Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had its first special screening in Mumbai and among those who watched the movie was the BJP spokesperson, Shaina NC.
Overwhelmed by Ranbir Kapoor’s performance in the film, Shaina tweeted tagging Ranbir’s actor dad Rishi Kapoor.
Her tweet read, “Rishiji @chintskap ur acting jeans clearly have forwarded to #ranbeerkapoor, he acted brilliantly in #ADHM, @AnushkaSharma performed well too.”
What Shaina perhaps intended to say that Rishi Kapoor’s acting ‘genes’ had been forwarded to Ranbir. But the BJP spokesperson’s use of jeans was quickly spotted by eagle-eyed Congress supporters on social media.
Faced with embarrassment, Shaina deleted her tweet, but by then the screenshots of her tweet had gone viral. And with that, some funny comments too.
Here is how Twitter users, predominantly Congress supporters reacted;
