Mumbai. After last month’s sting on DHFL promoters, this time it’s an exposé called “Operation Karaoke”—a 60-minute documentary film that allegedly shows 36 Bollywood celebrities willing to accept large sums of cash in exchange for posting favorable messages on behalf of various political parties.
Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Kailash Kher, Mika Singh and Baba Sehgal; actors Jackie Shroff, Shakti Kapoor, Vivek Oberoi, Sonu Sood, and many others have been exposed by the sting. The biggest name is though that of Uday Chopra who was given a huge sum of money to not tweet anything about politics.
Political parties are least bothered by Uday Chopra’s views on politics and they believe that anything that he tweets political can be detrimental to their cause. And that’s the reason all parties want to keep Uday Chopra out of the political scene.
Political parties also know the fact that people consider Uday to be a jobless person and if he tweets in favor of their party people will think that only jobless people are supporting their party. This can cause harm to the image of a particular party in the run-up to the elections. Uday Chopra is very hurt at being caught for a case in which he doesn’t have to tweet anything. He believes that if at all there shoudl be any case on him in future he should at least be guilty of tweeting something.
