New Delhi: Promoting his film A Gentleman went wrong for actor Siddarth Malhotra when he mixed his film promotions with the Ram Rahim rape case verdict
Riots and violence were expected as Dera Sacha Sauda chief's supporters gathered in many districts of Haryana and Punjab.
Since it was release day for the film A Gentleman, Sid cordially took it to twitter and wrote, "To all the people of Haryana, please stay safe. Hope you can see our film soon #Agentleman #PeaceAndLove", but the actor went wrong when he mixed two different situations.
Actors tweet evoked an instant reaction on Twitter, and numerous people including well-known journalists and celebrities accused the actor of being stupid.
Here're some of the best reactions:
Rahul Kanwal Managing Editor and Anchor of IndiaToday advised the actor to keep shut
One angry user asked people to boycott the film for the actor's shameless tweet
One twitter user went on to ask Sid is he is a gentleman.
One twitter user went on to advice Sid the way he could have wished peace in Haryana and promote his movie.
However, Sid, later on, explained his earlier tweet that it was made before the verdict at 12:55 PM but people still advised him not to use such situations to promote the movie
