He has also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi and I & B Minister Smriti Irani to break their silence on the entire controversy. Sinha was recently spotted at the event which was organized by Karni Sena, he slammed Bhansali for organizing a special screening for media before getting the film certified from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
