Taking to his Twitter handle on Wednesday, October 26, Kher shared pictures from Sunak’s interaction with King Charles III among other things. He penned a caption in Hindi, which loosely translates to, “The question is not whether @RishiSunak is a Hindu, a Muslim, a Sikh or a Christian. It should be a matter of pride that in the 75th year of our country’s independence, an originally Indian has become #PrimeMinister of the country, which ruled us for almost 200 years. Every Indian should celebrate this achievement! Jai Hind!”
सवाल यह नहीं कि @RishiSunak हिंदू है, मुसलमान है, सिख है या ईसाई है।गर्व की बात यह होनी चाहिए कि एक मूलतः भारतीय हमारे देश की आज़ादी के 75वें वर्ष में उस देश का #PrimeMinister बना है, जिसने हम पर लगभग 200 साल राज किया।Every Indian should celebrate this achievement! जय हिंद!🙏🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/nJVXSd2HGM
