Payal Rohatgi who has kept herself away from the silver screen from quite some time has landed herself in the soup once again. On Tuesday, the actress was into headlines for making an insensitive remark towards Kerala floods. She took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to criticise the people of Kerala for not banning the cow slaughter in the state. She wrote in her tweet, “#cowslaughter is NOT banned in #kerala. Dear Kerala people and politicians of Kerala, not good to hurt the sentiments of #Hindus. If u openly do that, sorry to sound but God also openly does it.. God is one ☝️ but u can’t hurt religious faith like this.”
After her tweet, she became the latest victim of the online trolls and social media users called her statement to be ‘nonsense remark’. Many social media users slammed her saying that there are better ways to be in a limelight while some took a dig at her film career.
Payal reverted back with a befitting reply to the troll but this time only to take a dig at Swara Bhaskar’s masturbation scene from her latest film Veere Di Wedding. She replied to one of the trolls, “Let me be #flop so what. I can’t have my views oh sorry I need to do masturbation scenes and hold placards of #RapeinDevistan campaign to be #successful OR maybe have a husband who shoots porn. IDIOTS. NO maybe be a part of #castingcouch or better change my parents .”
Soon after Payal’s tweet, Swara too joined the troll bandwagon and replied to her tweet. She wrote, “Hi Payal! I hope you are well too 🙂 🙂 🙂 Stay happy sister! ❣️.”
On the professional front, Swara Bhaskar will be next seen digital series called It Is Not That Simple season 2 opposite Sumeet Vyas.
