Saina condemned the lapse in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security last week in Punjab. His convoy was stuck on a flyover in Ferozepur district after protesting farmers blocked the route. “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,” she tweeted on January 5.

In response, Siddharth wrote, “Subtle cock champion of the world… Thank God we have protectors of India. Shame on you #Rihanna.” Last year, Rihanna tweeted in support of the farmers’ protests.

Amid the outrage over his tweet, Siddharth clarified that it was misconstrued. “‘COCK & BULL’. That’s the reference. Reading otherwise is unfair and leading! Nothing disrespectful was intended, said or insinuated. Period,” he wrote in a follow-up post on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Saina said in a statement that Siddharth’s comments were ‘not nice’ and he could have used ‘better words’ to make his point. “Yeah, I’m not sure what he meant. I used to like him as an actor but this was not nice. He can express himself with better words but I guess it’s Twitter and you remain noticed with such words and comments,” she said, according to The New Indian Express. “If the security of the PM of India is an issue then I'm not sure what is secure in the country,” she added.
