“For God’s sake, stop taking our name in vain. We refuse to be pawns in your battles of puny egos. Do not belittle our tragedy. Tomorrow your finger might get hurt somewhere. What will you say? I understand pain of Kashmiri Pandits? Pleaseeeee!,” he added in one other tweet.

In a video message addressed to Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, Kangana stated, “I think you have done me a huge favour.
