Prakash Raj criticises Akshay Kumar for reaching out to Richa Chadha over Galwan’s comment, says “Didn’t expect this from you”

New Delhi: South actor Prakash Raj confronted actor Akshay Kumar on Friday for criticising Richa Chadha for her remark about the 2020 Galwan clash, which resulted in the deaths of several Indian Army soldiers.

Taking to Twitter, Prakash Raj reacted to Akshay’s tweet and wrote, “Didn’t expect this from you @akshaykumar..having said that @RichaChadha is more relevant to our country than you sir. #justasking.”

Akshay had previously criticised Richa on Twitter and uploaded a screenshot of her remark along with it he attached his statement, which reads, “Hurts to see this. Nothing ever should make us ungrateful towards our armed forces. Woh hain toh aaj hum hain.”

South actor Prakash Raj came in support of the actress and wrote, “Yes we stand with you @RichaChadha… we understand what you meant.”

On Wednesday, Richa Chadha responded to Northern Army Commander Lt. Gen. Upendra Dwivedi’s declaration that the Indian Army is prepared to carry out any instructions to retake Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Lt. General Dwivedi made his remarks in reaction to the Defence Minister’s earlier speech, in which he reaffirmed New Delhi’s determination to retake Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), promising that all refugees will regain their homes and lands. 

Lt General Dwivedi said, “As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the Government of India. Whenever such orders are given, we will always be ready for it.” 

Sharing the statement, Richa took to her Twitter handle and wrote, “Galwan says hi.” 

As soon as she posted this, social media erupted, with individuals attacking her for allegedly insulting the army by bringing up the India-China conflict in 2020.

Richa Chadha’s apologies tweet 

In a tweet on Thursday, Richa expressed her regret.

Richa wrote, “Even though it can never be my intention in the least if the 3 words which are being dragged into a controversy have offended or hurt anyone, I apologise and also say that it would sadden me if even unintentionally my words have triggered this feeling in my brothers in the Fauj of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part. As a Lt. Col, he took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war, in the 1960s. My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It’s in my blood.” 

She added, “A whole family is affected when their son is martyred or even injured while saving the nation which is made up of people like us and I personally know how it feels. It is an emotive issue for me.”
