Responding to him, Raveena tweeted on Friday, "Please do not club together all or generalise. This generates hate towards the Hindi film industry.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Swara Bhasker wrote, "@RichaChadha strength and love to you! (blue heart emoji)." Several Bollywood celebrities criticised Richa after she said in a now-deleted tweet, "Galwan says hi". Her tweet came in response to the Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi’s statement that the Indian Army is "waiting for orders from the govt (sic)" in reclaiming Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Anupam Kher, Akshay Kumar, Kay Kay Menon among others tweeted criticising Richa.

Akshay Kumar was one of the first Bollywood celebrities to react to Richa's tweet. He had written on Twitter, "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 today)." Reacting to it, Prakash Raj tweeted, "Didn't expect this from you @akshaykumar… having said that @RichaChadha is more relevant to our country than you sir…" He also came in support of Richa and wrote, "Yes we stand with you @RichaChadha... we understand what you meant."

After deleting her tweet, following the backlash, Richa issued an apology. A part of her statement 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 the 1960s. My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It's in my blood."
