Fans open letters to Bollywood celebs such as Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachan
Being a celebrity means you are being watched whether you like it or not! Yes, we have talked about this so much but there still are things that leave us all shocked wondering what were the celebs thinking before making any of these moves! Or were they even thinking!? Unlike us who keep it all in our minds, some fans take the liberty to slam their favorite celeb with an open letter! Here are some of the examples!
Aishwarya Rai Bachan
Why don’t we start with the hottest and most beautiful woman in the whole world!? Aishwarya Rai who was born on the 1st of November 1973 is an Indian model, the winner of the Miss World 1994 pageant and an actress. For her impeccable acting skills, she received so many awards such as Best Actress for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas. For the movie Raincoat, she and the movie received strong critics and she earned Best Actress nomination at Filmfare.

Aside from all that and the nice image we all know of her, there was a time when a racist advert for a jewelry brand caught the attention of everyone and made them furious! Fans expressed their anger in an open letter saying: “While advertisers routinely use fantasy images to sell products, they must surely desist from using images that condone, legitimise, normalize, or build a desirable fantasy around slavery or servitude of any kind, including child slavery or child servitude.
Further, the extremely fair color of your skin (as projected in the advertisement) contrasted with the black skin of the slave-boy is obviously a deliberate "creative" juxtaposition by the advertising agency, and insidiously racist. As an influential member of the Indian film industry and a popular star with a large fan following, we trust that you wish to use your image in a manner that promotes progressive thought and action, and would not knowingly promote regressive images that are racist and go against child rights.”

With the crazy number of dedicated fans that Salman Khan has, only his name is the reassurance, the director needs to know that the movie is going to earn a huge amount of money post release! He is known for helping so many people in this industry especially when they needed financial help! However, we have all heard about the tantrums he throws every now and then! Like when he said this in an interview for Sultan: “While shooting, during those six hours, there’d be so much of lifting and thrusting on the ground involved.
That was tough for me because if I was lifting, I’d have to lift the same 120-kilo guy 10 times for 10 different angles. And likewise, get thrown that many times on the ground. This act is not repeated that many times in the real fights in the ring. When I used to walk out of the ring, after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman. I couldn’t walk straight. I would eat and then, head right back to training. That couldn’t stop.”

After making such a statement, it was only the matter of time before he would get attacked by the social media and he received an open letter by Sunitha Krishnan, an eminent social worker, who was gang-raped at the age of 15. The open letter reads like this: “I do not wish to take the name of the person in question because I feel it would be an act of giving him too much respect. The fact that he could easily compare himself to being raped shows how badly he has trivialized rape and rape culture.
The harsh truth is that good looks and some talent made him the star that he is and he takes this role very lightly. With such fame, comes responsibility. Instead of being aware of this, he has basically compared the scars, trauma, and abuse of a rape victim to his role in a movie. I keep hearing men and women making such remarks and recently too, I found a woman who made a joke along these lines. She used to say 'I was raped by this' or 'I was raped by that' with no thought on the repercussions of these statements. What we need to remember is rape culture is around us and all of these trivializing remarks add to it. As far as I can say, only perverts can make such statements. He is a disgrace.”
Kareena Kapoor's choice of the name for her son was also questioned by the furious fans!
And last but not the least the one and only Kareena Kapoor! When she and her husband, Saif Ali Khan decided to name their son Taimur, this is what happened!
"Did you have a say in naming your son? Isn't it an injustice to your son who will have to carry such a horrendous name throughout his life? Did you try to Google search about Taimur after his name was shortlisted? Do you know that Taimur is a common name in Pakistan due to its Anti-Hindu roots? Did you know that Pakistan has named their Missile after Taimur due to their hatred for India? If yes, then that clears you too.
I sincerely hope that this beastly decision of naming your son Taimur is retracted soon! After all, the actions of celebrities influence more in India! Your glorification of an Islamist villain will give rise to more Radicalization of misguided Muslim youths. India has given you name, fame, money and what not! It's time you pay back to your Country by reversing the vice without feeling embarrassed. We Indians will applaud and appreciate this gesture. You may say it's none of our business to bother about your son or family... But the country believes, Taimur is to India, what Hitler is to Israel!!!"
