Mumbai film world has for decades been dominated by Muslims. This commenced long before partition in 1947 and continued after that. The top reigning star at that time was Dilip Kumar ( Yusuf Khan) and the top heroines were Madhubala and Meena Kumari, who were also Muslim. Presently, the top three superstars are again Muslim and its a toss-up as to which of them is number one. The top three are Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan. Out of these. Aamir and Shahrukh came out against the BJP government at the center, after the BJP won the 2014 election.

They claimed the country under the BJP regime was embracing "intolerance." MSN news has reported that these stars have shown their bias by refusing to attend a function in honor of the Israeli PM. He was on a visit to Mumbai to meet Indian businessmen and honor the sole survivor of the carnage by terrorists from Pakistan on 26/11.

Israeli PM

The Israeli PM was on a six-day visit to India at the invitation of the Indian PM, Narendra Modi. The importance the Indian government and Modi attached to the visit was evident, when Modi defied protocol and received his "good friend" the Israeli PM at the airport. The meeting was significant and a number of agreements were signed. In addition, a contract for Israeli missiles for 50 million dollars which was earlier shelved was also back on track.

Netanyahu traveled to Mumbai to meet captains of Indian industry as well as visit the "White House" which houses the Jewish cultural center in Mumbai. This was destroyed by the terrorists and all the Jews killed. Only one young boy survived, who was hidden by his Indian nanny.

The three Khan's refuse

A reception was arranged for the visiting PM and many top film stars from Bollywood including Amitabh Bachchan and Karan Johar graced the occasion.

The Times of India has published photos of Amitabh taking selfies with Netanyahu.

The three Khans, however, did not turn up for the function. No reason was given by them but one can surmise that they felt that they could not be part of a team to welcome the Israeli PM, simply because he is aJew. Probably it was also to express solidarity with the Palestine Arabs.


By this act, the three Khans have signaled their dissent with the policy followed by the Modi government. Its a pity they resorted to such a step and forgot all about the people who made them superstars, all of whom are Hindus.

The act of the three Khans shows that Bollywood is getting divided along religious lines and that is not a good thing.
