Politics and Bollywood do go hand-in-hand occasionally. As the din and celebrations of post Lok Sabha result declaration continue, Twitter and our tinsel town remained engaged in political debates and sparring. After the Sonam-Suchitra Krishnamurthy face-off on twitter recently, this time 'Raanjhanaa' and 'Tanu Weds Manu' actress Swara Bhaskar found herself at the receiving end of hate tweet.
Earlier, Swara posted tweets that questioned the celebrations of Modi's victory and recalled the 2002 Gujarat riots. Following these her Twitter page was flooded with angry hate tweets by Modi supporters many of which resorted to personal insult and jibes, name-calling and some to even abusive language.
The actress seemed unfazed and tweeted again to say, "No, I don't have a Muslim boyfriend. I have a brain, an education and an opinion. #sorryicanthink And yes, i did vote! :)"
Swara who was recently seen anchoring Shyam Benegal's TV series Samvidhaan: Making of the Indian Constitution seems to take her fundamental rights to freedom of expression quite seriously.
