Actor R Madhavan is one of the very few actors who offers political opinion on social media.
Madhavan called out at the Congress and its social media handlers for coming out with a video meme featuring PM Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi.
The actor referred the meme/troll video as “such bad taste.” The actor tweeted –
Madhavan did receive positive response to his tweet and views, however twitter users pointed out that both the parties — the BJP and the Congress indulge in mudslinging on social media. They questioned the actors selective questioning.
Here are a few reactions to Madhavan’s tweet –
Sad…. But that's electoral politics. They will let down anything in front of anyone as long as they can get up on that chair…. All of them…. No one is exempt.

Bhai, they are opposition. If you want to take the moral high ground on the level of discourse, you missed the bus in 2014 when IT cells thought that running down rivals through memes (remember Pappu jokes?) is the way to go. You get what you sow, brother.

After the cobrapost expose on Bollywood, it would be tough trust if celebs tweet politics on their own will or if they are paid to do so.
