Anushka Sharma joined an elite league of celebrities trending on the social media because of their foot-in-the-mouth disease on Monday for spelling Dr APJ Abdul Kalam's name wrong on Twitter. But in all the hullabaloo, no one noticed that even Farhan Akhtar was not too careful with what he was typing.
Twitter troll Kamaal R Khan posted a screenshot of the said tweet:
The internet was all but forgiving to Anushka, we wonder if they will maintain the same stance towards Farhan as well.
According to a report in Yahoo.com, Anushka took three attempts before finally tweeting with the correct spelling of the late president.
Anushka’s first tweet read like this: Very sad to hear about the passing of ABJ Kalam Azad. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP."
She tried to rectify her mistake when some Twitter users pointed out her mistake, but this attempt also went in vain. This time she wrote APJ Kalam Azad.
Finally, she posted her third tweet.
