Anupam Kher, Shashi Tharoor lock horns on Twitter

Anupam Kher and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor were involved in a war of words on Twitter over the veteran Bollywood actor's comments that he is scared to openly say he is a Hindu.


Posting a link of Kher's recent TV interview, Tharoor tweeted, "Come on Anupam. I say it all the time. I'm a proud Hindu. Just not the Sangh's kind of Hindu. @AnupamPkher."
This did not go down well with the 60-year-old actor, who called Tharoor a "Congi Chamcha" (Congress stooge).

"Come on Shashi. Never thought you will misinterpret my statement like trolls do. And behave like a Congi Chamcha."

Tharoor quickly retorted saying, "Abuse, @AnupamPkher , is what you use when you run out of arguments. I'm a proud MP of @INCIndia &I don't resort to insults. #CongiChamcha."

Quoting 59-year-old Tharoor's tweet, Kher replied, "Sadly, you forgot that you brought in your kind of Hindu & Sanghi Hindu first. You want to categorize that also?"
