Akshay Kumar’s Old Video Dissing ‘Money-Wasting’ Hindu Rituals Go Viral; Twitterati Calls Out Superstar’s Double-Standards After His Recent Plea for Ram Mandir Donation Drive

, like some of his peers, has always been a strange example of paradoxes. While the actor and his movies preach patriotism and nationalism, the superstar himself is a Canadian citizen by choice. Recently, Akshay once again became a example of self-paradox when an old video of his went viral. In the throwback video, Akshay Kumar, speaking in Marathi, is seen dissing Hindu worship rituals and asking why so much money is being wasted on such things, when it could be put to better use. Akshay Kumar Donates for Ram Temple Construction in Ayodhya, Urges Fans to Contribute for the Massive Donation Drive (Watch Video).

The clip is taken from an old video from the chat show Maza Katta from ABP Majha. In the video, Akshay Kumar talks about the importance of charity. In the conversation, Akshay raises his own film, 2008’s OMG: Oh My God!, that has a critical view of religious malpractices. He asks what’s the need for wasting oil on Hanuman’s statues and breaking coconuts in temples, when you can use that money for the betterment of the society.

You can watch the whole interview here:

If you watch the whole interview, you would be surprised by Akshay’s liberal views. Like, he is talking a lot about farmer’s welfare and worries over the increase in farmer suicides. So those who are accusing the superstar for not speaking up about the ongoing farmers’ protests, all you need to do is go back in time (this interview was before Rustom released). He also talked that he is of the belief that women should be allowed in Shani Shingnapur, a temple that once banned female devotees, till a landmark Bombay High Court decision overturned the ages-old tradition. After Accepting to Be a Canadian Citizen, Akshay Kumar’s Old Video Calling ‘Toronto Is My Home’ Goes Viral.

Well, years seems to have changed the National Award winner, who recently put out a video where he says he is contributing towards donation drive in Ayodhya, and requests his fans to do the same.

After the earlier clip went viral, Twitterati has been calling out the double standards of Akshay.

Sentiments Expressed in This Video Make More Sense

Time (and Governments) Can Change People

Real Tandav?

Hmmm…

Okay, What’s ‘Amajon’ Now?

If Only…

Technically, He Isn’t An NRI…

Wonder what reasoning Akshay Kumar would come up with after seeing this old video of his. Also wondering, if he still stands up his film OMG: Oh My God! that would have bound to cause controversies in present times (though it actually shows Hinduism in a positive light), like Tandav. Just wondering… BTW, Akshay is making a film on Ram Setu so that could be an inspiration for the attitudinal change.

The Girl On The Train: Parineeti Chopra’s Suspense Thriller On Netflix Gets A Mixed Reaction From Twitterati

Published

Paula Hawkin’s bestselling novel The Girl On The Train got an Indian big-screen adaptation with Parineeti Chopra playing the protagonist. Its Hollywood counterpart had Emily Blunt in the lead. The Hindi movie started streaming on Netflix yesterday and now we have reactions from people on Twitter.  The suspense thriller didn’t really get raving reviews from the critics either and now, viewers seem to have a similar response to the movie. The Girl on the Train Movie Review: Parineeti Chopra’s Netflix Thriller Is a Shallow Remake With a Surprise End-Twist (Onhike Exclusive)

While many appreciated Parineeti’s hard-work and Aditi Rao Hydari’s work in the film, overall, it has failed to please many.  Some couldn’t even believe if this even needed a Hindi film adaptation. There are also some who took this opportunity to spin some memes and pun on the title of the film.

Check out the Twitter review of The Girl On The Train here

What a ride

Great Parineeti, Average direction

Expectation Vs Reality

Sad copy of original

A Must-Watch

Boring and Bad

And here comes the joke…

The Girl On The Train is directed by Ribhu Dasgupta and has Parineeti Chopra, Aditi Rao Hydari and Avinash Tiwari in the cast. The movie is about an alcoholic divorcee who takes a train after being embroiled in a murder investigation. Her unhealthy obsession with Nushrat (Aditi Rao Hydari) makes her quite sinister.

Anurag Kashyap’s Daughter Aaliyah Receives Rape Threats After Posting A Picture In A Lingerie, Says ‘I Considered Deleting Instagram’

Published

Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah Kashyap on Friday said that she has been targeted by many Instagram users with “degrading and disgusting” comments after she posted her picture in lingerie. Aaliyah, who has over 20,000 followers on Instagram, said she is “frightened” by the remarks that she has been subjected to in the past few weeks. She had posted a picture of herself late last month promoting a lingerie brand and was subsequently flooded with messages that pushed her to contemplate deleting her page on the photo-video sharing website. Dobaaraa: Taapsee Pannu Begins Filming for Anurag Kashyap’s Next, Actress Shares BTS Pic from the Film Sets

“The past few weeks have been really hard on my mental health. Ever since I posted a photo of me in lingerie, I have been getting the most vilest, degrading and disgusting comments. I have never felt more frightened than I have in the past few weeks to the point where I considered deleting my Instagram,” she wrote in a lengthy statement.

Aaliyah said she initially tried to ignore the social media harassment but felt there was a need to share her experience as such comments “contribute to the rape culture”.

Check Aaliyah’s Instagram post here

“We seem to be a country that will hold candle marches for a woman after she’s been sexually assaulted but won’t protect a woman while she’s alive. And the truth is that women in India grow up being sexualized their whole lives. I have grown up with these kinds of comments to the point where it culminated into me being sexually assaulted as a minor by a middle-aged man,” she added.

Attaching the screenshots of vitriol-filled comments on her post, she wrote, “They are the same men that are fine with following me and consuming the content I post, yet choose to harass me. If you truly disagree with what I post, then you are free to unfollow me. Nothing I do or post is an invitation for sexual assault.”

Aaliyah, who lives in California, US, said instead of asking women to keep a check on their clothes, it is important to “unteach men the predatory behaviour that has been normalised in our society.” “This is my body, my life and I choose what I want to do with it,” she concluded.

This is not the first time Aaliyah has been subjected to such remarks. In May 2019, her filmmaker father had said that she had received a rape threat from a social media user. He had later lodged an FIR. The director is currently working on his new age thriller Dobaara, starring Taapsee Pannu.

It was certainly a chic appearance and Janhvi nailed it with her charming persona. The Dhadak actress had paired her outfit with nude lips and hoop earrings. She kept her makeup subtle with highlighted cheeks, winged eyeliner, creamy pink lipstick and curled eyelashes.
