Akshay Kumar reacts to Richa Chadha's 'Galwan Says Hi' tweet, says 'hurts to see this'


Richa Chadha landed in trouble for a tweet. A couple of days ago, the actress reacted to a statement by Lt.General Upendra Dwivedi that the Indian Army is ready to execute orders like taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Richa had responded by writing, "Galwan says hi," and it didn't sit down well with people who claimed she insulted and mocked the Indian Army. Several celebrities condemned Richa's now-deleted tweet. 

Akshay Kumar was among the celebrities who slammed Richa for her tweet. Sharing a screenshot of her now-deleted reply, the superstar said he was hurt to read such a comment on the Indian army. "Hurts to see this. Nothing ever should make us ungrateful towards our armed forces. Woh hain toh aaj hum hain," Akshay tweeted.

After being criticised for her tweet, Richa issued an apology. She wrote in a statement, "Even though it can never be my intention in the least, if the 3 words which are being dragged into a controversy have offended or hurt anyone, I apologise and also say that it would sadden me if even unintentionally my words have triggered this feeling in my brothers in the fauj (army) of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part."

She further mentioned in her statement that her grandfather, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Indian Army took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war. "My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It's in my blood. A whole family is affected when a son is martyred or even injured while saving the nation which is made up of people like us and I personally know how it feels. It is an emotive issue for me," Richa stated.
