Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi organized a meet-up and invited big names from Bollywood to the event.
According to media sources, the purpose of inviting the internationally acclaimed artists is to promote Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism through entertainment industry.
The event was organized on the account of Gandhi’s 150 birth anniversary.
Filmmakers along with super stars of the Indian industry were seen smiling and clicking photos including Aamir khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Jacqueline Fernandes, Ekta Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and many more.
However, the fans, on this side of the border, are not pleased with actors taking part in Modi’s initiative. They questioned the actor’s stance on ever increasing challenges between the two countries.
I have scoffed at, condescended to, and lectured people for so much as uttering a word about Bollywood. It is low art. It is an assault on one’s intelligence and refinement.
It is also a vehicle for India’s colonial project in Kashmir, its rabid jingoism, and Hindutva fascism. pic.twitter.com/BDTzokNDGs

I knew SRK was a sellout but seeing Aamir Khan here as well broke my heart in half. https://t.co/9u0RwsVEM1

The same SRK and Aamir Khan who were abused and asked to go to Pakistan not too long ago have now become ‘the pride of India’ for the RW.
How cute! https://t.co/9g79LA07F3
