Mathura: After facing flak for sharing pictures from her film shoot here as violence erupted in her constituency, Mathura, actress and BJP MP Hema Malini described herself as a “very sensitive” person. The encroacher-police clash in Mathura has left 24 dead.
The 67-year-old actress was called “insensitive” by Twitterati after she posted photos from Mumbai shoot of “Ek Thi Rani”, her upcoming film. She later deleted the images and posted a tweet condoling the deaths in the clashes. After the row, Malini took to Twitter again. “I am a very sensitive person. I am deeply pained on the Mathura incident but law and order of UP is the core issue. Let’s not divert,” she wrote.
The actress-politician further tweeted, “I will visit Mathura anyway. But the presence of law and order is more important than my presence.”
In her earlier tweet, Malini expressed condolence over the incident. “I just came back from Mathura and got the news of the violence that has taken place there in which policemen have lost their lives,” she tweeted. The actress said she will visit Mathura again if required.
