Northeast always had to put an extra effort to make its presence felt in the so-called ‘mainland India’ and instances prove that there is still a long way to go.
Recently in a programme named India’s Got Talent, airing on Colors, judges Kirron Kher and Karan Johar were gifted an Arunachali Headgear and an Assamese Jaapi respectively. The later posted a video of them in Instagram talking about their gifts.
Watch the video here:
However, Kirron wore the headgear but Karan apparently ‘did not have the guts’ to wear it. This move of one of Bollywood’s known names has hurt the sentiments of people of Northeast.
Northeasterns were seen commenting about how the judges’ attitude towards the gifts had hurt their sentiments and which also portrayed their lack of knowledge about the Northeast India.
