Salman Khan’s Jai Ho boycotted in a village in UP by Members of the Youth Initiative for Peace and Harmony (YIPH). Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit had recently attended the Saifai Mahotsav, an extravagant musical event organised by Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.
YIPH said it was a sad thing that such events are being held while the government is doing nothing for victims of the communal riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.
Jasim Mohammad of YIPH said “Mulayam Singh Yadav should not have held the Safai Mahotsava this year and Salman and Madhuri Dixit should have not attended it showing ‘some sensitivity to human values’. We will boycott his upcoming film Jai Ho.”
However, YIPH did not have any qualms about accepting a donation of Rs.25 lakhs from Salman Khan.
