Maharashtra has raised the drinking age to 25. Actor Imran Khan (the Indian one) has the balls to stand up and file a PIL against the government:

The actor said that more than 60% of the population is below 25. “When one gets the right to vote at 18 and elect a government and even marry and have children at the age 21, to ban drinking for people below the age of 25 is ridiculous,” said Khan.

While the actor personally does not endorse drinking, he said, “I feel everyone has the right to choose and that is the reason why I have decided to take this step. I don’t think it should be imposed upon the youth. This kind of regulation is bound to turn the youth into outlaws.”

Could that be said any better?
