New Delhi (NVI): A day after foreign celebrities like Rihanna and Greta Thunberg tweeted in support of the farmers protest, several Bollywood superstars including Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan and Kangana Ranaut joined the Centre’s call to stand united against “propagada against India or Indian policies”.

Taking to Twitter, Bollywood star Ajay Devgan said, “Don’t fall for any false propaganda against India or Indian policies. Its important to stand united at this hour w/o any infighting.”

Akshay Kumar also appealed to the people to not pay attention to “anyone” creating differences.

“Farmers constitute an extremely important part of our country. And the efforts being undertaken to resolve their issues are evident. Let’s support an amicable resolution, rather than paying attention to anyone creating differences,” Akshay tweeted.

Bollywood ‘Queen’ Kangana Ranaut also reacted sharply to Rihanna’s tweet: “No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA… Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies.”

The Ministry of External Affairs statement comes a day after international pop icon Rihanna posted a tweet asking why no one is talking about farmers protests in India.

“The temptation of sensationalist social media hashtags and comments, especially when resorted to by celebrities and others, is neither accurate nor responsible,” MEA said in a statement today.

Actor Sunil Shetty also reacted to statements by foreign celebrities on farmers’ protest. “We must always take a comprehensive view of things, as there is nothing more dangerous than half truth,” he tweeted.
