अरे ई हमरा फैजल तो बाईपोलर निकला बे !— TheRichaChadha (@RichaChadha) December 27, 2018
Referencing 'Gangs of Wasseypur' where Richa played Nawaz's (Faisal) mother, Chadha tweeted what can be roughly translated as 'Our Faisal turned out to be bipolar'.
The tweet comes after the Nawaz-starrer Thackeray's trailer revealed the actor essaying a controversial chracter and plot-line. The upcoming film has been accused by many of encouraging hate against south Indians.
Nawazuddin has repeated 'Uthao lungi bajao pungi' (lift the lungi and *'#$ him) in the film #Thackeray. Clearly hate speech against South Indians... In a film glorifying the person who said it! Are you planning to make money out of this propaganda? Stop selling hate! Scary stuff!— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) December 26, 2018
Chadha's tweet has been shared over 700 times and has over 3,000 reactions.
