A host of Bollywood celebrities including Farhan Akhtar, Ayushmann Khurrana and Richa Chadha on Tuesday slammed the ban on beef in Maharashtra, saying it is a 'violation of human rights'. The bill banning cow slaughter in the state, pending for the past several years, on Monday received President Pranab Mukherjee's assent.

"#BeefBan is a violation of human rights. The govt cannot dictate what I eat. Seems like the 'democratic' constitution of India does not guarantee diversity. #BeefBan is a sad reflection of that," tweeted director Onir. Richa said, "I am a vegetarian. And banning beef is communal politics."

Stand-up comedian-actor Vir Das, while taking a dig at Indian politicians, said, "Dear Govt with beef, let's ban teeth.

"Beef faal baad! #kaminey," Ayushmann Khurrana said taking a cue from Vishal Bhardwaj's film "Kaminey", where the lead used to pronounce 's' as 'f'.
