Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor left for heavenly abode on December 4, 2017. It was a sad day indeed for Bollywood as well as for the nation as we lost one of the finest actors of our country. The actor died at 79. While the social media was flooded with condolences, Times Now was in too hurry to juggled up the things and accidentally confused the veteran actor with Shashi Tharoor.
Times Now put out a tweet, which has since been deleted, stating filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar remembered “Shashi Tharoor” for his work in parallel cinema. Well, the mistake surely didn’t take the things good for Mr.Tharoor. As it was followed by people mistaking the two and that led to Tharoor’s office getting flooded with condolence calls and messages.
Later Times Now apologized for their mistake and tweeted but till then the typo, predictably, got several reactions from social media users.
