Yesterday Anushka Sharma made an awkward mistake by calling our late ex-President APJ Abdul Kalam Azad, the actress had to face a lot of flak for her tweet. Some calling her out for ignorance, and most just dissing her acting skills and her relationship with Virat Kohli (because THAT’S what defines her doesn’t it?). Farhan Akhtar too made a similar mistake in his tribute to India’s missile man.
He quickly rectified his mistake as well.
Deeply saddened to hear about the demise of one of the most inspirational Indians of our time, former President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. RIP.

Farhan was thankfully saved from the onslaught of hate on social media, sadly Anushka wasn’t. I think it’s an honest mistake, especially when people make SUCH mistakes.
