April 21 : Varun Dhawan has been trolled for sharing a post on his Twitter handle. The actor not only deleted the tweet but also politely explained his action. While it seems that the actor had his heart at the right place, his post came at the wrong time.
The Coolie No. 1 actor tweeted a larger common DP made by one of his fans. The common DP, made by a fan for his birthday, featured all the characters of the actor in his films. In the graphic, the actor was seen in the iconic pose of the late English singer George Michael with his guiter. The common DP bore a message that read, “Donate plasma, save lives.”
While the actor shared the fan’s creation on Twitter with the caption, “Stay safe”, it was not received well by the netizens. Several Twitter users pointed out that the timing of the post was inappropriate when social media is getting flooded with pleas for help during the grave coronavirus situation. While netizens ask for help to get oxygen, medicines, hospital beds, etc, Varun’s fans found the actor’s post to be insensible. Varun explained, “Well it was to make someone happy who made the graphic and requested it but I guess this medium shouldn’t be used for that right now.” But one of his fans wrote, “Oh Varun. I thought you're one of the sensible ones.”
Another Twitter user wrote, “If you really want to make someone happy, do your bit by doing #SOS Tweets for the people in need. Your fans need you now more than ever. Your one RT for the needy might save a life. C'mon VD you can do it.”
Another Twitter user wrote, “I've been here on this hellsite for well over a decade now, but I don't think I've ever seen a tweet with soooo much cluelessness to unpack.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Varun has recently returned to Mumbai after wrapping the Arunachal Pradesh schedule of the film Bhediya.
