A person also tweeted, “The way it was first presented. I’m a die hard fan of yours sir & I know you’re not a drinker. Even if you do, you wouldn’t be doing such acts. All the best for your upcoming projects sir. Looking forward to them.” Another wrote, “Yes sir, I also saw a video in the morning…people were laughing…saying anything…in today’s time people should just get a chance…then see how many good people defame other people. ..Public thinking, human being falling so much at this time. Very sad.”
