Stop calling Narendra Modi as 'Rockstar', says Shobha De and gets trolled on Twitter
Mumbai, Aug 18: Shobha De, a well-known writer and columnist, has become the latest victim, who faced stern criticism from the great fans of Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi.
Shobha De was trolled on micro-blogging site Twitter after her tweet, in which she asked Modi-followers not to refer the Prime Minister as "rockstar".
She said that Modi is not from Bollywood, hence, he should not be referred as a "rockstar". Shobha De's statement did not go well with the Modi-bhakts.
During his 2-day visit to UAE, Modi was called a "rockstar". More than 50,000 people gathered to see Modi when he attend the 'Marhaba NaMo' ceremony, which was organised especially for him in Dubai on Monday, Aug 17.
Following Shobha De's tweet, many started commenting on her Twitter profile asserting, "people from Bollywood are film stars, not rockstars."
Shobha De was not the first one who faced criticism for criticising Narendra Modi. Earlier many others including Bollywood actress Shruti Seth too were trolled on social networking sites by Modi-fans.
Here are a few tweets, which criticised Shobha De:
