Film actress Hema Malini is also the elected MLA from Mathura constituency, which is currently engulfed by tension following a violent confrontation between the police and encroachers. While Mathura burnt and the death toll rose, Hema Malini was in Mumbai's Madh Island, tweeting pictures of her shooting for a film and hoping for its early release! She later deleted the tweets as Twitterati completely trolled her for her posts while accusing her of neglecting her duties as the MLA of the region embroiled in violence and clashes.
Criticised by the public for her indifference and negligence of the situation, Hema Malini deleted the images and the social media posts related to her film and shooting and she posted the following message, "I just came back from Mathura and got the news of the violence tht has taken place there in which policemen have lost their lives. Heartfelt condolences to families of SP City Mukul Dwivedi & SHO Santosh Kumar who laid down their lives in the line of duty. I fervently appeal to the people of Mathura to remain calm & not get misguided by violent elements."
Looks like it might be a while before the actress will be forgiven for this goof-up!
