Kangana Ranaut, Salman Khan, And Celebs Come Out To Support Lakshadweep Tourism Amid Maldives Row


Mumbai: Bollywood celebrities and sports icons joined the discussion on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lakshadweep visit, sparking controversy with mockery from Maldivian political figures.

Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, John Abraham, Shraddha Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Sachin Tendulkar, and others showcased Lakshadweep’s beauty on social media. Some specifically mentioned PM Modi’s visit, addressing the reactions of Maldivian leaders in their posts.

Akshay Kumar labeled the remarks by Maldivian leaders as “unprovoked hate” while sharing screenshots of their statements.

He wrote, “Came across comments from prominent public figures from Maldives passing hateful and racist comments on Indians. Surprised that they are doing this to a country that sends them the maximum number of tourists. We are good to our neighbours but, Why should we tolerate such unprovoked hate? I’ve visited the Maldives many times and always praised it, but dignity first. Let us decide to #ExploreIndianIslands and support our own tourism.”

Salman Khan said, “It is so cool to see our Hon PM Narendrabhai Modi at the beautiful, clean and stunning beaches of Lakshadweep, and the best part is that yeh hamare India mein gain”

Shraddha Kapoor wrote on X, “All these images and memes making me super FOMO now 😍. Lakshadweep has such pristine beaches and coastlines, thriving local culture, I’m on the verge of booking an impulse chhutti âä️ This year, why not #ExploreIndianIslands”.

John Abraham shared stunning beach pictures, saying, “Lakshwadeep is the place to go”.

“With the amazing Indian hospitality, the idea of “Atithi Devo Bhava” and a vast marine life to explore. Lakshwadeep is the place to go,” he said.

Kangana Ranaut also responded to comments from the Maldives minister about PM Modi. “Smell?? Permanent smell?? What!!! Suffering from massive Muslim phobia, even though belonging to the same community. Lakshadweep consists of 98 percent of Muslim population, this prominent public figure from Maldives calling them smelly and lowly is rather racist and uninformed,” she wrote on X.

“For most people tourism is not just filthy luxury, it is rather exploration of nature, alignment with the source and above all experiencing and enjoying the raw, untouched beauty of virgin beaches. Shame on you for being so crass and vulgarly racist,” her tweet read further.

Sachin Tendulkar also posted a video of himself playing cricket on a beach and wrote, “India is blessed with beautiful coastlines and pristine islands. With our ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ philosophy, we have so much to explore, so many memories waiting to be created.”

As the controversy escalates, more celebrities are expected to participate in the conversation.

On January 4, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Lakshadweep, posting images of his time in the archipelago and snorkeling. The images gained widespread attention, with several people comparing them to the Maldives and declaring it a superior tourist destination.

Maldivian political figures responded with disparaging comments about Prime Minister Modi and ridiculed his visit. This prompted a brief wave of criticism from Indian internet users, with the hashtag “#BoycottMaldives” trending online.
