Salman Khan Plays Sikh Cop But Is Silent On Farmers’ Issue, Twitter Calls Him Fake & Maukaparast
The farmers protest in India is getting intense with each passing day as their talks with the government are not bringing any successful result. Many farmers have gathered at the borders of the capital city, Delhi and they are protesting against the new agricultural reforms bill which has been passed by the Modi government sometime back. While the government has reiterated many times that they are ready to talk and make amendments if needed, the farmer leaders have made their stance clear that the protests will not stop until the rollback of the bill is done by the government.
Mainly the farmers of Punjab and Haryana are protesting against this bill and they are getting support from the Sikh community settled abroad as well.
Many Punjabi celebrities such as Diljit Dosanjh, Mika Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Himanshi Khurrana, Gippy Grewal, etc have lend their support to the farmers protest and some Bollywood celebs such as Sonam Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhaskar, Sonu Sood have also raised their voices in support of farmers. However, what has irked many is the fact that the big stars of Bollywood have chosen to remain mum on this matter and they vented out their annoyance and anger by slamming superstar Salman Khan after a clip from Bhaijaan’s upcoming movie went viral on the internet.
The short clip is from the movie, Antim: The Final Truth and it also stars Aayush Sharma in important role and the director of the movie is Mahesh Manjrekar. What made people angry the most is that Salman Khan is playing a Sikh character but he is not speaking on the matter of farmers protest and the new agricultural bill. As per a source, Salman Khan is playing the role of a Sikh police officer who is very strict and doesn’t let any illegal activity being carried out in his area.
Here is the short clip from the movie:

Soon, the twitterati got berserk and slammed Salman Khan and his colleagues for making money by playing Sikh characters but not speaking a word when so many Sikh farmers from Punjab are protesting on the Delhi border in open, that too in winter season.
Here are some selected tweets:
If he’s not supporting farmers then we should not promote his movies and should boycott his movies. Now Bollywood actors have shown their true colours. If they don’t hav guts to stand with farmers then we shouldn’t support them.

If only Bollywood could actually hire a real-life Sardar for a leading male role. Although the imagery is powerful, it's pathetically performative and the timing is super insensitive. Personally, this shouldn't warrant any praise. It's no different than Blackface.

I find majority of these top heros with no spine ripping off punjabi culture to make money. No one cares about them anymore. Get a real sikh to play a role someone who can act -Daljit. 🙏
