The entire Sandalwood industry went into shock after learning about the Sandalwood star Chiranjeevi Sarja’s sudden death due to cardiac arrest at the age of 39, on June 7. He was admitted to a private hospital in Bangalore after he complained of chest pain and shortness of breath. Sadly, the actor bid adieu to the world on Sunday afternoon.
After Chiranjeevi Sarja’s death, many South Indian celebrities started mourning the Sandalwood star’s demise on social media. However, writer Shobhaa De’s tweet left fans angry. She wrote, “One more shining star….gone! Justlikee that…what a tragic lss! Condolences to the bereaved family members. @chirusarja.” (sic) In the post, Shobhaa De put Megastar Chiranjeevi’s photo instead of late Chiranjeevi Sarja.
This blunder was noticed by many Chiru and Sarja fans, who asked her to delete the tweet. Shobhaa later deleted the tweet, but till then, many had taken screenshots and started trolling her.

This is what happens if you are half minded… Whether politics or entertainment, half knowledge is dangerous than no knowledge. #ShobhaaDe
Before tweeting about such a towering personality of Indian cinema, you should have verified it. https://t.co/n595HwmHDF
