Actor Soha Ali Khan on Sunday joined the voice of dissent against the exit of Raghuram Rajan as RBI Governor which she feels is a ‘profound loss’ to the nation.
The Rang De Basanti actor tweeted “Profound loss for India that @RBIGov #RaghuramRajan has been forced to exit. He can only help those who want to help themselves. Shame.”

Her views, however, didn’t go down well with many who trolled her and questioned her Economics knowledge. Many even doubted if the actor even knows the full form of RBI.
Dear @sakpataudi, what does the @RBIGov do? What does RBI do?

@sakpataudi @RBIGov Why do you have to poke your long nose into everything? Concentrate on your area of expertise.

However, a few stood by the actor, who has a Masters degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics.
