Farhan Akhtar Brutally Trolled For Participating In Diwali Puja Despite Being A Muslim, Actor & His Family To Take A Legal Action
Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar was recently subjected to online trolling after he uploaded a Diwali Puja picture on his social media. The actor was mercilessly trolled by a few extremists and the Akhtar family has now decided to take legal action on the matter. A source close to the family told news portal that Javed Akhtar is quite stern on the matter and does not believe in letting go of the abusers and haters.
The Rock On star posted the Lakshmi Puja picture on November 2, 2021, and was quick to receive mixed reactions from the audience. In the happy picture, he was spotted putting a tilak on his girlfriend, Shibani Dandekar’s forehead with a bright smile cross his face. He was donning a bright blue traditional kurta and was also accompanied by a bunch of family members and friends.
Javed Akhtar is of the stance that ignoring these hate-filled comments is like playing into the hands of these trolls. The family usually does not give too much importance to the hate remarks but they have decided to take action this time around since the hate quotient is way too excessive. The Bollywood Hungama source stated that the Akhtar family believes in the oneness of all Gods and the trolls should not have a say in it. Since Farhan Akhtar’s father is a Muslim and mother is a Parsi, the actor celebrates Diwali as naturally as Eid.
