His tweet led to various netizens questioning his 'nationalism' and many opined minting money was more important for the actor.
Considering the fiery statements Kher has made about constrained ties with Pakistan, this development was bound to stoke controversy.
The latest movie became a hot topic of discussion
TAPM made way for a huge political storm after its trailer released. The fire refused to die till the movie's release.
Directed by Vijay Gutte, the movie brought to silver screen the book written by Sanjaya Baru, who was once a media adviser to former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.
It was shunted as a propaganda movie, but Kher remained unfazed.
Despite criticism, Kher stood by his work
Kher, on whose clout the entire movie found its spine, constantly said the movie had no agenda. When the movie's screening was stopped in some parts of the country by Congress workers, Kher was quick to berate the party's 'intolerance'.
However, Kher's movie being screened in Pakistan is in sharp contradiction to his political views.
Thanks to the Internet, everyone remembers his words.
