Actor Vivek Oberoi on Wednesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has risked his own political career by demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes in an attempt do something unique for the country.

“Our country has become like instant noodles. We want all things at once. Our Prime Minister has taken a big risk. He has risked his political legacy for doing something unique for our country. This is what I feel,” Vivek said here when asked to comment on Modi’s demonetisation move.

The actor was speaking at a function here to announce the second edition of the Marathi Filmfare Awards.

Listing the advantages of the decision, the 40-year-old actor said, “The common man will be benefited by the money which is getting deposited in banks. People will get loan easily and the banks’ interest rates are going to drop, which will produce more work opportunities.

“It is right that we are going through a little difficulty now. But this is a kind of war and after this ‘labour pain’, a new India is going to emerge. In the long run, our country will witness fast-track growth,” he said.

Recently, Nana Patekar also supported Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move, saying it will taste like sweet tea for the honest in the country. He was referring to PM Modi’s comment at a recent rally where he said banning Rs 500 and Rs 1000 note ban was like his kadak chai which the rich won’t like.

    No body has risked the political career .The govt has taken advantage of majority in the house and weak opposition and has created problem for common people .Earlier also similar steps were taken ,did corruption end or black money disappear or bank rates came down .People have no option and even after suffering may forget their pain,which the political parties are very well aware and thus do whatever they want to do ,irrespective of its consequences on the life of common people.Has not the film industry run on black money for several decades and must be using same even now to a limited extent .Have the rich and powerful made established their businesses and madecproperties without use of black money. Have the political leaders become so rich without corruption .Everybody who is trying to show that he is holy cow ,at some or the other point has been volved in corruption and has used black money for various purposes and some of those who have come in streamline over a period of time are labelling others as corrupt and supporters of those who have unaccounted money .

    I am proud of all the actors who have stood up for our PM! The likes of AK and Mamta will always bark... they never want to see the progress India is making as they hope to become PM of India someday. Dream on jokers... the country is waking up and will throw you away in the next elections. Jai Hind!

    What an . Now the banks and money lenders will get rich and have their own black money. It will never benefit the poor. What a naive moron Vivek is. Modi converted all his black money to gold before making currency illegal and void.
