I was celebrating my tea-seller from Kerala… But which tea-seller did the trolls see? If you don’t understand a joke, the joke is on you… Grow up…”
In another tweet, the actor wrote, ‘For those who only know of a tea vendor, I am proudly sharing the story of our Malayali tea vendor, who has been inspiring us since the 1960s. If you want to be educated, please read it.’
