Today, we are sad to hear the news of Shashi Kapoor’s death. He had a huge fan following and we still can’t believe that he is no more with us. Social media is flooded with condolence messages for the LEGEND.
However, there seems to be a goof up, because some of them called Shashi Tharoor’s office. Yes, people actually mistook Shashi Kapoor as Shashi Tharoor & started pouring condolence messages for him.
Well, it all started due to Times Now; they tweeted about Madhur Bhandarkar leaving a condolence message for Shashi Tharoor. Have a look at the tweet;
However someone corrected them and a Twitter user shared the screenshot of the same;

Seeing his, Shashi Tharoor replied;

His reply read, “We’re getting condolence calls in the office! Reports of my demise are, if not exaggerated, at least premature. “
Seeing this going on, even Omar Abdullah took a dig at Shashi Tharoor. Here’s what he said…
As much as some of these channels dislike me they’ve never killed me off. You have a unique distinction here Shashi 😀

Times Now had to apologize immediately;
We apologize for the typographical error on our end. @ShashiTharoor we wish you good health.

Media channels should be very careful while tweeting, because this is a very sensitive matter.
What do you have to say about this goof up?
