Third time is a charm. Not for Tara Sharma.
The actor tagged the parody account of her Om Jai Jagdish co-star Abhishek Bachchan in a tweet for the third time in a row.
She had attended Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s daughter Aradhya’s birthday bash along with her two kids. After the party, she took to Twitter to thank the Bachchans for hosting her. However, she tagged a fake account of Abhishek.
The parody account of Abshishek even responded to her tweet with this hilarious reply:
Thanks Tara ! We too had a great time. Next time pls drink less so that u know which handle to tag in your tweets. This is the 2nd time now. pic.twitter.com/3FEP2BVB37

As the parody Bachchan pointed out, this was not the first time Sharma tagged the wrong account. She did so in October when she thanked the Bachchans for hosting her in a Diwali party at their bungalow. Even then the parody account had pointed it out sarcastically by taking a dig at the crashing careers of both Sharma and Abhishek.
Wonder why did Tara ji delete this tweet 😭😂 pic.twitter.com/rWssqLSjYl

The first instance of this `comedy of errors’ was when she posted the link of her chat show The Tara Sharma Show on the profile of the parody Bachchan. However, she had realized the mistake immediately then and had tweeted an explanation.
To her defense, the picture of the official account and the parody account of Abhishek is the same. However, the last name is spelt differently. Also, interestingly, Sharma always manages to miss the blue tick that appears on the right hand side of the Twitter handle indicating the authenticity of the account.
The Twitterati had ignored the first time it happened but lauded parody Bachchan’s reply the next two times. Though Sharma deleted the tweets, the damage had been done by then. The third time was indeed a curse for the former actor who was last seen in the 2010 romantic comedy Prem Kaa Game.
We wonder what @juniorbachchan has to say about the same. Yes, we spelt it right.
