Son of lyricist and leftist Javed Akhtar, the Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar was trolled for sending his message to Bhopal after a week of them already casting their vote.
The actor, referring to the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy, where an estimated 3,000 people died in what was one of the world’s worst industrial disasters, warned voters against Pragya Thakur’s candidature.
“Dear electorate of Bhopal, it’s time for you to save your city from another full-of-gas tragedy. #SayNoToPragya #SayNoToGodse #RememberTheMahatma #ChooseLoveNotHate,” tweeted Farhan Akhtar.
His request, however, is a week late! Bhopal has already voted in the 6th phase on May 12th.
Apart from the wrong timing, his pun on the Bhopal gas tragedy did not go down well with the netizens.
