Vivek Oberoi asks Rajdeep Sardesai if his movie is ‘propaganda’, should Rajdeep’s show also be shut down for ‘influencing elections’

While responding to the controversy over the release of the movie, Vivek Oberoi shot back to Rajdeep asking whether his show should also be banned for influencing viewers through his opinions just like he accused the movie of influencing elections.

Rajdeep Sardesai, the Michelangelo of Indian journalism, who often expresses his inherent hatred and bias against Prime Minister Modi, got called out once again on his own show by actor Vivek Oberoi after he resorted to false propaganda.

On his show last night, Rajdeep Sardesai had invited actor Vivek Oberoi to discuss the movie inspired by Narendra Modi in which Oberoi portrays the role of Prime Minister Modi. Rajdeep Sardesai, as usual in a hurry to discredit anything associated with PM Modi, straightaway questioned it as a ‘propaganda movie’ without even watching it.

Sardesai, who once admitted that Journalists like him were like vultures, attempted to shoot out his anger from the shoulders of opposition parties against the makers of the movie. Rajdeep Sardesai questioned Vivek Oberoi on the timing of the release of the movie just ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, as Rajdeep claims that the movie is being released to influence elections.

Referring to Rajdeep “as a huge opinion maker”, Vivek Oberoi not only responded to allegations made by Rajdeep Sardesai with all politeness but also showed the mirror to him about his political biases and opinions. While responding to the controversy over the release of the movie, Vivek Oberoi shot back to Rajdeep asking whether his show should also be banned for influencing viewers through his opinions just like he accused the movie of influencing elections.

Questioning the logic of Rajdeep Sardesai, Vivek Oberoi asked Rajdeep Sardesai whether he was influencing elections through his opinions and asked him that if his movie can be branded as a ‘propaganda movie’, applying the same logic, can Rajdeep’s show be banned for its opinions too.

Rajdeep asked Vivek Oberoi that as the elections are approaching, his movie is to be slammed by the opposition leaders as being biased and an attempt to project PM Modi as a larger than life character. Vivek replied that neither the EC nor the constitution of India has any problems with Vivek making and releasing the movie.

Taking his attack further, Rajdeep even appeared desperate when he asked Vivek whether he can ‘cross his heart’ and say that he is not being funded by any political party. Vivek replied coolly that there is a system in place to verify the funding of a movie and his movie has not been funded by any political party. He further added that there was no necessity for him to portray PM Modi as a hero, as people of the country already accept that PM Modi is indeed a ‘hero’.

Justifying his decision to make a biopic on PM Modi, the actor said, PM Modi’s life story and vision inspires a billion people in India who proudly thump their chests at being called ‘Bhakts’. He added that he felt that the story of a poor man’s rise from humble beginnings to an inspiring leader of a billion people, had to be told.

Rajdeep Sardesai, one of the leading faces of the left-leaning Lutyens cabal Media, has openly shown his disdain towards the Prime Minister Narendra Modi ever since he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat. Just a few days back. Rajdeep Sardesai had shamelessly twisted the statements made by the Prime Minister to give it to a communal angle.

Recently, Rajdeep had taken to Twitter to lament the lack of ‘evidence’ of the strike that had been carried out by the Indian Air Force when the entire nation was in support with the Armed Forces.
