Ahead of Samrat Prithviraj’s release, the leading star Akshay Kumar along with Manushi Chhillar visited Somnath Temple in Gujarat and paid their respects to the ruler. Amid this, Netizens trolled him for hypocrisy.
Akshay Kumar’s temple visit
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chillar’s film Samrat Prithviraj, which was released recently, is putting up an average performance at the box office. The film witnessed a low trend since its release and only collected Rs 55 crores so far.
After the release, the duo visited Somnath Temple in Gujarat and paid their respect. Pictures and videos from the event went viral on social media.
A netizen clearly made a collage of two videos. In one video Akshay Kumar is heard talking about wasting milk for temple worship and how being a ‘good human’ is important for God, not worshipping idols. In another video, he is seen performing ‘aarti’ at the Varanasi Ghat.
The video is now going viral on social media and netizens are calling him out for his hypocrisy. Take at the video below:

Akshay Kumar is an actor (I wouldn’t call him an artist) who wants to make money. He ridicule Hindus for wasting milk over lord Shiva when he is promoting Oh My God, he himself pour milk on Lord Shiva when he is promoting Prithviraj. He knows well that under the garb of biopic +

When Hindu-bashing film 'Oh My God' is releasing:
-Mock Shivling Puja
-Mock offerings to deity
-Mock temple visits
-Deride Puja as "idol-worship"
When film on Prithviraj is realising:
-Do all of the above
How easy it is to win Hindu audience!
Well played, Akshay Kumar! pic.twitter.com/owCNPrNq7r

"Bhagwan ke naam pe dedo baba…"
This should be your slogan for life.
Believe in God, don't sell God.
