Actor and producer Uday Chopra has often been at the receiving end on Twitter. And this time it's for Karnataka Assembly elections 2018 results.

Chopra came under fire immediately after he posted a tweet citing the political affiliation of Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala.

Sharing Vajubhai Vala's Wikipedia page link in a tweet, Chopra referred to him as the "BJP-RSS Guy".

"I just googled the governor of Karnataka BJP guy and RSS hmmm I guess we all know what’s gonna happen," Chopra wrote on his Twitter page.

For the uninitiated, Vajubhai Vala, the former Gujarat BJP leader had once vacated his seat for Narendra Modi and later served as Finance Minister in CM Modi’s cabinet. As for Chopra, his tweet didn't go down too well with the Twitterati and he was massively trolled.

With the ongoing bashing, Chopra further tweeted saying, "Ha! So many trolls on my timeline suddenly. I agree I am no one of consequence but I am still an Indian and I care deeply about my country."

"How dare I have an opinion opposed to yours," he wrote in his concluding tweet.

When the BJP formed the government at the Centre in 2014 and Modi finally ascended the high seat in Delhi, Vala was rewarded for keeping the BJP fortress intact and was made the Governor of Karnataka.
