Whenever a Bollywood celebrity makes a statement which is off the charts and needs a lot of gutso, the entire fandom goes off the rails in order to awe over the statement and the other half rears their ugly claws and fangs to jeer off the star for making the statement that doesn’t fit their lexicon of ideals.
