Actor Dia Mirza early on Wednesday found herself at the receiving end of Twitter trolls after her congratulatory message to Indian Nationalist Congress President Rahul Gandhi had a message for him. On Tuesday, Congress emerged victorious in the recently concluded assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Telangana, and Chattisgarh respectively.
The unexpected victory by Rahul's party was celebrated with a major gathering outside the party headquarters during the day, followed by bursting of crackers in the evening. This didn't go well with Dia Mirza who took to Twitter to congratulate Rahul for the results but also urged him to celebrate it without bursting the crackers suggesting that it was not good for nature. Little did she know that her words would cause burns!
In reply to her tweet, Twitterati questioned her as to where she was when Priyanka Chopra did the same after her wedding to Hollywood star Nick Jonas in Jodhpur. Post desi girl Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' wedding on December 2, the sky was lit up with fire crackers in different colors and it continued for several minutes.
Probably you should also ask some asthmatic individuals in your industry to set an example, by walking the talk. 😃
Dia is widely know for her social awareness activities, mostly related to mother nature and her message to the Congress chief was a valid one, but one can’t be selection about who they call out and don’t, right?
