Shashi Tharoor Receives the Condolence Calls on Shashi Kapoor ‘s death!

Written by Puja Agrawal
This is not the first time that a goof-up has happened. The time when Vinod Khanna died, people started pouring in the condolence calls for the former Indian cricketer, Vinod Kamli. It’s high time people need to watch out their tweets and messages.
As Shashi Kapoor passed away on Monday, in Mumbai after a prolonged illness. Many celebrities and well known personalities took to social media to express their grief. Meanwhile, a few condolence calls got dropped in for the politician Shashi Tharoor, as tweeted out by himself.

This mix-up basically happened after a leading news channel’s official handle mistakenly tweeted out, “Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar remembering Shashi Tharoor on his sad demise said he is one producer who got parallel cinema on the front”. This tweet was brought to Tharoor’s attention, which is what prompted his response. The news channel soon deleted the tweet and even apologised for the typographical error to Tharoor, wishing him good health.
