                      Modi thinks the actor's career was promising and that was cut short. Doesn't the PM think before tweeting? The actor had been at it for a quarter of a century and given scintillating performances and Modi the oaf thinks it was just promising. My dear duffer prime minister, the actor's career was promising many years ago. He had also delivered on that promise in the many roles he did. Tweet in Gujarati if your grasp of the nuances of the english language is so poor.

                          I Have watched so many Tamil movies where Mr. Mani has acted as a villan, and as a friend and also as a brother. All his actions were very perfect. I was shocked to hear the news of his ping away. MAY GOD BE WITH THE FAMILY MEMBERS AND GIVE THEM THE PEACE FROM ABOVE. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE. HE IS IN A BETTER PLACE- IN HEAVEN.

                                    Modi condoles the death of Malayalam movie actor, would this too annoy the anti-Modi brigade of Kerala?
