In his tweet, the Gorkha actor wrote, “Hurts to see this. Nothing ever should make us ungrateful towards our armed forces. Woh hain toh aaj hum hain (We exist because of them).”

Take a look at the tweet made by Akshay Kumar below:

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the Fukrey actress had reacted to the statement made by Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi. In his statement, Dwivedi said that the Indian Army is ready to execute any orders on taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Lt General Dwivedi said, “As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the Government of India. Whenever such orders are given, we will always be ready for it.

Richa on her Twitter shared the statement made by Dwivedi and reacted on the same. She wrote, “Galwan says hi.”

Hell broke loose after the tweet made by Chadha, for which she even faced flak and got criticized by a section on the internet. Netizens slammed the actress for allegedly insulting the Indian army by speaking in context to the 2020 clash between India and China.

However, Richa Chadha took to her Twitter and apologized for her Galwan tweet.

In her apology, the Fukrey actress wrote, “Even though it can never be my intention in the least, if the 3 words which are being dragged into a controversy have offended or hurt anyone, I apologise and also say that it would sadden me if even unintentionally my words have triggered this feeling in my Brothers in the Fauj of which my own Nanaji has been an illustrious part. As a Lt. Col, he took a bullet in the leg in the Indo-China war, in 1960s. My Mamaji was a paratrooper. It’s in my blood.”
