However, after being trolled on Twitter, though the actress hasn’t deleted her tweet as yet, Neha officially aplogized explaining the real intention behind posting the tweet. “The intention of my tweet was never to demean or personally attack anyone. It was the mere frustration of a helpless citizen of Mumbai. I’ve tried to take the high road on the outcome and ignore the people who’ve abused me and my family and nauseam online. But I was intimidated as protestors stood outside my house. I am grateful to our police for protecting us and request people to see that my words were about a subject and not a person. My goal was never to hurt anyone’s sentiments. I have wholeheartedly & consistently supported the government’s movements like “Yoga Day” and “Swachh Bharat” as I will do in the future as well. I hope we can focus on the issues that matter and that my appeal to improve our civic amenities is taken in the right way,” said the Phas Gaya Re Obama actress.
Neha Dhupia isn’t the only celeb who criticized Narendra Modi’s government. Popular television actress Shruti Seth also questioned PM Modi’s “Selfie With Daughter” campaign, for which she too was lashed widely by supporters of Modi government.
