It’s a big day for India. After the long and highly anticipated Lok Sabha Elections 2019, all eyes were set on 23 May 2019, the day of election results. The verdict of the Indian general elections will be revealed shortly as and when the process of counting polls in each constituency is completed. However, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leading the count, celebrities from the world of film and television have already started congratulating PM Modi while some are tweeting their disappointment too.
This year, we saw several stars take the political plunge and contest elections from various constituencies including the debut of Urmila Matondkar and Sunny Deol. Veteran actors Shatrughan Sinha, Kirron Kher, Hema Malini, Jaya Prada amongst others have spent a good amount of time in politics now. With BJP sweeping seats and Congress clinging onto every single ray of hope, check out reactions on social media by celebrities:

The Accidental Prime Minister actor Anupam Kher expressed his happiness with BJP’s win by sharing a video of his mother.
Mom’s congratulatory Video note to Prime Minister @narendramodi & his team. She is repeating, “मैंने बोला था”। Difficult for her to contain her sense of triumph. She has taken it personally. But that is exactly how the whole country has taken it – personally.😍😎🇮🇳 #DulariRocks pic.twitter.com/BBLFd7XVbh

Vivek Oberoi, star of Narendra Modi’s biopic, tweeted in support too.
To all the politicians who were united by their hate against @narendramodi. A humble request to you all – please spend less time hating #Modi and more time loving #Bharat🇮🇳. India needs a sensible opposition for a healthy democracy. Jai Hind 🇮🇳 #ElectionResults2019 #ModiPhirSe pic.twitter.com/KWthkLltIH

It is time for many of us to understand the changed narrative of our times. People have voted and their vote is for a firm and stable government at the centre. Was there any need for the violent, vitriolic and personal campaign run by parties, leaders and media?
