In big trouble for Indian celebrities such as Sachin Tendulkar, Akshay Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Suniel Shetty and Ajay Devgn, the Maharashtra government has said that the state’s intelligence department will launch a probe into their tweets parroting the Narendra Modi government’s stand on farmers’ protest in response to the show of solidarity by international celebrities.

Maharashtra Congress leader Sachin Sawant said that the state’s Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had assured him about the probe to see if Indian celebrities were forced to parrot the government line.

“Home Minister .@AnilDeshmukhNCP Anil has assured .@INCMaharashtra Spokesman .@sachin_inc over a zoom call that the state intelligence department will prove whether . @SachinTendulk33. @mangeshkarlata
etc were pressurised to tweet by the center,” Sawant tweeted.



According to NDTV, Sawant added that Akshay Kumar and Saina Nehwal had tweeted the exact same thing and actor Suniel Shetty had tagged a BJP leader. “While everyone has a right to express themselves, we want the government to probe whether these people were pressurized by the government to tweet this,” Sawant said.

While badminton star Saina Nehwal and Akshay had posted identical tweets with similar hashtags, Suniel Shetty had tagged one BJP leader, Hitesh Jain, in his response.

Indian celebrities had faced fans’ fury for their decision to parrot the government line to counter the concern expressed by international celebrities such as pop icon Rihanna, climate activist Greta Thunberg, actor Amanda Cerny and Meena Harris, niece of US Vice President Kamala Harris. These international celebrities had taken to their social media pages to voice their concern over the government crackdown against the protesting farmers. NCP chief Shard Pawar had warned Tendulkar to exercise caution in future.

  1. Thats a right decision of Maharashtra Govt. because who knows there could be a bigger conspiracy to use these celebrities like they used Kangana and Arnab but it failed. Else why did these celebrities suddenly wake up from sleep and spread fear of Indian sovereignerity at danger and unnecessarily give it a different angle like BJP uses nationalism for everything. Shame on these celebrities to be anti-farmer especially when Maharashtra their state has so many farmers. All India had respected and idolised Lata and Sachin irrespective of caste, religion, ideology and these people have insulted their love and respect. They can have and support any ideology or party as freedom of right, but they should realise somebody’s personal and political agenda cannot be run at the expense of farmers and common people of the country.

  2. Too many advertisements manage to waste my time on the Internet!!! Whenever I need any product for my personal use I take the advice of my family members who live with me , to procure the item/brand. I am a Senior Citizen (75+) with a irritable nature.

  3. It’s really matter of surprise that the Gems of India, living in Maharastra, cannot write for the unity and integrity of India…….. They have to face the wrath of the Maharashtra govt. Shame to read that the said govt. didn’t utter a word when some outsiders like Rehanna and Greta poked their nose in India’s internal matter……

    • Well said, I fully agree with you. Alarming situation these days, if you criticise India, even falsely you are brave, but if you stand by your country you get condemned. We who love our country need to be more vocal.

  4. Sharam ki baat hai MH government ki, bahar ka koi bol raha to jara tumhari intelligence agency ko bolo ki jo bahar se tweet kar rahe unko to influence ni kiya gaya hai, are isse gatiya chij aaj tak ni dekhi. Ye pakka Balasaheb ke hi vansh ke log hai na. Agar balasaheb hote to abhi hisab hi barabar kar dete bahar walo ka. Hum ghar main kitna bhi lade par bahar walo ko nak bicb main ghusane ka koi haq ni.

  5. Even if they were pressurized they also have brains and they are with the country not with people tweeting from out of country. Shame on Maharashtra politicians. They can go so low that they are blaming their own citizens .

  6. Some politicians have gone mad.They have all rights to express their opinions.Judiciary should intervene.Given the chance,some politicians can sell this country.In India ,it seems, speaking for the country is a crime,while speaking against the country has many takers.

  7. Everyone has freedom of speech and expression,that exactly Sachin & all celebrities did.No any surprise ,but this nonsense government is doubting on everyone,this is Hitlarshahi.

  8. My respects to Lata Mangeshkar and the other Indian icons like Sachin. जो लत्ता और सचिन को सतायेगा, वो.चूर चूर हो जायेगा।

  9. If there were Oscar Awards in India for politicians, Sharad Pawar would have got it as Lifetime Achievement……..CM Thackeray for Best Supporting Actor and Ajit Pawar for Best Comedian……… looting India’s wealth after the British left, has become a motto for our politicians…..and whenever a major looting activity is going on, general people’s focus is diverted by foreign media barons like NDTV so that exchequer looting goes unnoticed… really disgraceful.

  10. Maha govt has got so much on its plate. Going after celebrities (who are supporting Modi govt), unjustifiable electricity bills, haven’t seen any development related policies but worst water crisis which is well encashed by tanker mafias.. Rest in peace Balasaheb

  11. This is height of Aghadi Sarkar stupidity. Why should Indian celebrities not support Indian govt in the way they like? Its good the Uttar Pradesh is developing a film city.
