Trolls attack Farhan Akhtar for taking part in Diwali puja with girlfriend Shibani Dandekar | Hindi Movie News - Bollywood - Times of India

Like every other year, and like any other Bollywood celebrity, this year, too, actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar took to his social media accounts to wish his loyal fans and followers a very happy Diwali. It was a sweet gesture and he even shared a picture from the puja which also featured his girlfriend Shibani Dandekar, Ritesh Sidhwani and his wife Dolly Sidhwani. The picture showed Farhan applying tilak on Shibani. However, not long after, the troll army descended and started spewing poison on the comments section of the post. Many of them slammed him for celebrating a Hindu festival when he belongs to a different faith. One wrote, 'Idol worshipping, participated in the idol puja and having a prasadam of puja HARAM (Taboo) in Islam. It's not permissible to practice in the Islam and those were practice of this kind of acts were not Muslims. Allah is unique and there's no god except Allah (SWT).' Another commented, 'Jo allah ka nhi. Hua wo insaano ka kya hoga.' A third asked, 'Are you Muslim?', another said, 'Are a Muslim shame on you.' Yet another netizen wrote, 'You are Muslim and what are you doing.' But there were also those who supported him. A netizen, supporting him, wrote, 'That's Beauty of India, No Matter Which Religion you have. Just Celebrate Everything Before Die, After Die You Have No Religion. Just Forget And Remember Live Life Like Last Day.' Suffice to say, like always, he took the high road and refrained from commenting or reacting to such naysayers. As is known to most, Farhan chooses his battles wisely. While at times, he manages to ward off trolls with his well-worded responses, other times, he prefers to maintain a dignified silence. Meanwhile, on the work front, the filmmaker is all set to direct a road trip film titled 'Jee Le Zaraa', starring Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt. The film is slated to release in 2023.
