On Tuesday, a sting operation titled Operation Karaoke carried by Cobra Post took the internet by storm. A bunch of familiar faces from the entertainment industry were exposed on camera as Cobrapost reporters approached them to generate social media posts in favour of political parties in exchange for money. To our dismay, none of them were seen or heard declining the offer. The list included Jackie Shroff, Vivek Oberoi, Sonu Sood, Shreyas Talpade, Mahima Chaudhuri, Koena Mitra, and Abhijit Bhattacharya to name a few.
But wait. While the internet seems disheartened at how opinions are bought and manipulated, there are a few who decided not to join the gang. As per a Twitter post by Cobrapost, a handful of actors i.e. Vidya Balan, Raza Murad, Arshad Warsi, and Saumya Tandon turned the offers down. They call them 'notable exceptions' and we agree!
Fans of the above actors are seen rejoicing it on Twitter, as they laud them for sticking to their principles and honesty.
