Ishaan Khatter has responded to a man who questioned his Blackout Tuesday post to protest the police killing of George Floyd in america. The hashtag #BlackOutTuesday had become the top trending item on Twitter as several celebrities posted black screen shots to signal support for racial justice. The social media blackout was “to show that racism of any sort can not be tolerated”.
A person commented, “Didn’t have the guts to speak out when the Delhi police did the same thing to unarmed students but now wow.?, as Ishaan Khatter posted a black frame on Instagram?
Reacting to the troll, the actor said, “Not that I owe you or anybody an explanation, but I did. Find someone else to nitpick on. This is the time to indicate solidarity for the entire world as one, not to find faults in those who are doing it.”
His fans also arrived within his support. Praising the actor, a follower wrote, “Whenever someone raises their voice. Ppl ask about past, why did not u… Might be they felt conscious now, might be they was without this passion before, may be these people were policing the way that they behave in virtual world. No less than, they started now. We should appreciate whoever stands in solidarity. We need to look forward not backwards in past.” Another commented, “could not have said it better! .” An additional called it “an on-point reply.”
All from Hollywood celebrities GalRihanna and Gadot, Nick Jonas to Preity Zinta, Radhika Apte, Neha Dhupia shared black screenshots within the Blackout Tuesday protest.
Ishaan was last observed in his debut Bollywood film Dhadak. He will now be observed opposite Ananya Panday in Khaali Peeli and Mira Nair’s film based upon Vikram Seth’s book, A Good Boy. The film also stars Tabu.
