Kalki Koechlin deletes Twitter app

The Dev D actor wrote, “Had to do this today. The hate and disinformation, the doom scrolling, the helplessness. But what really crossed the line for me, what really made me draw a boundary was the denial or the justification of Palestinian children murdered in the thousands or the denial or glorification of Israeli women being raped, tortured and murdered, I have had enough.”

Sayani Gupta to Kalki

She went on to offer her followers some alternative platforms. She also used several hashtags related to the ongoing Palestine-Israel crisis. Applauding her decision, the Four More Shots Please actor Sayani Gupta commented, “Oh man. Absolutely. There’s no nuance anymore! No sense of what’s just. It’s all about polarisation. This or that. Choose a side and hate on the other. Also, had gotten off Twitter maybe almost two years ago. Best cleanse ever!”

Internet reacts

Reacting to the actor's post, a user wrote in the comments, “Thank you for being one of the only few Bollywood celebrities for speaking out for the cause of Palestine. The deafening silence from the rest who have massive influence and reach is sickening.” “Good to see that someone from the Indian industry has some nerves to speak the truth. Love you for this,” added another one.

Kalki was last seen in Goldfish with Deepti Naval. In the film, Kalki appears as a loving daughter, Anamika who struggles with financial problems.
