Salman Issue: Bollywood gets creative

with 2 comments

bollywood.jpgBollywood has been caught in a dilemma. Their track record of taking high moral ground has come back to haunt them. They can’t speak against Salman. It would hurt their financial interests. They didn’t say anything against Salman on hit and run and invisible man. However they have spoken when similar things were done by politicians. They spoke when similar things were done outside their Bollywood and social circle. They were chatty on social media and in press conferences. They are chatty no more.

They have decided to get creative on this issue. They have to interact with media on daily basis and when the question is posed, they have to say something. So below is the compilation of the creativity of Bollywood on this issue.

1. shahrukh.jpgShahrukh Khan: “I myself speak such a lot (inappropriately), Who am I to judge him on this? Personally speaking, I don’t think I am anyone to comment on this. I am so inappropriate myself. I have said some really wrong things also”

2.varun.jpg Varun Dhawan: “I do not want to join anyone’s agenda to further the controversy; I am close enough to Salman to tell him my view point in person. When one knows someone personally, why would they say anything publicly about them?”

3. nagmaNagma: “There was No way he meant it the way it sounded. He should not have made this comment in public”

4. subhashSubhash Ghai: “It is very disgusting translation by someone. He just said one thing that it is a human agony he went through. He was talking about a metaphor. He is just a child and I know he respects women like anything.”

5. priyankaPriyanka Chopra: “First of all, you should be asking the person who made this comment. A lot has been said about the Salman issue. I don’t want to add to the noise. I would rather bring notice on real women issues.”

6. rakhi.jpgRakhi Sawant: “I promise you that Salman Khan hasn’t said anything like this. Salman has only done the lip movements while somebody else has dubbed on it.”

7. vikram.jpgVikram Bhatt: Silence. Was disgusted with KRK for anti-women remarks. Now he says this, “Salman Khan makes one comment and the whole world chases him, What about KRK? He will perpetuate lies and continue to do so”

8. pulkit.jpgPulkit Samrat: “Actors usually remain unaffected with controversies. As an individual, it also teaches you how to be strong and bounce back. Salman Khan is the biggest example of being strong and truthful. He has always bounced back.”

9. nawazuddin.jpgNawazuddin Siddiqui:He used the comment metaphorically. The discussions on it are over and there is no point in repeating it and asking questions about it.”

10. aamir.jpgAamir Khan: Silence. He was earlier hurt by intolerance. But when he himself used ‘balatkar’ for comedy in 3 Idiots. What else can we expect from him?

11. anushka.jpgAnushka Sharma: Silence. To her twitter trollers were misogynists, but sees no wrong in her Sultan co-star.

12. deepika.jpgDeepika Padukone: Silence. Times of India, cleavage controversy was bad. But now nothing.

13. kalki.jpgKalki Koechlin: Silence. Nothing from women abuse crusader.

14. farhan.jpgFarhan Akhtar: Silence. Mard Farhan shared stage with him during IIFA.

15. karanKaran Johar: Silence. Was deeply hurt when Udta Punjab was censored. Attends IIFA with Salman.

16. mouniMouni Roy: ‘Naagin’ of small screen said this, “Every girl wishes to debut with Salman Khan”
