Amid clashes and rising death tolls in Punjab and Haryana, following the Gurmeet Ram Rahim verdict, a verbal spat engaging two most-discussed celebrities took the Twitteratti by storm. A Gentleman actor- Sidharth Malhotra-had expressed his concern over the crisis in his own filmy way, which was not taken by many in a sportingly. He had Tweeted: To all the people of Haryana, please stay safe. Hope you can see our film soon.
The Twitteratti took no time to blame him for an "I don't care attitude", calling this form of promotion "disgusting" and "shameless". However, what struck the actor most was Omar Abdullah's Tweet against the actor.
I thought a couple of my tweets may have been a bit thoughtless when protestors started dying but this takes the bloody cake. https://t.co/DqW5nFT1Hv— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) August 25, 2017
