Anupam Kher calls Richa Chadha’s Galwan tweet ‘shameful’ and ‘work of the cowards’ – Times of India

Anupam Kher is the latest Bollywood actor to react to Richa Chadha’s tweet about ‘Galwan’. The veteran actor called her post the ‘work of cowards’. “Trying to become popular among some people by speaking poorly about your country is the work of cowards and small people. And putting the honor of the army at stake…. What can be more shameful than this,” tweeted Anupam Kher in Hindi, along with a screenshot of Richa’s now deleted tweet.

Ranvir Shorey had also reacted to Richa’s post and tweeted, “Making jibes at the sacrifices that our armed forces make for our country just to score brownie points with dislodged politicians, or to fit in their ‘intellectual’ cliques, is plainly daft and irresponsible as a citizen. Forever grateful to our jawans…” Richa stirred controversy after she tweeted, “Galwan says hi” in reaction to the Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi’s statement that the Indian Army is “waiting for orders from the govt” in reclaiming Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Akshay Kumar had also called out Richa’s tweet and posted, “Hurts to see this. Nothing ever should make us ungrateful towards our armed forces. Woh hain toh aaj hum hain (they are there so we exist).”

Soon after the social media uproar over her post, Richa issued an apology statement which read, “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 apologise and also say that it would sadden me if even unintentionally my words have triggered this feeling in my brothers in the Fauj of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part. As a Lt. Col, he took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war, in 1960s. My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It’s in my blood. A whole family is affected when their 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.”
