The Hush Post: Controversial BJP legislator Ram Kadam was again in news for wrong reasons. In a Twitter post on Friday, Kadam tweeted that Bollywood actress “Sonali Bendre has passed away in America”.
Sonali Bendre is currently under treatment for cancer in the United States (US).
With this tweet in Marathi language, MLA Kadam condoled “Sonali Bendre’s death”, a report said.
When the news was found to be incorrect, Twitterati and Sonali Bendre’s fans started trolling Kadam.
After realising that the news is incorrect and facing massive backlash, the MLA withdrew his tweet.
Earlier this week, the saffron party legislator was under fire over his controversial remark “will kidnap girl”.
After being trolled for believing a baseless rumour, Kadam later deleted the message and posted another tweet “praying for good health and speedy recovery” of the actress, it was reported.
Bendre had revealed in July that she has been diagnosed with a “high-grade cancer” and is getting treatment for the same in the US.
Earlier this week, MLA Kadam had courted controversy with his remarks at a Dahi Handi (Janmashtami) celebration in Mumbai.
A video clip showed him saying that youngsters often seek his help after girls reject their proposals. “Come with your parents. What will I do if your parents approve? I will kidnap the girl and hand her over to you,” the BJP MLA had spoken publicly while addressing a crowd.
