MUMBAI: Indian television actress Saumya Tandon, who is best known for playing Angrezi Mem in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, has slammed Pakistani actress Veena Malik for her insensitive tweet against IAF pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, who is currently in Pakistani custody.
Veena took to social media and shared a picture of Abhinandan. Mocking him, she tweeted, “Abhi Abhi Tu Ayo Ho…Achi Mehmaan Nawazi Ho GI Aap Ki.”
This clearly didn’t go down well with many social media users with Saumya being one of them.
Saumya replied to Veena’s tweet by writing, “Can’t imagine someone like him tweeting like this. Sad really sad.” [sic]
Soon in another tweet she corrected ‘him’ to ‘her’, and wrote, “Yes it’s her not him, but doesn’t change the disgust this tweet is spreading.”
Later, Soumya wrote, “We are against terrorism, against #PulwamaAttack, what are these so many haters on social media for, what is their agenda. So much hatred, disturbing, repulsive, heartbreaking. Fight is against terrorism not civilians of any country. Hope better sense will prevail.”
Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker too disapproved Veena’s disgraceful tweet. She wrote, “Veena ji.. Shame on you & ur sick mindset. Your glee is just gross! Our officer is a hero – brave, gracious & dignified in the face of capture. At least some decency from that major in you army who was questioning #WingCommanderAbhinandan or the many Pakistanis suing 4 peace #sick”.
Pakistan is supposed to release Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman today, and India is eagerly waiting for his return. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had on Thursday announced that the captured IAF pilot will be freed on Friday as a “gesture of peace.”
