Anna, Ramdev have a Bollywood connection!
Anna Hazare or Baba Ramdev, everyone has a reason to protest. And here are some extremely creative ways in which some people have commented on some of the problems India is dealing with everyday…
Yesterday we showed you an example of how people involved in popular movements take ‘inspiration’ from Bollywood either to further their cause or just to present it in a lighter vein. The image came from an email forward and had a picture of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi morphed on to a poster of a popular film released in 1999, starring Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai. We have found more such posters, new and old, with people like Baba Ramdev and Anna Hazare playing major roles, but not all of them flaunt a cause. Sometimes they have been created by folk who have nothing to do with any cause and nothing better to do with their time. But that is the occupational hazard of being a politician or a crusader – people give their mischievous streak free reign at your expense! Bollywoodlife on its part does not in any way support or promote the mockery, whoever it may be directed at, but we are simply sharing something we found interesting and what has appealed to you, judging by the viewership it has garnered. And this will definitely save you a trip to join Anna at Ramlila Maidan, no? But just remember guys, this is all in jest. No offence!Click here to read more
