Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma on Tuesday (July 28) came into focus on social media when she got the spellings of former president APJ Abdul Kalam wrong while expressing condolences on his demise.
APJ Abdul Kalam died on Monday (July 27) after suffering cardiac arrest while delivering a lecture at a management school in Shillong.
Anushka Sharma spelt late president Kalam’s name incorrectly with a post on Twitter that read: “Very sad to hear about the passing of ABJ Kalam Azad. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP.”
Here is a print screen of Anushka’s tweet, which she immediately deleted:
However, she realised her mistake soon and tried to rectify it, but in vain. She got the name wrong again.
She wrote: “Very sad to hear about the passing of APJ Kalam Azad. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP.”
The actress, who deleted her previous tweets, got it right only in the third attempt.
“Very sad to hear about the passing of APJ Abdul Kalam. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP,” Anushka tweeted.
The “Dil Dhadakne Do” actress was criticised by the users of Twitter.
One user tweeted: “@AnushkaSharma 3rd time you are tweeting…I hope this time won’t be deleted ..: #RIPAbdulKalam”.
While another wrote: “Congrats @anushkasharma for getting it right in just 3 attempts…great achievement considering Bollywood standards”.
