Bollywood fraternity kept business aside and organised a news conference recently to promote National Integration in anticipation of the Ayodhya verdict. They appealed the people to live in peace and unity.
The news conference was attended by big Bollywood personalities like Ajay Devgn, Sajid Nadiadwala, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Madhur Bhandarkar, Sajid Khan, Sophie Choudry, Zayed Khan, Ritesh Sidhwani and Pahlaj Nihalani.
In the meanwhile, Salman Khan also appealed his fans to maintain peace even as the court pronounces the Ayodhya-Babri Masjid verdict today. He said that Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikh and people from all religious communities are brothers. He added that we should not fight but stay united and love each other.
Ranbir Kapoor had earlier requested the makers of Anjaana Anjaani to postpone its release on September 24, saying that Ayodhya verdict was more important than his film.
The Allahabad High Court was supposed to announce Ayodhya-Babri Masjid verdict on September 24 but was postponed to 30th. The central government is confident that peace will prevail, as almost all political parties and religious groups have said that they would respect the verdict of the court. Moreover, they can approach the Supreme Court if they are not happy with the verdict of the High Court.
