Shekhar Suman takes a dig at Kangana Ranaut's Simran; Twitterati reacts (and how)
Kangana Ranaut gave a slew of explosive interviews in the run up to her film Simran. Although the Hansal Mehta directorial did receive mixed reviews from critics, actor Shekhar Suman posted a tweet after the film's release, which was reportedly directed towards Ranaut.
The tweet, ostensibly, takes a dig at Simran's mediocre box-office performance, despite being mired in multiple controversies during the promotional phase.
Although, the reality TV judge later clarified by saying that his statement was not targeted at the Queen actor, and was a 'general statement', the Twitter community was quick to point out the flaws in his tweet.
Here's Suman's tweet:
Itna hungama ..itna shor sharaba..nateeja?khoda pahad ..nikli chuhiya!

The film was expected to fare extremely well both critically and commercially. However, after having a dull start, the film's collections are pegged at Rs 12 crore so far. Suman's son, Adhyayan Suman, and Ranaut were said to be involved back in the day, and had acted together in the 2009 film Raaz: The Mystery Continues.
