One of the legendary actors of Bollywood Vinod Khanna passed away on Thursday and the social media platforms were flooded with condolence messages for him. He was suffering from cancer and eventually succumbed to the fatal disease. He was aged 70 when he breathed his last. All the cricketing fraternity took to their twitter handle and shared condolence messages.

However, one such condolence message created quite a controversy as the person who made the tweet wrongly tagged former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli in place of Vinod Khanna. This irked the former southpaw as took to his twitter handle and lashed out at the concerned person. But what was good to see that the person who made the tweet accepted his mistake and apologised immediately.


He wrote, “Shame on you people n who so ever have tweeted about Vinod Khanna’s death n tagged my name in their tweets.Have some respect for Vinod Khanna.A versatile Actor and who so ever had tweeted abt me.God will surely punish you.” It was not something which should have happened but Kambli should have accepted the fact that the random guy tagged him by mistake and it was not done intentionally.

The guy named Chikoo replied by saying, “sorry i tagged wrong vinod by mistake. i am really sorry guys for the hurts.” It is not the first time that a name has been confused with as a few days earlier after the Snapchat CEO had said India was a poor nation people started trolling Snapdeal. With social media in full flow at the moment, this kind of things are bound to happen and people should accept it and move as long as it doesn’t get too personal.

Kambli was cited as a great prospect during his teenage days and his name was taken in the same breath with the god of cricket Sachin Tendulkar. Together the duo was involved in a record 664 runs partnership for their school Shradhyashram Vidyamandir which remained the highest partnership of any level of cricket till very recently.
