'Dhadak' actress Janhvi Kapoor's tweet saying 'I do not understand politics but know that the country needs Modi ji' went viral on social media. The tweet that got over 4,000 shares, 11,000 likes and over 700 comments was posted by a person called Govind Saroj.
The page unfortunately doesn't exist now and has been deleted but the account was created in June 2017. The account ‘govinddeshpremi’ was renamed to ‘realjanhvi’.
TRUTH: Janhvi Kapoor is NOT on Twitter and only uses her Instagram handle.
Here's the proof -
This is not the first time a fake news has been circulated amidst the ongoing General Elections. Earlier too, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's picture went viral where the two were spotted wearing a saffron scarf with 'Vote for BJP' written on it. A group called 'Ek Bihari 100 Pe Bhari' on Facebook had photoshopped the images of the couple and put the slogan 'Vote For BJP' on the saffron scarf they wore at the temple after their wedding.
