Actor and BJP politician Krishna Kumar has become a subject to online troll as soon as an interview of his daughter, actress Ahaana Krishna admitting that beef and rice is her favourite dish at home emerged on social media.
Apart from the video, Ahaana’s Instagram post on December 2020 is also going viral in social media platforms. The picture has tall containers holding a variety of dishes. One of the containers holds beef curry. Her caption for the picture read, “Whenever My Mamma sees good food , she thinks of Me. Whenever I see good food , I think of Mamma. Today I miss Mamma because I would have loved to share this lunch with her and she would have loved it !!!!”
Kumar is contesting from the Trivandrum central constituency in the upcoming Assembly Polls in Kerala. In an interview with a news channel, the BJP leader was in support to the beef ban. He said that a cow is a like a mother to us and that cows should not be slaughtered as we drink its milk.
Meanwhile, social media is having a field day. A Twitter user fusing both Kumar’s statement and Ahaana’s interview has released a meme video that has gone viral.
The BJP led central government announced a nationwide ban on cow slaughter in May 2017. It is, however, still legal in Kerala, West Bengal, Arunachal, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim. Over the last five years, there has been a rise in crimes relating to cow protection.
In the meantime, Kumar came out with the allegation that his daughter was removed from the cast of Prithviraj movie Bhramam directed by Ravi K Chandran due to his links with the saffron party. Ahaana, however, taking to Instagram, distanced herself from the controversy saying she is not blaming anyone.
“Just keep me away from it (news). I am not even in the picture, I have not blamed anyone. Some who spoke might be related to me, but it is always another person’s opinion. Don’t count me in. I have nothing to do with this drama.” The producers of Bhramam issued a statement saying that they do not have political affiliations or had anything to do with the casting of the film.
