The hotly-disputed Ayodhya case verdict was announced by the Indian Supreme Court on Saturday, unleashing a wave of celebration over prominent Bollywood celebrities who came forth welcoming it.
Amongst the celebrities cheering on the Ayodhya verdict is filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, actors Vivek Oberoi, Koena Mitra, Huma Qureshi, Kunal Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu and Farhan Akhtar.
They subsequently fell prey to backlash over promoting Hindu nationalism and extremism in the country.
The Indian Supreme Court on Saturday ruled that the disputed Babri Mosque land should be given to the Hindus, while ordering the Muslims be allotted an alternate land as a replacement for the destroyed Babri Mosque.
The Indian top court issued the order while reading out its verdict on the ownership of a centuries-old religious site claimed by both majority Hindus and Muslims.
