Actor Sunish Shetty has been trolled over the tweet opposing the statements of foreign celebrities about the peasant movement. Like many celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, he also tweeted urging his countrymen to avoid propaganda. Twitter users started trolling them on this. Responding to this, Sunil Shetty said that he is also a farmer. Speaking to The Times of India, Sunil Shetty said, ‘I am a farmer myself. My ancestors have also been farmers. We should respect the farmers. Farmers are the backbone of our country. This is a big deal. My statement was completely clear.
Sunil Shetty said that my statement is about people, who have started reacting to it without knowing the whole matter. Sunil Shetty, while appealing to avoid propaganda, wrote, ‘We should see the whole picture. Nothing can be more dangerous than half truth. In fact, foreign celebrities like Rihanna, Mia Khalifa and Greta Thunberg tweeted in support of the farmers movement. On this, the Ministry of External Affairs had instructed foreign celebrities not to name anyone, that they should not interfere in the internal matter. In a statement issued by the ministry, it was said that some selfish elements are engaged in imposing their agenda through this movement.
We must always take a comprehensive view of things, as there is nothing more dangerous than half truth. #IndiaTogether #IndiaAgainstPropaganda @ hiteshjain33 https://t.co/7rNZ683ZAU — Suniel Shetty (@SunielVShetty) February 3, 2021
