Mumbai: Soha Ali Khan has hit back at those who made fun of her for expressing her displeasure over Raghuram Rajan’s announcement to exit as RBI Governor.
Last week, Rajan said that he would not seek renewal of his position as RBI Governor when his term expires in September and will be returning to academia.
Reacting to the news, Soha had tweeted, “Profound loss for India that @RBIGov #RaghuramRajan has been forced to exit. He can only help those who want to help themselves. Shame.”
Her comment was met with trolling as people joked that the 37-year-old actress doesn’t even know the full form of RBI and questioned her knowledge about economy.
“Admit that u didn’t even knew full form of RBI, but hatred made u economist in a single day?? @sakpataudi #MGAKDebate,” tweeted one person.
“@RogueLost @SanjayA32520675 @sakpataudi @RBIGov Does she know full form of RBI ..?” another said.
“@sakpataudi @ArvindKejriwal @RBIGov dear soha do know anything about economy, stop doing drama.”
Slamming her detractors, Soha, who has a Masters degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science, wrote, “LSE doesn’t stand for the London School of Entertainment and dumb actresses are citizens with valid opinions on economic policy #nuffsaid.”

Soha is not the first actress to be a victim of people’s perception that Bollywood female stars lack knowledge about current affairs.
Actresses like Sonakshi Sinha and Sonam Kapoor have been trolled in the past for speaking on socio-economical issues....
