Anyone and everyone who has a differential opinion than the core Hindutva ideology of the governing Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) is labelled anti-national and pro-Pakistan. However, the matter to be looked into at this point of time is the attack on Bollywood celebs and their classification as Pakistan supporters. Are they really supporters or sympathisers of Pakistan? I do not support the much-discussed nepotism prevailing in B-town, nor endorse celebrities. But this new trend of B-town and its so-called ISI links are a subject of thought.
Formerly, Research and Analysis Wing officer NK Sood, on his Youtube channel, had alleged that Bollywood A-lister Deepika Padukone had links with Pak national Aneel Mussarat. He went on to say that Padukone visited the JNU campus in January this year after being paid a hefty sum by Mussarat.
This could have been stated as an isolated incident at that time. But later on, even B-town star Shah Rukh Khan was on the radar for a while. SRK was linked to US-based Kashmiri Tony Ashai, who has been asking Kashmiri youth to raise their voice against the revocation of Article 370 and the events that followed.
Pictures were shared on Twitter where the duo was spotted together and subsequently, connections between Pakistan PM Imran Khan and Ashai were highlighted. Pictures were also dugout in which B-town star Akshay Kumar was spotted with Aneel Mussarat. Mussarat has been linked to many Bollywood celebs earlier.

Afterwards, BJP leaders came forward and made claims about the so-called interrelation between B-town and the ISI. Recently, BJP’s National Vice President Baijayant Panda claimed that Bollywood has received funding from the mafia operating in Pakistan. All of these point towards a daunting danger that is growing with time.
Came across shocking threads documenting personal & business links of some Bollywood personalities with certain Pakistanis & NRIs with undeniable track record encouraging violence in J&K, who have verifiable links to ISI & Pak army. I urge patriotic Bollywoodies to renounce them.

If you go to any country that is a so-called supporter of Pakistan, and share your socialising pictures from there, be ready to be linked with the ISI because you are screwed for sure. The RW-Hindutva activists on social media will make sure they troll you, just like the case of Aamir Khan who visited Turkey for filming some shots for his upcoming movie.
They are coming not just for the Khans, but everyone who is an anti-national in their eyes.
