Few comments by netizens are as follows:
Shubrajit Dash @shubrajit_dash: In such case, what a wasteful reason to make movies & acting/ singing whatsoever. Why not have that money spent on farmer welfare or at least free tickets to farmers? What say Mr. Less Actor more Politician?
Girish Amitabh @girishamitabh: Don’t waste money making your movies distribute it among the farmers
It’s me @kachori_samosa: Guys who are giving gyan on Sardar statue where were you when Congress was doing scam par scam. Don’t give gyan on just Rs 3000 crore. For a nation like us , it’s not a big amount. Go to Shanti van , Rajaghat etc to make college , hospital.
KALPESH @KALPESHM9: Save ur tweet mr Siddhartha… even I m taking screenshot of ur this tweetyapa…and mark my words…i Will prove u r really st*pid congi man…as per ur tweetyapa all the biggest monument of the world r “wasteful “…
Kiran ?? @airavatvolvo: Breaking news: tomorrow actor siddartha will protest in New Delhi to sell off the land were Nehru Gandhi samadhi is built and to give that fund earned from selling to farmers.
Kishore @Patriot_Analyst: @Actor_Siddharth You have no politico-historical memory and the context in which this great man had to be re-introduced to Indians. For 70 years, only 1 family has been deified with monuments, airports, toilets, ports, bridges dedicated. This historical wrong had to be corrected
Kishore @Patriot_Analyst: Nehru family usurped entire political legacy and goodwill of freedom movement and early founding of Indian republic; this historical injustice had to be corrected. @Actor_Siddhartha you are even talking about him bcos @narendramodi has re-introduced Patel to Indians
venkyTheBoss @vankye: Looks like some political party is asking you to write such ridiculous tweets.
Manoj Borker B @borker_b: I wasted money watching ur movies !!
