Indian leaders are at it again. The ruling party BJP Vice President Baijayant Jay Panda has made some assertions about the Bollywood film industry. He is claiming that some Bollywood celebrities have links to Pakistan and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). We wonder, from where they get such information? LOL!
However, Panda did not take names, but he urged Bollywood to renounce these celebs. In a series of tweets, he made the claims that Bollywood celebs have business connections with Pakistan and also to those people who encourage war in Indian occupied Kashmir.
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.

An absolute must-read on Bollywood & its links to Pakistan's ISI. This article is part memoir, by a Pandit who grew up in J&K & escaped the community's genocide. But without bitterness, just rational analysis of the industry's underbelly, the Kashmir connection & the way forward. https://t.co/AePg4vyL3g

Panda on Arnab Goswami show
Panda also appeared in Arnab Goswami’s talk show and explained his stance. “We know in the past Bollywood has had funding from the underworld and has been linked to Pakistan. I had the impression that some of this had been cleaned up but clearly not all of it has been.”
However, Goswami, as well as Panda, condemned Bollywood celebrities for having connections with these Pakistani people calling it ‘creative links’ [Jealous?].
Many Bollywood stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Anil Kapoor, and Karan Johar have been named in this controversy.
On Wednesday, Indians on social media got their hands on some images of Shahrukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan with a California-based Kashmiri Tony Ashai. They allege that Ashai is an agent. However, he has rejected all the allegations by the Indian media and Indians.
This conspiracy theory that Indian media is peddling about me being an ISI agent is baseless. These journalists either put out a proof or apologize unconditionally. Short of that you will be sued individually in US Courts and will have to prove it there.

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart to all the people who came in my support. Love you All. Inshallah one day All Kashmiris will wake up to freedom, freedom to control your own destiny without a gun pointing at you.

Indians never fail to amaze us. They keep on coming with their own theories and logics to entertain us. We don’t know if their claims are true or not but funny for sure!!
