Actor Ranveer Singh was trolled by Twitterati recently for saying in an interview that when he was a child, his family did not have a lot of money so they could only afford a trip to Singapore, Indonesia, and the United States. The actor’s statement made Twitter users ask him that what his definition of being ‘poor’ is. Simmba’s actor Ranveer’s statement was enough to hurt people’s sentiment as there are really poor people who do not even go out of their area and being poor and still going for abroad trips really made some Twitterati mock him.
Recalling his childhood days, Ranveer Singh in an interview with Condé Nast Traveller magazine had said, “We didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up. So, my parents would save up and save up for that one big summer holiday abroad; I remember going to Indonesia, Singapore, Italy, but most often it was the US–we had a lot of family there. And December was always Goa with my grandparents.”
Ranveer’s interview surfaced on social media and became viral in no time for his statement on being poor during his childhood days. The hashtag #YoRanveerSoPoor started trending on Twitter and one Twitter user also wrote, “If making annual trips abroad in the 90s was the doings of the poor, we need new adjectives for the economic status of 65% of our country’s population. #YoRanveerSoPoor.”
