"What's in a name?" Shakespeare had once asked.
If only he had known Hardik Shah, a Mumbai resident, who is the business head of Videogram, he would have sure agreed that there's a lot in a name.
Since the time Hardik Patel hit the news for demanding an Other Backward Cast (OBC) reservation for the Patel community in the state of Gujarat, Shah is having a tough time on Twitter.
People who have raising their voices on Twitter against Patel for the violence in Gujarat, are unfortunately sending their messages to the wrong Hardik.
@hardik another idiot of Gujarat .— Tathagata Khastagir (@TathagataKhast1) August 28, 2015
To know the real face of HARDIK PATEL check his tweets from march 2014 @Hardik patel patidar.
He is an Aaptard man!— Vikas Dhakane (@NaMoSupporter) August 28, 2015
Some also had a few requests:
@hardik abe saale monday ko college me chutti chahiye, mumbai me kuch kar be— Amaltash (@amaltashd) August 28, 2015
Shah tried telling people that they got the wrong Hardik, but that didn't help much:
For one & all, I'm not Hardik Patel :)— NOT Hardik PATEL (@hardik) August 25, 2015
May be you can connect me to Hardik Patel? I will send him all your messages. https://t.co/2FFvCkvOgp— NOT Hardik PATEL (@hardik) August 27, 2015
Someone pls black out on Twitter too!! https://t.co/F9CxdXxu5N— NOT Hardik PATEL (@hardik) August 28, 2015
Finally, Shah decided to change his display name.
But, that hasn't helped either.
