Akshay Kumar didn’t protest in support of ABVP; here’s the truth behind this viral picture


A picture of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is doing rounds on social media in which he can be seen holding an ABVP flag. It has been claimed that he attended a protest at JNU in support of ABVP.

The caption with the picture in Hindi read:

“JNU में ABVP के समर्थन में उतरे #राष्ट्रवादी #अक्षय_कुमार ✊ बेशर्म दीपिका तुमने अपने पैरों पर कुल्हाड़ी मारी है.. टुकड़े – टुकड़े गैंग का समर्थन करके तुमने साबित किया है अपनी गद्दारी….भक्तों से पंगा लेकर कांग्रेस पार्टी बर्बाद हो गई.. अभी – अभी सलमान खान की दबंग 3, फ़्लॉप हो चुकी है.. ख़ैर तुम्हारा और तुम्हारे फ़िल्म का क्या होगा..ये हम सब तय करेंगे.. लेकिन अफसोस तेरे चलते बेचारे #रणवीर का भी कैरियर बर्बाद ना हो जाये… 🇮🇳 #rv 🚩 ✊”

(Translation: In the support of abvp in jnu #and #aq _ Kumar ✊ Shameless Deepika you have hit your feet.. you have proved your betrayal by supporting the tukde-Tukde Gang…. by messing with the devotees Congress party has been ruined.. just now, Salman Khan’s Bold 3, has been published.. Well, what will happen to you and your film.. We will decide all of this.. but regret you are poor #Even the career of #raṇava should not be ruined)
