A picture of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is doing rounds on social media in which he can be seen holding an ABVP flag. It has been claimed that he attended a protest at JNU in support of ABVP.
The caption with the picture in Hindi read:
“JNU में ABVP के समर्थन में उतरे #राष्ट्रवादी #अक्षय_कुमार ✊ बेशर्म दीपिका तुमने अपने पैरों पर कुल्हाड़ी मारी है.. टुकड़े – टुकड़े गैंग का समर्थन करके तुमने साबित किया है अपनी गद्दारी….भक्तों से पंगा लेकर कांग्रेस पार्टी बर्बाद हो गई.. अभी – अभी सलमान खान की दबंग 3, फ़्लॉप हो चुकी है.. ख़ैर तुम्हारा और तुम्हारे फ़िल्म का क्या होगा..ये हम सब तय करेंगे.. लेकिन अफसोस तेरे चलते बेचारे #रणवीर का भी कैरियर बर्बाद ना हो जाये… 🇮🇳 #rv 🚩 ✊”
