Clyde Crasto has slammed Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar for their silence on the detention of ace wrestlers
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Clyde Crasto has slammed Bollywood celebrities Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar for their silence on the recent incident involving the detention of ace wrestlers Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik, and Bajrang Punia by the Delhi police. The wrestlers were detained after they breached the security cordon while trying to move towards the new Parliament building for a planned women’s ‘Mahapanchayat’ on Sunday. In his scathing attack on the two Bollywood superstars, Clyde Crasto questioned why they had not shown support for the protesting wrestlers despite having acted in sports films and achieved fame and fortune through such roles. He asked, “What is stopping them from tweeting and showing support to our wrestlers who are fighting for justice? What or who are they afraid of?”
It is a valid question and one that many people are asking. Bollywood celebrities are often seen as role models and influencers, with millions of fans and followers across social media platforms. They have the power to raise awareness and support for important causes and issues, and their silence on this matter is concerning.
.@iamsrk and @akshaykumar tweeted and spoke about the New Parliament building.
Both acted in films based on sports and earned fame and fortune.
What is stopping them from tweeting and showing support to our wrestlers who are fighting for justice?
What or who are they afraid of ?

Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar are both known for their roles in sports films, with Shah Rukh Khan starring in the popular movie “Chak De! India”, which is about a women’s hockey team, and Akshay Kumar appearing in films like “Gold” and “Brothers”, which are based on hockey and mixed martial arts respectively.
Given their involvement in sports films, it seems only natural that they should speak out in support of the wrestlers who were detained by the police. These wrestlers are fighting for justice and their rights, and their cause deserves to be heard and supported by everyone, including celebrities.
look at some tweets about wrestlers’ protests:
दरिया अब तेरी ख़ैर नहीं,
बूँदो ने बग़ावत कर ली है
नादां ना समझ रे बुज़दिल,
लहरों ने बग़ावत कर ली है,
हम परवाने हैं मौत समाँ,
मरने का किसको ख़ौफ़ यहाँ
रे तलवार तुझे झुकना होगा,
गर्दन ने बग़ावत कर ली है॥ pic.twitter.com/a5AYDkjCBu

ये भी इतिहास में दर्ज हो गया कि जिस दिन नई संसद का उद्धघाटन हुआ था, उसी दिन बहन-बेटियों की इज्जत को यूं रौंदा गया था। अब कोई बाप अपनी बेटी को अखाड़े में भेजने से पहले 100 बार सोचेगा। जो चंद मैडल ओलंपिक में आते थे, अब उनके भविष्य पर भी सवालिया निशान लग गया है।#WrestlersProtest pic.twitter.com/dJ061sOOXV

It is not clear why Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar have remained silent on this issue. Perhaps they are afraid of offending someone, or they do not want to get involved in a political matter. Whatever their reasons, it is important for them to speak up and use their voice to support those who are fighting for justice.
