And no where more of that than twitter these days! Chalo, im off – deactivating my account. Bye guys, peace out.”
She shared a screengrab of her tweet on Instagram and said, “Aag lage basti mein… mein apni masti mein! Bye Twitter (Let the village be on fire, I don’t care).”

Several starkids have come under fire since Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide re-ignited the nepotism debate on social media. Several actresses, including Sonam Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, have been constantly trolled for seeming to have mocked the actor in the past.
Both Alia and Sonam had posted their condolences on Sushant’s death, but were criticised in return when netizens dug out their reactions and comments on Sushant on separate episodes of Koffee with Karan.
The chat show’s host, Karan Johar himself, has been brutally slammed for promoting nepotism in Bollywood and not giving a fair chance to ‘outsiders’ like the Chhichhore actor. In the aftermath, Karan unfollowed most celebrities on Twitter and reduced his following count to just 8 people.
