Actress Kajol was on top of the hit list of trolls on Monday. All because she had posted a video of a 'beef' dish that her friend had prepared.
However, the actress later clarified that it was actually buffalo meat.
Apparently, to avoid a massive controversy and to save oneself from the so-called "gau-rakshaks", the actress, even before she could settle the taste of the palatial dish, had to issue a statement on Twitter, saying she did not want to hurt religious sentiments and that the dish was not beef.
"A video of me at a friend's lunch said that there was a beef dish at the table. That's a miscommunication. What was shown was buffalo meat, that is legally available meat."
"I'm issuing this clarification because this is a sensitive matter that may hurt religious sentiments, which is not my intention," Kajol wrote.
She deleted the clip from her Instagram and Facebook accounts after it attracted negative comments.

@KajolAtUN The person behind you said "beef". If it were a Muslim on the street, he would have been dead by now.— DrameBaaz (@BaazDrame) May 1, 2017
The Dilwale actress posted the video of her friend describing the food that she was eating. And much excitingly the friend responded saying - beef, a word enough to make one's life miserable in the country these days.
