Actor Siddharth trolled on social media after his ‘sexist’ tweet on Saina Nehwal goes viral

New Delhi: ‘Rang De Basanti’ fame Siddharth had to face serious criticism on microblogging site Twitter on Monday, after his ‘sexist’ tweet on badminton player Saina Nehwal went viral.

The derogatory remark came in response to Nehwal’s tweet wherein she condemned PM Narendra Modi’s convoy’s security breach in Punjab’s Ferozepur on January 5.

Nehwal had wrote, “No nation can claim itself to be safe if the security of its own PM gets compromised. I condemn, in the strongest words possible, the cowardly attack on PM Modi by anarchists. #BharatStandsWithModi #PMModi (sic).”

Replying to Saina, the actor allegedly used a sexually disparaging remark for the ace sports star. Siddharth’s tweet read, “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India (sic).”
