Crowds will come to see Dawood too: BJP's Vijayvargiya targets 'Raees' promotion

Crowds will turn out even if Dawood Ibrahim comes in public, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said on Tuesday, targeting Shah Rukh Khan over the death of a man during heavy rush at the actor’s promotion of his film ‘Raees’ for which he travelled by train.

Vijayvargiya also took to Twitter to praise Prime Minister Narendra Modi and hit out at Rahul Gandhi using the titles of two upcoming Bollywood films, saying our country’s ‘Kaabil’ is better than the ‘Raees’ of other country, apparently referring to the Congress vice-president’s foreign roots.

“There is a new tradition of promoting films. The promoters should at least take care of public convenience. If they promote films in railways, the common people will suffer. Even if Dawood appears in public, crowd will come out. So we cannot gauge the popularity (of people), at least, on the basis of crowd,” Vijayvargiya said.

He said public convenience should be kept in mind and films should be promoted without causing trouble to people.

Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan set for a box office clash this Republic Day.

Later, he posted a photograph on twitter, saying “The ‘Raees’ who is not of his country, he is of no use. One should stand with a ‘Kaabil’ (worthy) patriot. It is now the turn of ‘Kaabil’ people of the country whose rights cannot be taken away by any dishonest ‘Raees’ (wealthy)”.

Raees, which is directed by Rahul Dholakia, revolves around a Gujarati bootlegger (played by SRK). While Pakistani actor Mahira Khan plays his love interest, Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays a cop in the film.

In another tweet, which was accompanied by a photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi, with his torn ‘kurta’, he said,”If someone is ‘Kaabil’, a tea seller can also become a Prime Minister, otherwise a ‘Raees’, who has been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, also wears a torn kurta.”

When asked about his earlier tweet supporting Kaabil, which stars Hritik Roshan, Vijayvargiya said, “Those for whom the message was meant have undersood”.
