This was swiftly followed by a boycott Bollywood trend on X, which Pooja Bhatt noticed and criticized. She condemned the recurring trend that perpetually targets the industry for ‘collective outspokenness’.

After a short while, she reposted the same caption and remarked, “As does the gaslighting in the comments. So predictable. So devoid of any iota of creativity.”

Additional information
Alia, who is Pooja’s half-sister, shared on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday and reposted a message by @themotherhoodhome stating, “All children deserve love. All children deserve safety. All children deserve peace. All children deserve life. And all mothers should be able to offer their children these things (red heart doodle).” Alia added in the caption, “#AllEyesOnRafah.”

Kareena Kapoor also used her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to re-share a post from UNICEF’s official Instagram account. In the post, Executive Director Catherine Russell denounced the killing of children and families in Rafah, describing the act as “unconscionable.” Varun Dhawan also shared the “All Eyes on Rafah” image on his Instagram Stories.

Some additional celebrities who have shown their solidarity include Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Triptii Dimri, Madhuri Dixit, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Dia Mirza, and Swara Bhasker.

Israeli bombardment and airstrikes claimed the lives of at least 37 individuals, most of whom were seeking refuge in tents, near the southern Gaza city of Rafah overnight and on Tuesday — targeting the identical zone where strikes had sparked a lethal fire days earlier in a camp for displaced Palestinians — according to eyewitnesses, emergency personnel, and hospital representatives.
