Imran Khan, who is leading from the front against the raise of drinking age bar by the state government, has urged the bollywood fraternity and his fans to support him in his cause.
Talking to the media about his cause, Imran said, 'I think raising the drinking age is an attack on personal freedom. When we are allowed to have kids at 21 years and die fighting for the nation, why raise the drinking age. I also believe that drinking does not affect a particular age group alone. Any one above 25 can also abuse their drinks. I have decided to approach the courts regarding this issue and will accept whatever verdict is delivered.'
In reply to a question about support from bollywood actors, especially Ranbir Kapoor, Imran added, 'I would love to have Ranbir's support in this cause. For that matter I would want all the actors, politicians and other people in positions of influence to support this cause.'
Imran is the only actor who has come forward to file a PIL against the state government's decision.
