In the Mirzapur web series, actor Ali Fazal, popularized as Guddu Pandit, has posted in support of the farmers’ movement. Ali Fazal has shared a caricature of the Sikh farmer, showing the map of India in red in his eyes. Along with this, Ali Fazal has written the peasant movement on the photo. Ali Fazal has not written a caption with this photo, but it is clear from the picture that he is in support of the farmers movement.
His girlfriend Richa Chadha has also commented on Ali Fazal’s post and described the caricature as a great art. Many users have appreciated Ali Fazal’s post. One user wrote, ‘Guddu Bhaiya, you have won the heart again.’ A user has said in the comment that you are an actor who has a backbone. At the same time, one person has written, ‘Guddu Bhaiya is different from sheep movement.’ Pambaji star Aimee Virk also commented supporting Ali Fazal’s post.
It is clear from Ali Fazal’s post that there is a polarization situation in the entertainment world regarding this movement. On one hand, stars such as Kangana Ranaut to Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan have supported the government’s opinion and instructed foreign celebrities to stay away from the internal issue of India.
On the other hand, there is a section which is supporting the tweets of foreign celebrities like Rihanna, Mia Khalifa and Greta Thunberg. These include stars like Taapsee Pannu, Diljit Dosanjh, Gauhar. Taapsee Pannu has said that if your unity is broken by one tweet. If your religion is weakened by any one show and your faith is hurt by one comment, then you need to strengthen your faith. For others it is necessary to become a Propaganda Teacher, strengthening oneself.
Apart from this, Gauhar Khan, the actor of Tandava web series, has also justified the tweet of foreign celebrities. Gauhar Khan tweeted, ‘#blacklivesmatter … oh this was not the case of India, but all the Indian celebrities tweeted in support of it. It is clear that every life has value… but Indian farmer? Doesn’t their livelihood matter? ‘
