Indian Celebs Failed to Handle National Flag Properly, Fell in Controversial Row
Rajni Verma | 19 Jun 2015

No doubt everyone do respect their national flag. One leave no stone unturned to prove his honesty and loyality toward his nation. However, wrapping flag on one's body or stepping on the it, can be counted as one of scornful act.


In many incidents, bollywood celebs caught insulting national flags. Surprisingly, Amitabh Bachchan also caught in the very same row. After getting slapped with a notice from Tamil forum for endorsing maggi without verifying the ingredients used in it, Amitabh Bachchan tangled in another controversy. 

Amitabh Bachchan with his son Abhishek Bachchan went to watch India-Pakistan world cup match at Adelaide, where the father-son duo wrapped India's national flag around their body. Thus, their act fumed few people who filed complaint against both in Ghaziabad Court for insulting national flag by wrapping it around themselves. The complanaint also claimed that their act had been witnessed by complainant himself and four others.

However, this is not the first time when bollywood celeb unintentionally tangled himself in such row. Earlier, Malika Sherawat landed herself in a midst of controversy when in Dirty Politics movie poster she appeared before everyone in tri-color. In movie poster she was sitting on the top if VIP car and tri-color cloth was drapped around her body. Perhaps, the incident added another controversy in actress's bollywood career. People not only took it as a offence but also demanded to change the poster. Later, things sorted out and movie released but couldn't work well inspite of garnering so much attention.

Even sports person couldn't saved themselves from engulfing in the same chain. Sania Mirza in one of event clicked by a photographer when she was resting her bare feet on the table exact next to an Indian flag. The gesture of her considered as an insult to national flag. Even King Khan i.e Shah Rukh Khan booked once by Pune police for wavering flag in very inappropriate manner.

Accidentally, these known personalities fell in such controversial for insulting national flag. Although they leave no chance to demonstrate that how truly loyal and devoted they are to the nation, however, things soared at the same time when such incident happened.

Let's hope soon they will understand how to be good and fair with national flag.
