and talk with anybody. I want her to apologise to the Indian Army because she and her mother have insulted the Indian Army," Hindustani Bhau said in Hindi.
He further stated that nobody can buy him with money and people making such requests should feel ashamed.
