Sara Ali Khan, the popular Bollywood actress, recently visited Madhya Pradesh and explored some beautiful temples in Ujjain and Indore. She shared her temple experiences on Instagram, posting videos of herself offering prayers at the Kal Bhairav Temple, Mahakaleshwar Temple in Ujjain, and Khajrana Ganesh Temple in Indore.
One of the videos that went viral showed Sara wearing a lovely pink saree at the Mahakaleshwar Temple as she seemed completely absorbed in the devotional songs playing in the temple. The video, shared by news agency ANI, created a debate on social media, with people sharing their thoughts and opinions.
“I’m curious- how is she allowed to get in up close and personal with the deity there but everyone else is standing outside a barrier? Don’t the same rules apply for everyone?”, wrote someone.
Sab Filmo drama hai aur kuch nahi jab bhi film ato hai tabhi unko Bhagwan Mandir aur naka ne ky kya yaad ata hai sab ke sab Bollywood wale jistra filme acting karte hai usi tarha jab movie release hoti hai usi tarha temple me aake acting karte hai
A netizen wrote, “Anushka Virat now Sara I guess… to capitalize on growing religious sentiments is the new PR strategy..” “Idk but these antics make her seem insincere. Getting papped is one thing and sensationalizing such things is another.”, someone wrote.
A user wrote, “Yaha pe bhi acting teekh se nahi kar payi” “Every time she visits temple we get a clear picture and video of it. When other celebs visit the temple we get bad-quality pictures and videos. Is she taking her own videos and leaking it to paps? While she was leaving there is a guy with dslr behind her. Isn’t it show off ?”, wrote someone.
“Idk why comments on here are saying “This isn’t pr she was going long before” Then why the hell are the media called then? No papz are just there in a temple to click pictures. This wasn’t some chance encounter. An airport or at their home ok maybe… At the temple, they were called. It’s PR now and it was before when she first called them. It’s to help with her “nice, religious good girl”, wrote a netizen.
In the midst of criticism, some came forward to appreciate Sala Ali Khan’s devotion:
A user wrote, “I can feel It’s true bhakti of Mahakal Baba. She is absorbed completely in Shiv. God bless her.” “She is a real devotee of Mahakal,” wrote another user. “Yeh ladki kamaal hai yaar. Hats off to Sara Ali Khan,” wrote one more user. “I really like how she embraces both religions simultaneously. She is a bhakt of Mahadev and could be seen in many Shiv Temples, but at the same time enjoys Eid and goes to mosques. And the best part, she isn’t faking this.”, someone wrote.
Not the first time: Sara Ali Khan Trolled For Her Temple Visits Earlier Too
Earlier, Sara was asked how she deals with all the negativity thrown at her. To this, the actress had said, “Honestly main ye keh chuki hoon aur phir se kahungi… ki main apne kaam ko bohot seriously leti hoon. Mein kaam karti hu janta ke liye, aap logon ke liye. Agar aap logon ko mera kaam achcha na lage… toh mujhe bura lagega.”
“Lekin yeh jo meri niji maanyata he, ye meri niji maanyata hain. Main Ajmer Sharif utni shiddat se jaungi jitni ki Bangla Sahib, jitna Mahakal, aur main jaati rahungi. Toh jisko bhi jo bhi bol sakte hain, woh bol sakte hai. Mujhe koi problem nahi hai. Lekin kahi bhi jaakar sabse jaruri baat ye hoti hai ki aapko waha ki uorja achchi lagni chahiye…main uorja mein maanyata rakhti hoon,” she had said.
