The Saifai Mahotsav that is being held in UP by the cheif minister Akhilesh Yadav has been causing a lot of people to protest for the reason that the celebrities were all dancing away with no responsibility as the Muzaffarnagar riot victims victims froze to death. While Madhuri Dixit, Salman Khan and some other stars did not regret performing at the Saifai Mahotsav, and have supported themselves, Mahesh Bhatt and Sunil Grover were two actors who came out and apologized for performing there.
Alia Bhatt was one of the participants at Saifai and hence, Mahesh Bhatt talked about how he is regretful about his daughter’s performance at the event on twitter. This is what Mahesh tweeted, “I claim to be very socio-politically conscious. I should have stopped her.” He added saying that, “She told me where she was going. But it did not cross my mind that she is going to a state where a tragedy is still unresolved. But I must admit the moral responsibility was of the Chief Minister to anticipate the backlash.”
Sunil Grover, who was one of the performers at the event also apologized saying that he did not realize that what he was doing wasn’t right. “I never dreamt there would be so much criticism. While agreeing to appear on stage, the other factors did not cross my mind at all. Hum toh artiste hain…jahaan bulayen hum chalen jaayen, Lekin humein sochna chahiye tha” was what he said.
