Web Desk: Akshay Kumar is a Bollywood superstar who was trolled badly after an old video of him in which he claims his films work best in Pakistan resurfaced recently.
His video doing rounds on Twitter in which he says, “Pakistan main meri film sabse zaada business karti hain. Jitna pyaar wahan se milta hai, shayad hi kahin se milta hai! (My films work best in Pakistan. The love I get from this country is more than any other place!)
In the video, Kumar talks about the immense love that his movies receive from Pakistan. The statement didn’t go down well with few who trolled Kumar over it.
Social media users trolled him so badly. A user said, “if any of the Khans (Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan) had said it, there would have been instant repercussions and their hashtags of being anti-national would have trended on Twitter for days.”
Another one said that the right-wing groups would have instantly pounced on the actor if he was a Muslim.”
It is in Kumar’s nature to be courteous towards the crowd he is addressing. To say that he should be kicked out of India for promoting peace is disgraceful and anti-humanity.
Have a look at the comments.
Been a fan of @akshaykumar since I was a teenager; back when political leanings didn’t interfere in my liking of individuals. I still adore him but it’s sad to see how he’s been helping to further party propaganda. Also it’s high time he clarifies the mystery of his nationality.
