Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi scored a self goal for his party with a tweet on Friday in which he expressed disapproval over actress Sunny Leone acquiring the status of a Bollywood icon.

This tweet coincided with the release of Leone’s latest movie ‘Ek Paheli Leela’.

The tweet drew a surge of responses. Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah was quick to express disapproval, and it didn’t take long for the rest of Twitteratti to take aim.
