came to the limelight through Surabhi, a program hosted in DD. She reached fame with her natural performance as the Bhabi to
in Hum Aapke Hain Koun. The actress has never put her leg back for her comments made in public. She stands to it. We have seen her boldness in Salman Khan’s Raped Woman comment. Now, the daredevil has started her journey again. She had brought the politicians behaviour into the limelight through her Facebook post. Here is the post on her Facebook page:
"Some time lines for people with short term memory only: Feb 3 2008: Mrs Jaya Bachchan asks, "Who is Raj Thakeray?" after MNS targets North Indians in
Sep 8 2008: MNS targets Mr Bachchan for being brand ambassador of UP & setting up a girls school there instead of Maharashtra. Mrs Bachchan makes a sarcastic comment about speaking in Hindi at a music launch of a film. MNS starts a stir against the release of Mr Bachchan's "
The Last Lear
". By that time Mrs Bachchan had come to know who Raj Thakeray was and therefore apologises for her remark.
Cut to Oct 2016: Mr Bachchan receives a personally sketched portrait by Raj Thakeray for his birthday & he gifts a watch to Raj Thakeray's son. Somewhere along the way Mr Bachchan became brand ambassador for Gujarat There were no protests by the MNS Guess Marathi-Gujarati bhai bhai but UP-Marathi not bhai-bhai! Now
Oct 2009: MNS protests use of 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai' in
Wake Up Sid
Karan apologises saying, " It was a genuine mistake on our part. Henceforth we will use Mumbai instead of Bombay" MNS protests withdrawn. Bombay Times was being printed then & now MNS doesn't protest.
Cut to Sep 2016: MNS protests against the casting of a Pakistani actor in "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" in solidarity with the martyred jawaans of the horrendous Uri attack
Flashback 26/11/2008: The dastardly Mumbai attacks. Many civilians killed by Pakistani terrorists Tukaram Ombale martyred while capturing Kasab live. Many defence personnel are martyred. Many Pakistani artists, singers, writers work here & go back.
2nd Jan 2016: Many defence personnel martyred at Pathankot
March 2016: Kapoor & Sons is released & becomes a hit. It has Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in it. MNS does not protest
The present: 18/10/2016: Karan Johar apologises saying he will never cast a Pakistani actor again Exhibitors of single screens still will not show the film Our
says that it is business as usual in the country. Visas will be given to Pakistanis to come here & work. There will be no ban on Pakistani actors on the part of the Central Govt MNS does not protest our Govt's decision. Karan Johar is to meet the Home Minister today. Flash forward: Karan Johar gets a portrait personally sketched by Raj Thakeray? The present again: After winning 3 wars at home, helping to win many in other lands, winning thousands of battles & skirmishes, being martyred in huge numbers, helping in any civil unrests, riots, natural disasters, helping all Indians irrespective of caste, race, language, gender; at last our Army has supposedly reached an International status at par with the Israeli Army that is protecting people of a land approximately 1/4th of our square kilometres and 1/100th of our complexity!!! I thought our Army was always one of the best in the World. Meanwhile the tu tu main main over surgical strikes continue between the Congress & the BJP. The political squabbling & posturing continues. We might as Indian citizens be able to put our differences aside & be able to keep India above Art & Sports but will our politicians be able to keep India above Politics? I don't think so. I don't think they will ever be able to practice what they preach!" She just opines about how hypocritical the politicians are!
