Siddharth Malhotra’s tweet about ram rahim verdict is extremely insensitive
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

Actor Siddharth Malhotra tweeted about dera sacha sauda where he was very insensitive and asked people if there is a problem then how are they going to watch his film A Gentleman. As the verdict on Ram Rahim is out, supporters of Gurmeet Ram Rahim have attacked the streets so much that army has been called. Article 144 has been declared in most of Haryana and Punjab, where Siddharth Malhotra worries if people will be able to go and see his “film”. A Gentleman which stars Jacqueline Fernandez as well has released yesterday and buzz around that film is close to nothing. Media immediately picked up on Malhotra’s tweet and people started calling him tone-deaf about what’s happening in the country. 250 have been injured more than 30 killed and country is on a verge of going back to the time of Bhindrewala.

Celebrities should understand that with great powers come great responsibilities and they should choose words carefully. After all this, the worst part of the tweet was Siddharth’s clarification, where he said that the tweet came before the verdict. Someone should tell Malhotra that this does not make it any better. Even the before the verdict he got aware of the stones pelting and therefore he took the concern to tweet, but nothing at all is above and beyond the release of a film. Omar Abdullah and many others have disliked his thoughts about the situation in country and followers of Gurmeet Ram Rahim also asked to boycott his film.
