Cobrapost, which had shared most of the interaction with #BikaooBollywood, also shared what Sunny apparently said.
The report had named 36 people from the entertainment industry, apart from Sunny, it listed Shakti Kapoor, Vivek Oberoi, Mahima Chaudhary, Ameesha Patel, Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood and Rakhi Sawant and others as the ones who took the offer.
There were also video recordings of various celebrities that suggested they were not interested in supporting any political parties.
The web portal tweeted the same and wrote, “While we saw all these celebs succumbing to the lure of money and agreeing to indulge in this unethical and unlawful practice, there were some notable exceptions, though. When we approached Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi, Raza Murad and Saumya Tandon with our proposition, these celebs chose to go by their conscience and straightaway refused to play ball.”
