New Delhi, Apr 24 : In an apparent jibe at the interview of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said no amount of acting would help when reality was known.
In a post on social media, Rahul, in an apparent reference to the PM's interview to Akshay kumar, said that the ' chowkidar' needed to understand that he could not deceive the public. “हकीकत रूबरू हो तो अदाकारी नहीं चलती। जनता के सामने, चौकीदार मक्कारी नहीं चलती। (When the reality is for all to see, no amount of acting helps. The Chowkidar should understand that deceit does not work with the public),” Rahul tweeted.
His reaction came in response to Akshay Kumar's ‘non-political’ interview of Modi at the sprawling lawns of his official residence in Delhi in which he talked of life after his retirement and aspects of his personal life. Earlier, the Congress said it seemed that the PM was looking for an alternative employment avenue in the film industry.
AICC media incharge Randeep Surjewala told mediapersons, “An unsuccessful politician who has decimated India's economy, decimated India's jobs, who has made life hell for India's farmers and the poor, is now trying to become a better actor than Akshay Kumar. It seems that a failed politician who is going to be rejected on May 23, is looking for an alternative employment avenue in Bollywood.”
'Akshay Kumar is a very great actor. We all like him. He is a successful actor. A failed politician is trying to become a better actor than Akshay. This is a good try. But how can he become better actor than Akshay Kumar? Maybe he has made his mind to move from politics to the Bollywood, because these days biopic is also going on.” (UNI)
