In a known case of celebrities goofing up while posting messages on social media, Megastar Chiranjeevi became the latest victim as he was declared dead. The blunder came from writer Shobhaa De while she took to social media to condole the death of Kannada actor Chiranjeevi Sarja.
Shobhaa De, a well known writer tweeted a condolence message after the death of Chiranjeevi Sarja, the nephew of actor Arjun Sarja.
In her tweet, she wrote, ‘One more shining star…gone! Just like that… what a tragic loss! Condolences to the bereaved family members.’ However, she goofed up photos sharing megastar Chiranjeevi’s picture instead of Chiranjeevi Sarja. Her foolish act took the internet by storm leaving netizens furious. She deleted the post but fans had already taken a screenshot of her faux pas.
Some asked her to do a Google search henceforth while referring to South Indian personalities.
Chiranjeevi Sarja died at a private hospital in Bengaluru following a cardiac arrest on Sunday.
The 39-year-old had complained of chest pain on Saturday night and was asked to come for a check-up, and on Sunday morning, hours after his admission, he passed away leaving the Kannada film industry shocked.
