Actor Nana Patekar on Thursday said Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty should have slapped those who hurled racial slurs at her during a TV reality show in Britain and walked out.
"Shilpa should have slapped those who passed the racial remarks against her during the show. "Main hota to chaanta maar deta (if I were in her place, I would have slapped them)," Patekar told reporters in his trademark style here.
He was here to take part in a shooting championship.
"We are actors and people invite us to take part in shows, but that does not give them any right to dishonour us. She should have slapped those passing such remarks and walked out of the show."
Patekar expressed the hope that the organisers of the TV programme would expel those responsible for making the racial slurs.
