Shahid Kapoor, who had tasted success with controversial film ‘Udta Punjab’, has reportedly featured on the poster for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s event. Trump addressed thousands of Hindus in northern New Jersey recently during a Bollywood-themed charity event titled ‘Humanity United Against Terror’. The US presidential candidate was the chief guest at the event. Interestingly, Kapoor featured on the poster for the event. But it is not clear whether or not Shahid was invited as a guest, according to a report. His photograph may have been used to grab attention and he may have had nothing to do with the event.
The report said that choreographer-turned-filmmaker Prabhu Dheva, Malaika Arora Khan and Ameesha Patel performed at the event. Spiritual Guru and Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was also one of the attendees, it was reported in TOI.
Over 5,000 people, including the elderly and children, attended the nearly 5-hour event organised by the Republican Hindu Coalition, founded and chaired by Indian-American industrialist Shalabh Kumar, Chairman and CEO of the AVG Group of Companies, a PTI report said.
Bollywood music and performances by artistes preceded the nearly 13-minute appearance by Trump at the event yesterday at the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center.
The event, focused on the theme of ‘Humanity Against Terror’, was rich in Indian entertainment, with celebrities Prabhu Deva, Shriya Saran and Sophie Chaudhry enthralling the audience with their performance.
The event began with a video of actor Anupam Kher who spoke about the plight of the Kashmiri Pandits who were forced to flee their homeland. The event was organised with a special focus on the Kashmiri Pandit terror victims and the Bangladeshi Hindu victims.
