Raees ride: As the Raees journey by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan became bitter with the death of a man at Gujarat’s Vadodara railway station, the Bharatiya Jananta Party (BJP) national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, today, targetted SRK, taunting that there would rush at the stations even if Dawood Ibrahim comes at public.
In a desperate attempt to make the Rahul Dholakia directorial ‘Raees’ reach maximum number of fans, the 51-year old actor, yesterday, took the Kranti Rajdhani Express from Mumbai to reach Delhi, in an attempt to gain maximum mileage.
Criticizing SRK’s movie promotion, Vijayvargiya took to twitter to praise Prime Minister Narendra Modi and hit out at Rahul Gandhi using the titles of two upcoming Bollywood films, saying our country’s ‘Kaabil’ is better than the ‘Raees’ of other country, apparently referring to the Congress vice president’s foreign roots.

“There is a new tradition of promoting films. The promoters should at least take care of public convenience. If they promote films in railways, the common people will suffer.Even if Dawood appears in public, crowd will come out. So we cannot gauge the popularity (of people), at least, on the basis of crowd,” Vijayvargiya, also a Madhya Pradesh Minister, said.
Later, he posted a photograph on twitter, saying “The ‘Raees’ who is not of his country, he is of no use. One should stand with a ‘Kaabil’ (worthy) patriot. It is now the turn of Kaabil’ people of the country whose rights cannot be taken away by any dishonest ‘Raees’ (wealthy)”.
In another tweet, which was accompanied by a photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi, with his torn ‘kurta’, he said,”If someone is ‘Kaabil’, a tea seller can also become a Prime Minister, otherwise a ‘Raees’, who has been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, also wears a torn kurta.”
When asked about his earlier tweet supporting Kaabil, which stars Hritik Roshan, Vijayvargiya said, “Those for whomthe message was meant have undersood”.
