Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar on Monday took to Twitter to clarify that he had earlier "accidentally" liked a tweet by Jamia Millia Islamia University students.

Even while several of his Bollywood colleagues lashed out at the authorities over the tension at Delhi's Jamia Millia Islamia University, Akshay Kumar landed himself in a soup by liking a video that mocked the attack on Jamia. When checked minutes later, it appeared that it has been 'unliked'.

The superstar tweeted: "Regarding the 'like' on the tweet of Jamia Milia students, it was by mistake. I was scrolling and accidentally it must have been pressed and when I realised I immediately unliked it as In no way do I support such acts."

The actor was immediately trolled for his tweet.

Another sarcastic comment reads, "The Accidental Nationalist…"

Another user trolled, "Yeah! Even accepting Canadian citizenship was by mistake! We understand you mr. Kumar thanks for clarification."

The amended Citizenship Act (CAA) seeks to grant Indian citizenship to refugees from Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Parsi and Christian communities coming from neighboring countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.

Protests against CAA continued in different parts of the country including Delhi, Assam, Hyderabad, Aligarh and Kolkata.
