Deepika, Kareena, Shahid support Modi’s demonetisation move


PM Modi’s demonetization move which was declared on November 8th is a bold step towards eradicating corruption, abolishing black money and fight against fake notes. Citizens of India  are facing trouble in getting their notes exchanged or depositing or withdrawing money after 500 and 1000 currency notes were banned but they are welcoming PM Modi’s decision with open heart.

Our Bollywood celebrities are also lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s strong move towards corruption-free India and they are congratulating Mr PM.

Here’s what Bollywood stars Shahid Kapoor,Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan and others said:

"If corruption is what you want to remove then you have to take some tough measures. It’s still early to comment on how it will go because there are some practicalities that are attached to the change in currency and the notes that have been changed. So it is going to be difficult. Everybody is finding it difficult," Shahid told reporters here.

But Sasha also appreciated the intention behind the move and said, "If it leads to less corruption, less black money and less fake money, which is also a big issue that we are facing, then it is a bold step and we are in the right direction."

Deepika Padukone called it an exceptional move. "I think it was high time (we did it). I would not like to comment much. But I think it was an exceptional move by the government... I would like to congratulate them on that."

Kareena also praised Modi’s demonetisation move, saying, "It is a very good decision. When asked if she was facing inconvenience in currency exchange, she said, "I am only carrying Rs 2000 note, I don't have Rs 500, 1000 note!"

Actress Tamannaah Bhatia said, "I know the common man is facing a lot of difficulty because of this condition but I know for a fact that it is for a good cause and eventually this will turn out to be the right thing to do. From a long run perspective this is the best thing to have happened.

Aditi Rao Hydari said the common man is facing trouble with the sudden currency demonitisation but it will be benefitted in the long run. "People like vegetable vendors and others are facing inconvenience and I am trying to help them. But it is a very good step by the government."

Taapsee said it is a risk worth taking. "People will face problems obviously, but I think it should be good for the longer run... It is like an experiment, I don't know if it will work or not but it is worth giving a shot.
