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.
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.
