Richa Chadha’s Galwan Statment Leads to ‘Boycott Fukrey 3’ Trend On Twitter

Fukrey 3 actor Richa Chadha’s latest tweet has sparked controversy and the actor is being trolled on Twitter for ‘mocking’ the Indian Army. She tweeted a post responding to the statement of Lt General Upendra Dwivedi that the Indian Army is ready to execute orders like taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

‘Mocking’ the Indian Army

Bollywood actress Richa Chadha is yet again under the radar after she posted a tweet on the 2020 Galwan clash, in which several Indian Army soldiers were martyred. The actress received severe backlash after she allegedly ‘mocked’ the Indian army and the martyrs of the Galwan valley incident. Though the actress deleted the post later, the damage was already done.


Richa’s deleted tweet read, “Galwan says hi.” As soon as she tweeted this, netizens started to slam her for allegedly insulting the army by talking about the 2020 clash between India and China.

One user wrote, “Mocking the sacrifice of our soldiers at Galwan valley. Shameful & disgraceful.”

Another user shared, “`Galwan says hi` writes Richa Chadha in response to a statement by a commanding officer on POK. Disrespecting those who gave their lives for India. Mocking the Indian army. She proves once again there is no limit to how low this industry can sink”.


Public apology

Later, she put out a public apology after deleting the controversial Twitter post. “Even though it can never be my intention in the least, if the 3 words which are being dragged into a controversy have offended or hurt anyone, I apologize and also say that it would sadden me if even unintentionally my words have triggered this feeling in my brothers in the fauj (army) of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part,” Richa Chadha said in her apology tweet.

She also adds that her grandfather, a “Lieutenant Colonel”, took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war. “My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It’s in my blood. A whole family is affected when a son is martyred or even injured while saving the nation which is made up of people like us and I personally know how it feels. It is an emotive issue for me.”

Though the actress apologized, the damage was already done. Netizens are now demanding a boycott of her upcoming movie ‘Fukrey 3’. ‘Boycott Fukrey 3’ has already started trending on Twitter.
