Demonetisation- What the stars are saying?
Mumbai Nov 14: Bollywood has by and large come out in support of the Union Government's move to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes in a bid to curb corruption and black money.
Aamir Khan lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation initiative and said he would not mind even if it affects his movie Dangal slated for release in December.
"What people are facing is a short term problem I've no problem even if it affects my film," ANI quoted Aamir as saying.
Shah Rukh Khan took to micro-blogging site Twitter to heap praises on Modi and termed the move as "farsighted" and "extremely smart".
Farsighted. Extremely smart. And not politically motivated. Will bring such a positive change for Indian economy. Great move @narendramodi— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) 9 November 2016
Ace filmmaker Karan Johar backed Government's decision, calling it a masterstroke.
This is truly a masterstroke move!!!! @narendramodi hits it out of the stadium!!!! 🇮🇳— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) 8 November 2016
Veteran superstar Amitabh Bachchan tweeted on the colour of new Rs 2000 note and compared it with his movie "Pink".
T 2435 - the new 2000 rs note is PINK in colour ... the PINK effect ..!!— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) 8 November 2016
On the other hand, Music composer Vishal Dadlani criticised the government for poorly implementing the policy.
"If it's true that 2,00,000 ATMs will have to be recalibrated before they can dispense the new currency, this demonetisation "plan" is a JOKE (sic)," he tweeted.
Replying to a Twitter user, Dadlani posted, "That's what nobody understands. I was one of the first to speak in support of Demonetisation. But the planning is an utter disaster!"
