Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar’s goof-up on elections in Bhopal Lok Sabha electorate in Madhya Pradesh has invited him derision in social media.
The actor was under the impression that Bhopal was going to polls in the final point of parliamentary elections on Sunday. Accordingly, he made a plea to electorates of Bhopal to exercise their authorization on Sunday. He had perhaps no knowledge that Bhopal had already gone to polls on May 12.
A tweet by Mr. Farhan said, “Dear electorate of Bhopal, it’s time for you to save your city from another full-of-gas tragedy. #Choose Love Not Hate”.
Members of Twitterati ambushed on him for making an appeal to voters of Bhopal a week after elections were held in the constituency. He was seemingly referring to Pragya’s recent disgraceful statement describing Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a patriot.
The actor-filmmaker seems to not be aware that the elections to the Madhya Pradesh constituency have been completed in the previous phase itself. Netizens pointed it out to him. And now after much-backlash, Farhan Akhtar snubbed to cede an inch from his statement, and issued a rather defiant statement saying, “Humne taareek galat samjhi toh galaa pakad liya, Jisne itihaas galat samjha use galey laga rahe ho. #priorities”.
Well, being a public person, it is important that you have an eye for details before sharing something in public. What do you all think?
