‘I Don’t Pay Attention To Cowards’: Anushka Sharma on Being Trolled For Getting Dr APJ Abdul Kalam’s Name Wrong


The 27-year-old actress faced the wrath of Twitteraties soon after her incorrect spelling of late former President APJ Abdul Kalam as she mourned his loss. This too, ironically, happened after she had made an empowering statement about only wanting positive people on her Twitter. However, Anushka made it a point to ensure that her intentions don’t get lost in translation. She took to Twitter to post, “It was an honest mistake. My intention…my feelings can’t be misconstrued. But I know with what intention I was writing.”

It all started on the day of the Missile Man’s demise as many B-town celebs took to their microblogging sites to express their griefs, including Anushka. Although the actress immediately realized her error and tried to rectify it, her next post also consisted of a typo in spelling his name.

The NH 10 actor retorted at social media users who lambasted her over the error, dubbing them “cowards”. “I don’t want to pay attention to cowards who hide behind computer screens…with fake names. If you want to say things come and say it on my face,” Anushka added.

On another note, the Dil Dhadakne Do star later also tweeted her stance on another social issue, “I would not endorse products that propagate racist and sexist (beliefs)….and propagate social taboo. I don’t want to endorse products that propagate fair skin and all. I will not propagate anything that says this is right or wrong.”

Quite proud of her no-nonsense attitude!
