Did you know, Sonam Wangchuk also happens to be the man who inspired the character of ‘Phungsuk Wangdu’ played by Aamir Khan in the movie 3 Idiots. He recently released a video on Youtube titled, ‘China Ko Jawaab Sena Degi Bullet Se, Naagrik Dengey Wallet Se’.
In this video, Wangchuk said that apart from the soldiers, the citizens should also counter China. He substantiated on the ways that the citizens can leave an impact. He said, “Is baar Bharat ki bullet power se zyada wallet power kaam aayegi. (This time the wallet power will play a more important role than the bullet.)” He additionally also went on to state that China makes almost Rs 5 lakh crores from its business with our country every year and this money is used against us at the borders to fight our soldiers.
Apart from this, Milind Soman continues to post inspirational and motivational content on Instagram. He was last seen in Amazon Prime’s Four More Shots Please! who played the character, Dr Aamir Warsi.
