Having understood the impact of social media, celebs these days have taken to this new platform to voice their opinions and interact with their fans.

Since the festival of colors is round the corner, the actress decided to spread a social message to her fans. She tweeted, “The irony of the times we live in: farmers commit suicide due to drought and people waste water to ‘play’ #Holi.Go ahead call me anti-Hindu.”
Contrary to her wishes, Dia got trolled and was called as a hypocrite instead. Things got ugly when she was being reminded of her past Holi celebrations and also the pending hefty water bill from the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply. It didn’t end here; Dia was also taken back to the times when she performed on rain dances using fake rains.

Dia Mirza’s attempt to spread a good message went for a toss. But the actress knew how to end the whole ranting and clarified that she plays Holi every year but doesn’t use water for the same.
Dia also shared a message stating that people in India fail to understand the difference between usage and wastage.
