PATNA: Bageshwar Dam in Bihar is currently holding the much-awaited Hanuman Katha led by Dean Dhirendra Shastri. Today is the last day of the event, and many believers gather to meet him. Amidst the excitement, Bhojpuri’s popular actress Akshara Singh also made her way to Patna to meet Baba Bageshwar.
Akshara shared a video of herself singing her devotional song in front of her Baba Bageshwar on Instagram. The song’s heartfelt lyrics read, “Main Sharan Tihari, Raj Rakiyo Maa is Dukya Ki Sharan Tihari,” expressing her devotion to Baba Bageshwar. As Akshara sang devotional songs, she seemed completely absorbed in the spiritual connection. Her father Bipin Singh and Union Minister Ashwini Chobei also accompanied her to Baba’s court.
But after Akshara Singh shared a video of her, some started trolling her. Some of her criticized her for promoting her superstitions, while others questioned why she indulged in her show despite her role as a star. Yet another quipped that she was a smart way to become famous. It is worth mentioning that Bageshwar Baba is a revered priest of the Bageshwar Dham in Gada village, Chattarpur district, Madhya Pradesh. In 2022, he was accused of spreading his superstition during a program in Nagpur.
Still, many who watched the video praised Akshara Singh for his sincere dedication. The actress’s visit to meet Baba Bageshwar received widespread attention and highlighted the intersection of societal perspectives on her faith, celebrity culture and religious practices.
