It’s time Gandhis start performing in movies,” Vivek Agnihotri said in response to Priyanka Gandhi’s statement
Congress Leader Priyanka Gandhi recently addressed the Sankalp Satyagraha at Delhi’s Mahatma Gandhi memorial, Rajghat. It was a demonstration against Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha after his conviction in a defamation case in 2019. She talked about the hardships endured by her family.
During her address, Priyanka had remarked, “My family’s blood has ploughed democracy in this country.” Whatever it takes, we will fight for democracy in this country. Our nation’s democracy was built on the shoulders of great men and women who served in Congress.
She continued by saying that her family had stayed silent in the face of insults for a long time, but that would change now. How much will you offend one person?” Priyanka asked. Is it true that Lord Ram, when banished, was a parivaarwadi?
‘Director Vivek Agnihotri of The Kashmir Files tweeted in response to this clip, “Family… family…. Family… What the heck have you done? I think it’s high time Gandhis started appearing in Karan Johar movies, what with the whole “family se itna fake pyaar hai” thing. At the very least, the family ecology needs to be karega-like. How do you know that KJo won’t let you down?
He continued his tweet with the phrase, “Victim card is the first and last defense of the entitled.”
Vivek recently addressed claims about his closeness to the BJP and Narendra Modi at the TimesLit Fest. A lot of people in Bollywood don’t like me, he remarked, since “you support Modi.” They believe my films are too political. However, I’m curious as to when it was that Bollywood actors and actresses stopped being friends with politicians. Isn’t it true that Amitabh Bachchan was Rajeev Gandhi’s best friend? Isn’t he, Mr. Khan, Priyanka and Sonia Gandhi’s best friend? These rumors circulate freely about me, yet I dare you to identify a famous actor or director who is not best friends with the persons mentioned above. But they keep it under wraps. During the Narmada protests, didn’t Aamir Khan join Medha Patkar? Didn’t he have political ties? What makes me different from everyone else?
