Bhopal: Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar’s goof-up on elections in Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency in Madhya Pradesh has invited him derision in social media.

The actor was under impression that Bhopal was going to polls in the final phase of parliamentary elections on Sunday. Accordingly, he made an appeal to voters of Bhopal to exercise their franchise on Sunday. He had perhaps no knowledge that Bhopal had already gone to polls on May 12.

 

A tweet by Mr Farhan said, “Dear electorate of Bhopal, it’s time for you to save your city from another full-of-gas tragedy. #Choose Love Not Hate”.

Members of Twitterati pounced on him for making an appeal to voters of Bhopal a week after elections were held in the constituency. He was apparently referring to Pragya’s recent outrageous statement describing Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a patriot.
