Akshay Kumar is 'hurt to see' Richa Chadha's tweet

Richa is facing massive backlash on social media after she reacted to an army commander's statement on taking Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) back with a reference to the Galwan clash with Chinese troops in 2020. Her tweet was called 'shameful' by the netizens and several politicians. She wrote, "Galwan Say Hi" while reacting to the statement of Lt General Upendra Dwivedi that the Indian Army is ready to execute orders like taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Now, Akshay has reacted to the same on Twitter. He wrote, "Hurts to see this. Nothing ever should make us ungrateful towards our armed forces. Woh hain toh aaj hum hain."

Richa Chadha's public apology

After she was called out on social media, the actress shared a public apology on Twitter. In her statement, Richa said that her intention was not to hurt or offend anyone. The statement read, "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 of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part.” She added that her grandfather, a Lieutenant Colonel, took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war in the 1960s. Her statement further read, “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.” 
 

Netizens have been tagging Mumbai Police to file an FIR against Richa. Earlier today, director Ashoke Pandit was seen at Juhu police station as he filed a complaint against Richa.

There\'s nothing wrong in what she wrote as everyone is entitled to their own opinion. That is what freedom of speech is all about. The same freedom of speech which also entitles a Canadian to comment on Indian army or India matters.

Shameful how everyone in comments actually support Richa? Are you guys out of your mind. Respect Akshay’s guys to call out what is wrong. This is what has become of secularism in India

She deleted the tweeted and apologised. What else can she do? He did not need to raise it and add to the hate.
