Sushant Singh Rajput is undoubtedly the man of the moment.
His film, the Neeraj Pandey-directed MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has been raking in big numbers at the box-office while his performance itself has earned him much praise, instantly making him the frontrunner for acting awards.
On the eve of the film's release, writer-director-actor Rajat Kapoor (Aankhon Dekhi, Mithya), however, chose to tweet about Rajput's looks.
Dhoni looks so much better than the actor who plays him..#fact— Rajat Kapoor (@mrrajatkapoor) September 29, 2016
To which the actor responded:

Quite a dignified reply.
However, poor Kapoor got massively trolled for his tweet with comments like the following:
— Jaiyesh Raj (@caption_raj) October 12, 2016
Which made Kapoor even angrier.
They will lynch you not only for political opinions- but for having ANY opinions at all! The lynch mobs are ready and willing- for any cause— Rajat Kapoor (@mrrajatkapoor) October 12, 2016
It came to a point where he finally ended up complimenting the actor.
@itsSSR :))) I believe your performance is fab in the film.. and maan, your fan following is huge!! Best wishes, Sushant.— Rajat Kapoor (@mrrajatkapoor) October 12, 2016
