Is It Fair to Call Out Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan for ‘Supporting’ Modi?

What are your thoughts?

Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan

Sometimes you aint got a choice. Like Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan’s meeting and supporting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently. Many tweeps, especially in Pakistan, are still calling them out for meeting the Butcher of Gujrat.

Previously Bollywood’s House of Khans was criticized for staying silent on the reigning Bhartiya Janata Party’s (BJP) divisive brand of ethno-politics. Now they’re being lambasted for coming out in support of BJP and it’s ruling Premier Narendra Modi.

The Bollywood celebrities were no alone in supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s latest initiative centered on film and soft power called ‘Change Within’. The project aims to produce film and television shows that popularize Mahatma Gandhi and his ideologies.

Much like when Priyanka Chopra condoned the Indian lockdown in Kashmir, netizens are outraged over the Bollywood openly supporting an oppressor like Modi.

To be fair, they don’t have a choice

Plenty of Twitterati understand that during a time when Indians are being canceled over ‘anti-nationalist’ allegations, Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan don’t have much of a choice but to play along.

While both Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan have stayed silent on Indian politics for the longest time, why come out in support now? The answer is right there in the question:

 

Even amidst PM Modi’s advocacy for mass killings of Muslims, Bollywood’s Muslim minority lives in fear. We’re still wondering how Salman Khan came out unscathed. Oh wait, he did fire Navjot Sidhu from The Kapil Sharma Show.

Recently he had to cancel a soundtrack with Mika Singh.

Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan also faced a fair deal of backlash whenever they tried to raise their voice against the BJP regime.
