On Monday, actor Randeep Hooda published a photo of himself with his pet dog on Instagram. What made the film unique was his pet’s participation in the actor’s puja ceremony.
“Sanskari dog alert! #Bambi #MondayMotivation #DogsOfInstragam #adoptdontshop,” Randeep Hooda captioned the photo. Randeep was pictured standing in front of a table with his hands folded, surrounded by deity figurines. Randeep is closed-eyed, and his pet stands next him, two front legs resting on the table, as if it, too, is praying.
A number of individuals reacted to the image. Actor Adil Hussain merely wrote “aww” in the comments section to express his sentiments. “You have trained him well, sir,” an admirer said. “Cute,” remarked another fan. Many others tagged the post with fire and heart emojis.
Randeep Hooda was recently chastised after an old video of him making disrespectful remarks about Mayawati, the leader of the Bahujan Samaj Party, appeared online. The nine-year-old video showed him cracking a “joke” that social media users condemned as casteist and sexist. It quickly became popular on the internet.
Randeep was most recently seen in the film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, in which Salman Khan plays the lead. In the upcoming film UnfairNLovely, he will be featured alongside Ileana D’Cruz.
