Lokesh Yadav: This people are trying to make all women sluts. Just tell me who wants his mother, sister or wife to be such a whore? I think this RGV asshole should be assassinated.
Shanoj Subramanian: Theek hai America me porn legal hai aur pornstars ko jee bhar ke paise bhi milte hain lekin ye bhi dekho ki pornstars ya porn artists ke saath wahaan professionally kaisa sulook kiya jaata hai aur woh personally kaisa feel karte hain uss baare mein. I mean jis tarah RGV pornography ko itna glorify kar rahe hain toh I think he should also put some light on how pornstars or porn artists lead their life there. There are so many pornstars who die due to STDs or heavy intake of drugs and more are living on the edge right now. There are so many of them who get into this profession just to prove a point to the society and are then seen messed up about it. Itna sukoon bhi nahi hai iss profession mein. Koi pride wali baat bhi nahi hai. Agar hota toh khud SunnyLeone porn chhorhkar bollywood nahin aati.
