In the midst of the ongoing Maldives controversy, social media has become a platform for celebrities to voice their opinions on supporting local travel destinations. A significant debate sparked after a post by a Maldives minister accused India of targeting the island nation, asserting a tough competition in beach tourism. This controversy arose just days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Lakshadweep.
Indian celebrities have rallied together on social media, advocating for the promotion of local beaches over foreign destinations. Notable figures such as legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and current Indian cricket team all-rounder Hardik Pandya have expressed their support for Indian travel destinations.
Sachin Tendulkar, reminiscing about his 50th birthday celebrations in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra, shared a video and a picture on social media. He praised the coastal town for its “gorgeous locations” and “wonderful hospitality,” emphasizing the beauty of India’s coastlines and pristine islands. Tendulkar’s post aligns with the ongoing push to explore and promote local beaches in India.
Hardik Pandya echoed similar sentiments, expressing his sadness over the negative comments about India. Highlighting the marine life and beautiful beaches of Lakshadweep, he declared it as the perfect getaway spot and a must-visit destination for his next holiday. Pandya’s post reinforces the message of exploring the incredible beauty that India has to offer.
Amidst this wave of social media activism, former Pakistan cricket team spinner Danish Kaneria joined the conversation with a cryptic one-word post on his official social media handle. Kaneria simply wrote “Lakshadweep” accompanied by a fire emoji, leaving followers speculating about the meaning behind his concise message.
As the controversy unfolds, social media continues to be a battleground for opinions and expressions, with celebrities using their influence to promote and support local travel destinations in India.
