Mumbai : After Abhay Deol criticized Bollywood actors for endorsing fairness creams and called their ad campaigns “demeaning, false, and racist”, Anupam Kher has now asked celebrities to stop endorsing hair growth products, calling their ad campaigns “demeaning, false and hairist.”
In a series of sardonic tweets, Kher aimed at Rahul Bose, Virender Sehwag and other celebrities while sharing various ads they have done for hair growth products and clinics.
His tweets received tremendous response on Twitter. Thousands of people supported his statements by retweeting him and replying to his tweets positively. Around 6,500 bald people started following Kher yesterday after he took a firm stand on the issue.
Kher tweeted an ad that showed actor Rahul Bose holding ‘Livon Hair Tonic’ in his hand. Here, Kher wrote: “We are not a hairist country! Why is having hair so important?” In his subsequent tweets, Kher listed men who contributed to the history despite having little or no hair. The list included names like Mahatma Gandhi, Winston Churchill and Charles Darwin among others. He also mentioned Hollywood actors like Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and Bruce Willis who are successful in the show business despite being bald.
In his concluding tweets, the actor condemned the idea of campaigns that portray having hair makes you superior. “There’s a lot more of these campaigns that are blatantly, and sometimes subtly, selling you the idea that having hair is better than being bald. Don’t fall for it. Be yourself, flaunt your baldness”
After these tweets, the stock prices of ‘Dr. Batra’s health products ltd.’ have steeply fallen. Dr. Batra is extremely angry with Kher. He has decided to avenge his loss by spamming Anupam Kher on Email, Sms, Facebook, Twitter, residential address and office address.
