The three Bollywood Khans, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move declaring Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes as illegal tenders. The three actors have a mass fan following and their views and public comments often create headlines. Now that they have spoken on such a big issue, it’s quite important to take note of what they have said.
Here’s what the the three Khans said about PM Modi’s decision.
“It is more important to agree with what is good for nation. We should not see it’s short term impact. What is necessary for the country needs to be done. If my film is getting affected, it is a small thing,” IANS quoted the actor as saying during launch of a song from his film Dangal.

“Farsighted. Extremely smart. And not politically motivated. Will bring such a positive change for Indian economy. Great move @narendramodi,” Tweeted Shah Rukh Khan.
The Dabangg Khan of Bollywood made a comment which suits his personna. He said: “Iss hafte kaale dhan par dhanaadan vaar padi. It is a fantastic move and hats off to Modi ji.” Salman made these comments while speaking to Bigg Biss season 10.
In a major attempt to curb circulation of black money and corruption, PM Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. However, the move is getting mixed response from the general public. While most of the political parties have been criticising the move for inconvenience caused to general public.
