Arnab vs Rajdeep: Twitter bashes Anupam Kher, as he defends Goswami

New Delhi: Actor Anupam Kher came out to defend Arnab Goswami as senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai called out Arnab Goswami on a lie. But Kher gets brutally trolled for supporting Arnab on Twitter.

According to a report by India Today, the incident Arnab narrated had really happened, except not with him.

Rajdeep Sardesai had described the entire episode in his book 2014: The Election that Changed India. When the viral video of Arnab came to his notice, Rajdeep Sardesai decided to take it on Twitter and reveal the truth with some good background and with details.

However, Twitter was brutal as always when some said Arnab Goswami cannot lie, some said “he does that on a daily basis.” Twitterati even trended #ArnabDidItand re-imagined events in history as it would have happened if Arnab claimed to be responsible for it. For instance…

Yesterday morning, in a tweet, Rajdeep Sardesai asked if Arnab Goswami would resign and quit journalism if his story turned out to be false.

Quoting this tweet, Anupam Kher tried to mediate and asked, “Nation also wants to know how many times have you resigned and quit journalism when your innumerable stories have turned out to be false?”

Sardesai, replied saying, “Well said sir. Not holier than thou at all. But some of us apologise when we make mistakes, some brazen it out, that’s all.”

But brave Anupam Kher went on to give voluntary advice to Sardesai. He said, “I am sure Arnab can fight his own battle. Par aap logo ne itne saal saath kaam kiya hai. Toote hue rishto ki bhi ek maryada hoti hai.” (You have worked together for so long. There should be dignity even in broken friendships)

Twitter users, however, were not pleased with Anupam Kher stepping up to defend Arnab Goswami and responded in this way.

A video of Arnab Goswami had gone viral, where he described how his car was stopped during Gujarat riots.
