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.
