Prime News, National (New Delhi), Jan 10:- Rang De Basanti actor Siddharth is receiving brickbats on social media for his reply to a tweet of ace badminton player Saina Nehwal which was made in reference to PM Narendra Modi’s convoy’s security breach in Punjab’s Ferozepur on January 5. Some protesters blocked a route and forced Modi’s convoy to spend about 15-20 minutes on a flyover. After the PM’s rally in the region was cancelled due to the lapse in security, a huge row has stirred up.
As news of PM’s security breach surfaced, Nehwal tweeted, “No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists. #BharatStandsWithModi #PMModi (sic).”
Siddharth wrote in response to Nehwal’s tweet, “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India (sic).”
Netizens trolled Siddharth for his apparent ‘sexist’ remark on the Olympic medallist. Some even called him ‘misogynist’ for his use of innuendos and said the comment was not made in good taste. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
