Mumbai: At a time when the Narendra Modi government is facing backlash for the rising fuel prices, actor Akshay Kumar is getting trolled for deleting an old tweet that had addressed the issue.

During the UPA government rule in 2012, Akshay had tweeted regarding the fuel price hikes, mirroring the concerns of commoners. “Guys, I think it’s time to clean up your bicycles and hit the road! As per sources, expecting another petrol price hike” the tweet had read.

However, the catch is, that Akshay’s old tweet that was quoted, was soon found to have been erased from social media, for reasons best known to the actor. This irked a number of netizens who started trolling him brutally on Twitter. While some referred to him as a Canadian, other’s called him an ‘ABVP supporter’.

His only release in 2017 was Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. This film depicted the serious of an issue of Toilets in certain regions of the country. Akshay’s performance was praised. Akshay Kumar dug a toilet in Madhya Pradesh to promote the film. The movie trailer was released on 11 June 2017. PM Modi called it a good effort to further the message of cleanliness, as per Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Now as the anti-Modi squad has been slamming the current government for the same reason, Akshay apparently found himself in an uneasy situation. The actor is believed to be on good terms with the prime minister and had also endorsed the Modi government’s Swachh Bharat campaign.

However, it’s not just Akshay. Many other Bollywood celebs too are being trolled for having been vocal about the fuel price hike during the UPA government but maintaining silence now. Others who are facing backlash on social media are Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Vivek Agnihotri among others.

On the other side, Akshay’s Wife Twinkle Khanna is also one celebrity who often finds herself being attacked by trolls for various reasons.
