Here are top ten quotes from her interview:

  1. “I don’t agree with those returning awards. I don’t think that returning the award is going to solve the purpose. Protest, in the way they have decided to do, is their their free, democratic right. We are a tolerant nation. Everyone has the right to do what they are doing and the right to say what they are saying these days.”
  2. “Award wapsi is politically motivated.”
  3. “My film Shool got the award for the best film. Daman got the award for me for playing the role against domestic violence. But everybody worked towards that award. There was a certain jury that handed that award. The whole team, unit put in their hard toil, sweat to that film… As a person, I will not return the National Award because I will be demeaning the rest of the award winners, making that award worthless. There are other forms of protest.”
  4. “I will not return the National Award because I will be demeaning the rest of the award winners, making that award worthless. There are other forms of protest.”
  5. “I haven’t taken the decision Anupam Kher’s anti-Award Wapsi rally on November 7. But if need be, I might as well just do that.”
  6. “You can’t call the whole nation intolerant for a few unfortunate incident. Tell me one year when unfortunate incidents like Dadri, Kalburgi and others, have not happened.”
  7. “It’s completely wrong what was said on Shah Rukh Khan. He is not anti-national.”
  8. “Extreme intolerance has existed at all times, and previous governments have also banned films.”
