Akshay Kumar reacts to Richa Chadha's 'Galwan says hi' tweet
Richa had earlier deleted the tweet and also issued an apology via Twitter
We had previously reported that actor Richa Chadha had reacted to Northern Army Commander Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi's statement via Twitter. Retweeting his tweet about how the army is "always ready" for any order to take back parts of Kashmir illegally occupied by Pakistan and "would give them a befitting reply", the actor had written "Galwan says hi".
Richa then deleted the tweet and issued an apology in which she wrote, "Even though it can never be my intention in the least, if the 3 words which are being dragged into a controversy have offended or hurt anyone, I apologise and also say that it would sadden me if even unintentionally my words have triggered this feeling in my brothers in the fauj (army) of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part. As a Lt. Col, he took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war, in 1960s. My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It's in my blood. A whole family is affected when a son is martyred or even injured while saving the nation which is made up of people like us and I personally know how it feels. It is an emotive issue for me."
Now, actor Akshay Kumar has reacted to the deleted tweet. Sharing a screenshot of the deleted tweet, the actor tweeted, "Hurts to see this. Nothing ever should make us ungrateful towards our armed forces. Woh hain toh aaj hum hain."
As expected, the tweet has now gone viral and it's not clear if Richa would reply to this tweet. Richa Chadha last appeared in The Great Indian Murder. She recently got married to her longtime boyfriend Ali Fazal. The couple is producing the upcoming film, Girls Will be Girls. Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, will be seen in the Hindi remake of the hit Tamil film Soorarai Pottru.
