Raveena Tandon on Richa Chadha issue: Please don’t generalise, it generates hate towards film industry
Swara Bhasker also tweeted in support of Richa
The controversy around Richa Chadha’s now-deleted tweet on the Galwan Valley clash is gaining traction. Now, Raveena Tandon has reacted on the matter. Even Swara Bhasker commented on the issue and wrote in favour of Richa.
Taking to Twitter, a journalist shared a screenshot of Richa’s tweet and wrote, "For last four decades, ISI money has flown into Bollywood. Sometimes overtly through the underworld, sometimes covertly through its assets. Nothing else explains the existence of such blood traitors… Richa Chadha."
Responding to him, Raveena said, "Please do not club together all or generalise. This generates hate towards the Hindi film industry. All along there have been and are strong patriots in the industry who get thrown under the bus by a few and all good work done, is then met with spite and venom."
Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Swara wrote, "@RichaChadha strength and love to you! (blue heart emoji)." Earlier, Akshay Kumar, Prakash Raj, Anupam Kher, Kay Kay Menon, Paresh Rawal and Vivek Agnihotri had shared their two cents on the issue.
Reacting to Northern Army Commander Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi's statement that 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", Richa had written "Galwan says hi".
The comment was a reference to the 2020 military clash between India and China in the Galwan Valley border. Richa later deleted the tweet amid political and social media backlash.
Richa had also issued a public apology after deleting the tweet where she wrote, “A whole family is affected when their 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.”
Later, the actor also tried to put across her point by sharing a statement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi where he talked about peaceful conversations between India and Pakistan.
