Why was Sridevi wrapped in Tricolour? Questions MNS Chief Raj Thackeray

Sridevi‘s mortal remains were wrapped in Tricolour and given state honour before she was cremated. It was a decision made by the State Government, but MNS chief Raj Thackeray has now questioned this decision of the Government.

While addressing a rally, Raj Thackeray exclaimed, “What did she do for the country that her body was wrapped in the tricolour?”

According to him, this apparently was the move of the Government to shift focus from Nirav Modi scam.

Sridevi who died on February 24 in a bathtub of a hotel room in Dubai was cremated on February 28 in Mumbai’s Pawan Hans crematorium. It took almost four days for the family to bring her mortal remains back to the country. (Also Read: Janhvi thanks Madhuri Dixit for stepping into Sridevi’s shoes for Karan Johar’s next)

VIDEO: Bobby Deol gets a peck on his cheek from Anil Kapoor while Salman gets nothing

Life of a Bollywood celebrity is like an open book. Be it them having a gala time with their family or be it them shooting for a movie, paparazzi surrounds them all the time. And looks like the team of ‘Race 3’ is not only having a great time shooting for the flick, but they are equally enjoying doing all things naughty.

So it happened that we bumped into a video where the three lads from the ‘Race 3’ franchise were seen quite in an unusual mood. And now you would ask us, what does unusual mean, so basically in the said video, we see Anil Kapoor kissing Bobby Deol on his cheek while the Bhaijaan of Bollywood gets nothing. *we meant not even a hug from Anil ji*

You don’t trust us? Have a look at the video below:

Aren’t the boys having a great time with each other? *hehehe* (Also Read: Race 3: Meet Jacqueline Fernandez aka Jessica, a perfect combination of beauty and power)
