Ahead of the release of his film ‘Tubelight’, actor Salman Khan is busy with promotions and has been participating in various media events. However, at a recent press conference, it wasn’t Khan but his youngest co-actor, 8-year-old Matin Rey Tangu, who stole the show and our hearts with his innocent comments.

We are not trying to start any racial debate here, but time and again people from the North East are made to feel that they aren’t a part of India. Recently, Matin too found himself at the center of such discussions and taught the much-needed general knowledge lessons to even the adults. Matin who hails from Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh, was asked by a reporter whether he has come to India for the first time. Matin who looked clearly confused by this question asked the reporter to ask the question again. After Salman explained the question to him, he understood what the question really meant and answered the same in an innocent yet the most badass manner.
Matin said, “Hum India par hi rehte hai to India par aege hi kaise?” (I live in India, so how will I come to India?”) This one line has won our hearts and now all we can wish for is a society where one does not get racially discriminated. The audience was smitten by his answer and start applauding him. Set in the 1962 Sino-Indian war, Kabir Khan’s directorial venture is releasing on June 23rd. It also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and Sohail Khan.
