Uday Chopra causes stir on social media with tweets on Karnataka governor, then makes Shashi Tharoor proud


Actor Uday Chopra may have decided to take a sabbatical from Bollywood, but he caused quite a stir on social media on Tuesday with his intelligent tweets on Karnataka elections. His tweets also proved just how politically aware the Dhoom actor is.

Just when everyone was speculating on the role of Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala, Uday tweeted, “I just googled the governor of Karnataka https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vajubhai_Vala … BJP guy and RSS hmmm I guess we all know what’s gonna happen. (sic)”

Uday’s tweet sent the supporters of BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi into a frenzy as they began to incessantly troll him. However, far from being fazed by Twitter trolling, Uday kept coming up with even more intelligent replies, amply indicating that he was no novice in understanding the nuances of Indian politics.

For example, while responding to criticism from a user, who said that ‘As per the Indian Law the party which gets maximum seats is invited first to claim for making government (sic),’ Uday wrote, “That’s not what happened in Goa and Manipur. I watch the news just like you.” Uday was highlighting how despite emerging as a a party with fewer seats, the BJP had gone on to form governments in Manipur and Goa with the help of friendly governors.

Another user wrote that ‘a looser should keep mouth shut when he has no knowledge about anything except his baap ka paissa. (sic)” To which, the actor exhibited another instance of utter wit when he wrote, “Not really. In a democracy a loser is allowed to have opinions too.”

And the actor kept responding to his trolls like a real boss. Uday called it a day on Twitter with a tweet that would make even Shashi Tharoor, the undisputed king of English vocabulary, proud of him. Uday signed off for the day with this tweet; “I think the fleestalkens are definitely becoming fluggeristic due to my stelnaalens, but what can one do. It’s a Tuesday!”

Uday’s Tuesday encounter with his social media trolls abundantly proved that the actor was capable of giving many so-called political pundits in India a run for their money.
