With Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kaabil’ all set to release on the eve of the Republic Day, BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya stirred up a controversy by coming in support of the latter. In a tweet, he said that if a person is ‘Kaabil’ (talented), then even a tea seller can become a successful person, but if he is not, and even born with a golden spoon and is Raees (rich), then he might have to struggle.
His latest statement has come hours after the Raees team, including Shahrukh Khan, reached the Vadodara Railway station by train. In chaos, that followed the star’s arrival, one person lost his life after being taken to a hospital. The comment has been severely criticised by several media houses, which asked whether the BJP leader was trying communalise the issue via his tweet.
