It all started after Akshay on Monday morning took to Twitter to clarify that he had earlier “accidentally” liked a tweet by Jamia Millia Islamia university students.

At a time when many Bollywood celebs are lashing out at authorities over tension at Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia, Akshay landed himself in a soup by liking a video that mocked the attack on Jamia.

He later clarified, “Regarding the ‘like’ on the tweet of Jamia 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.”

Kashyap even slammed the government, calling it “fascist”.
