Actress Raveena Tandontoday sparked a Twitter controversy with her post on ‘saree’ where she targeted trolls, who labelled her as ‘bhakt’.  “A saree day… Will I be termed communal, Sanghibhakt, hindutva icon? If I say I love wearing the saree and I think it’s the most elegant.” the actress wrote.   Soon after her tweet, Raveena, 42, was trolled on the micro-blogging site for ‘communalising saree’. A Twitter user posted, “Are you trying for a comeback in movie? Or trying to get a Sanghi seat in 2019? ”  Raveena, however, later issued a clarification, saying her intention was not to give a communal colour to the attire.  “Saree is a beautiful Elegant Indian Garment. My Tweet was NOT to communalise saree. Was my fear of being trolled to say I love anything Indian.”
“If it has come across as anything else. I apologise. That was not the intention. Had not thought that it would be misunderstood the way it has,” she wrote.   The Times of  India : 12th. June,17
