Not very well known writer Shobha De has vent out her anger against A graders of Bollywood like SRK, Saif, Hrithik, Akshay and Salman as they chose to keep quiet on the Mumbai terror issue.
She writes in her Facebook article, “I read ‘Shah Rukh Khan’s on BBC Asia’ (reported in a local tabloid) with a great deal of disappointment. The report begins by quoting him stating, “I tried to keep away from commenting on all this…” He later goes on to say, “Youngsters need to understand Islam and respect the religion in the right way….” Yes, Shah Rukh! You are not telling your fans something they don’t know! Also, “……..no agenda should be attached to any kind of religion.” Thank you SRK, for stating the obvious. And for being so very politically correct…. non-committal ….during the most violent attack on Mumbai – the very city that has made you. I wanted to hear some words of comfort for those who died; some strong condemnation of those who committed this crime. This report made no mention of any such thing. And it was the only published comment from SRK to date.”
The writer who is known to write gibberish in a fiesty way says, “SRK is no ordinary Bollywood star. Others from his fraternity have spoken up boldly. Why such a wishy-washy response from The KingBadshah etc etc?? This is the time for people like him, Sachin Tendulkar and others who preen away as ‘National Icons’ at other times, to stand up and be counted. Look at RGV’s arrogant and offensive stance even today – boycott his lousy films and teach him a lesson. The Taj is not a potential movie set he needed to study for art direction! Most of the filmwallas owe something to someone sitting in Dubai.
“No wonder they have been so cautious and guarded in their response. Cowards! All they can think of are overseas’ box office returns (they make the most money in those markets). Dhanda has silenced their conscience. Amitabh(the same man who helped her sell her lousy novel by unveiling it.) sleeps with a gun under his pillow, and then says it is a symbolic act! Aamir weighs his words with care. Salman stays chhhup (just as well). Akshay, Hrithik, Saif…… lost your voices all of a sudden??”
Well you are doing the same Shobhaa madam, instead of gaining publicity by blasting others you can do something good by actually doing something instead of just writing and blaming. Just writing and speaking boldly about the attacks in papers and blogs is not inspiring and helping anybody, if you really wanna be bold step out from your lousy homes and work for the betterment of the country.
What do you think folks?
