Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt Not Allowed To Enter Ujjain Mahakaleshwar Temple For ‘Beef’ Comment

Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh) [India]: Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt along with director Ayan Mukerji, on Tuesday, faced protests at the well-known Mahakaleshwar Temple in Ujjain, for the ‘Rockstar’ actor’s comment that he likes pork, in 2011.

Ranbir, Alia, and director Ayan currently arrived in Ujjain to take the blessings of Lord Shiva for his or her upcoming movie ‘Brahmastra Part-1: Shiva’, all through their visit to the temple, Bajrang Dal members protested against the actor for his 11-12 months-vintage comment which is currently being circulated on social media. Some social media customers went through the vintage information and dug up Ranbir’s old interviews wherein the ‘Besharam’ actor once said that he likes to consume pork and circulated the clip on social media.

Due to his eleven years vintage remark, the actor is currently dealing with numerous backlash on social media and trollers are using the hashtag #BoycottBrahmastra on Twitter, asking humans now not to watch the film.

Bajrang Dal contributors held black flags and placards at the Mahakaleshwar Temple, as a signal of protest against the film.

Apparently, Ranbir and Alia have been not allowed to go into the Temple premises and only Ayan was given permission to take the deity’s blessing.

Local police took the situation under manipulation and some protesters had been overwhelmed by the officials for breaching protection.

Taking to Twitter, Congress Rajya Sabha member Priyanka Chaturvedi shared a put up in which numerous b-city celebs might be seen posing with PM Narendra Modi, she wrote, “None of this photo op will help if you’ll continue to be mute spectators to hate and believe it’s not your business to talk politics. They will come after you anyway. Mahakaleshwar temple protests in Ujjain is a case in point. Shame that political prejudice is leading to such ugliness.”

Ankit Jindal, Bajrang Dal co-ordinator stated, ” We won’t allow Alia and Ranbir to enter the temple, he said that eating beef is a good thing, Bajrang dal won’t let anyone with this thinking, enter the Baba Mahakal Temple. The whole country is protesting against this; if he arrives at the temple today, we would not let that happen. We were protesting peacefully with black flags, but police started beating our workers, which is unacceptable.”

Talking about the incident, Police Officer OP Mishra stated, “Due to a VIP movement at the temple, we were taking security calls and the protesters were asked to stay behind the barricading, a member from Bajrang Dal came and started breaching the security due to which we had to take the following security calls .”

Helmed by using Ayan Mukerji, ‘Brahmastra: Part 1- Shiva’ is ready to hit the theatres on September nine, 2022, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
