'My tweet was not to communalise saree': Raveena Tandon apologises after getting trolled


Entertainment, Bollywood

The actress had to clear the air and apologise after her tweet about 'saree' got trolled on social media.

Raveena Tandon will next be seen in 'Shab.'

Mumbai: Actress Raveena Tandon recently sparked a Twitter controversy with her post on "saree" where she targeted trolls, who labelled her as "bhakt".

"A saree day... Will I be termed communal, Sanghi, bhakt, hindutva icon? If I say I love wearing the saree and I think it's the most elegant. (sic)" the actress wrote.

Soon after her tweet, Raveena, 42, was trolled on the micro-blogging site for "communalising saree".

A Twitter user posted, "Are you trying for a comeback in movie? Or trying to get a Sanghi seat in 2019? (sic)."

Raveena, however, later issued a clarification, saying her intention was not to give a communal colour to the attire. 

"Saree is a beautiful Elegant Indian Garment. My Tweet was NOT to communalise Saree. Was my fear of being trolled to say I love anything Indian. 

"If it has come across as anything else. I apologise. That was not the intention. Had not thought that it would be misunderstood the way it has," she wrote.
