“Under normal circumstances, I’d have ignored these comments. But my wife and family feel the gentleman has crossed the line of decency. It’s one thing for him to criticise my work and films, totally something else to make such derogatory personal remarks…My lawyer is looking at the strongest possible legal action against Mr Seth. He needs to be told that there is a difference between constructive criticism which I am all for, and vilification,” DNA quoted Nihalani as saying.
