It’s World Kindness Day, and all India has been talking about over the past few weeks is intolerance. So celebrating kindness might not be such a bad idea. We can definitely do with some pleasantries.

We at The Quint decided to do just that — be kind to celebrities, and hope they like it.

The Chief Minister of Delhi has had a tough year. Arvind Kejriwal has done enough damage to his party (suspending some key ministers) and the city (Delhi drops in cleanliness report), so we’ve got nothing to say.

But today, we would like to gift Kejriwal and his partymen tickets for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo — kyunki har parivar rahe prem ke saath!

And remember to wear something warm sir, we wouldn’t want our Chief Minister to fall ill. After all, it’s getting cold. (Cough, cough!)

Tiger Shroff

Don’t worry Tiger, this is not an article mocking your safedi ki chamkar skin colour. Not your fault. And you aren’t at fault for your name too (papa Shroff, how cruel of you). Let’s give our sher a break!

We hope Fair and Handsome will be kind enough to make you their brand ambassador. This will also save the company from some law suits!

Rahul Gandhi

We are proud to say that mama’s boy Pappu has become a true neta. Look at the Bihar results. Without doing much, he still managed to make Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav’s Mahagathbandhan come together. Only a neta can do that.

Pappu pass hogaya!

Sonam Kapoor

Not just us, even Twitter will be kind to you today Sonam. You can write anything you want, and it does not matter if it makes sense, or not (something which you always do). Nobody will say a word.

By the way, the word “kind”, according to the Cambridge online dictionary can mean generous, ​helpful, and ​thinking about other people’s ​feelings. We thought we should let you know. #JustSaying

Shatrughan Sinha


Unfortunately, Shotgun Sinha has been shot down by his own partymen. The actor has been deprived of a high-profile designation, and was made a ‘bahaari’ during his own state election (Bihar). It comes as no surprise that Shatrughan Sinha is “barking” at his karyakartas.

Come on party people, be kind to him today.
