As ludicrous as it may sound, but popular comedian Sunil Grover has penned an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to get an interview with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. And, this request is not out of the blue as the actor is gearing up for the release of his next, Coffee with D, where he plays a journalist wanting to interview Dawood. Blame promotions for the antic.
The letter which starts with an elaborate praise of Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign and initiative of demonetization goes on to demand a sit-down with Dawood, who the Indian government has been trying to bring back to India for a long time now.
“While we bask in the positive aftermath of your thoughtful initiatives, there is a small grouse that we continue to harbour. An unresolved issue that still invokes a sense of fear, anger and morbid anxiety into a population which is otherwise ready to move on and make good on their dreams in India 2.0,” Sunil writes.
