Rajput queen Padmavati is alive!!! Sobha De claimed she is “Padmavati” but Indians trolled her saying “Khiliji would perform Jauhar”

Lady without brain!! Or can I say the only lady without brains…

An Author, columnist and Novelist, Shobha Rajadhyaksha who is also known as Shobha De is best known for her depiction of socialites and sex in her works of fiction, for which she has widely known as the “Jackie Collins of India”!!

She is in limelight for her nonsense talks and senseless comments against the well-known reputed personalities in the Society. She has not spared and has been targeting PM Modi in her tweets.

After making her name as a model, she began a career in journalism in 1970, during the course of which she founded and edited three magazines—Stardust, Society, and Celebrity.In her columns, she used to explore the socialite lifestyle of celebrities in Mumbai. At present, she is a freelance writer and columnist for several newspapers and magazines.

Shobha has an endless number of acclaims in her kitty!!

The number of applauses in the name of Shobha De might be a little tough to count. Self-claimed social commentator and opinion shaper, Shobha De has stirred controversy on various occasions. From body-shaming Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton to her recent dig on Indian athletes.

 The Shiv Sena has protested the publication of some of Shobha De’s opinions, including the separation of Mumbai from Maharashtra to create a separate entity.

 During the 2016 Olympics, De suggested in a tweet that “Indian athletes visit the Olympics merely to take selfies and spend government money”. Insulting the hard work and efforts of our Indian athletes and the fame they got us. Her comment received widespread criticism from various quarters. Author and critic Shobha De had stormed controversy by slamming Indian athletes on social networking site Twitter.
“Why do we bother about Olympics?”, she tweeted. Another tweet followed in which she criticized Team India for clicking selfies and coming back without winning any medal.

 When Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a speech at Dubai Cricket Stadium and said he saw a “mini India” in front of me, the jubilant Indian diaspora called Modi a ‘rockstar’.

The columnist wrote on Twitter that Modi should not be referred as ‘rockstar’, he is not from Bollywood. Twitterati supported Modi and asked De to take a chill pill.

 “A saree needs curves. A saree demands a derriere. Kate has none.”
This is what the writer wrote on Prince William and Kate Middleton’s visit to India.

Shobha received flak for her remark from social media users. In fact, a Facebook post by a Guwahati-resident had gone viral. The message was simple, a saree needs no curves.

 A complaint was filed against the writer when she tweeted about eating beef.

Regarding this Social activist Vishnu Gawli wrote to the commissioner of police of Navi Mumbai to take action against Shobha.

“Beef has become a very sensitive issue and we revere cow as a goddess. There have been incidents of violence in the country and such statements during these times will only add fuel to fire”, Vishnu wrote.

Here’s Shobha with yet again proving her immense personality adding to her list of applauses!!

She has portrayed her immense personality by talking about today’s trending topic “Rani Padmavati”!! Shobha tried to grab a bit of limelight through her great talks but landed grabbing a great amount of criticisms from the public.

Shobha, you bore us a lot with your hollow writing. Those Hindu warriors were tough to those barbaric invaders so you are able to maintain your name as Shobha De otherwise by now you would have been Shabnam. If your logic prevailed then Hindustan would have been another Iran, be thankful to those Hindu warriors that you are not surviving in “a burkha and enjoying a democracy”.

She has made contaminated the History of India talking against the views of associations opposing Padmavati. Some of the nonsense talks by her are baseless. She herself being a Hindu has portrayed Hinduism in the wrong light. People, who read this, have laid down a red carpet of applauses to her. Here are the tweets below:

“To begin with, I am not even sure I existed, except in a poet’s imagination. But my legend definitely lives on in the collective imagination. I am fine with that. What upset me are the interpretations. Who dares to speak in my name? Shobha said.

I would advise her to firstly know well about the Indian history and make a confirmation to herself before commenting wrong on the historic warriors and depths of the history, instead of insulting the pureness of our ancestors and Hinduism.
