Unlike previous times, celebrities these days don’t think twice before putting forth their political views. We’ve got personalities like Swara Bhasker, Richa Chadha, Twinke Khanna, Anupam Kher amongst others, who don’t shy away from making bold statements at all. Now, joining the list is actor Ranvir Shorey, who has slammed Congress President, Rahul Gandhi, and asked him to quit politics along with family.
It all started when Rahul shared a post from the Army Dog Unit where dogs could be seen being trained. He captioned the post as, “New India.” However, Ranvir didn’t seem to be very pleased and the proof of it was his response to the post which read, “Hate much?”
He furthermore expressed his resentment as he wrote, “New India’ will actually be realised when you and your family quit politics.” Now that was one bold statement!
Check out his tweet here:
‘New India’ will actually be realised when you and your family quit politics.

Recently, we have also seen a lot of Bollywood celebrities entering politics and winning elections.
In the political ‘dangal’ of the Lok Sabha elections 2019, a slew of film celebrities including Hema Malini, Sunny Deol, Kirron Kher, Manoj Tiwari, Anubhav Mohanty, Mimi Chakraborty and Nushrat Jahan emerged victoriously.
Bollywood’s action star Sunny Deol, famous for his ‘Dhai kilo ka haath’ dialogue, displayed the weight of his stardom in Gurdaspur in Punjab as he won with 82,459 votes against Sunil Jakhar (Congress).
Actress Kirron Kher, the BJP candidate in Chandigarh, defeated Pawan Kumar Bansal (Congress).
