Mumbai–Bollywood celebrities such as Farhan Akhtar, Taapsee Pannu and Madhur Bhandarkar on Saturday hailed the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Ayodhya case, and requested people to respect the court’s decision.
The Supreme Court on Saturday directed the Centre to form a trust within three months, which will build a temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
The Sunni Waqf Board, which was a party to the seven-decade-old title suit, should be given an alternate five-acre land at some other suitable place for construction of a mosque, a five-member bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, said in a unanimous judgement.
Soon after the verdict #AyodhyaCase started trending. Bollywood celebrities, too, took to Twitter to share their opinion on the historic judgement.
Here are some reactions from B-Town:
Taapsee Pannu: #AYODHYAVERDICT hail Supreme Court! Let the needful be done. Now moving towards working on issues that will help our nation become the BEST place to LIVE in.
