After Ayushmaan Khurrana, Richa Chaddha also supported Indian spinner Arshdeep Singh and criticized naysayers for trolling the young talent. India lost to Pakistan in the Asian Cup last weekend. Singh dropped the crucial catch of Asif Ali during the 18th left. Asif’s wicket could have been a game-changer, but Arshdeep missed it.
Shortly after the match, several netizens and spectators slammed Arshdeep for his weak performance. In a viral video trending on social media, we can see Arshdeep getting on the bus and getting badly beaten up by a man. According to some reports, the onlooker called him “gadaar.”
The Gangs of Wasseypur actress expressed her displeasure at such brash behavior and shared her feelings about it. On her Twitter, Richa said: “Ugly, pot-bellied, loser who can be outrun by a slug has the audacity to insult a player. FO armchair critic. Your life is #jhand, stop venting on others. Arshdeep paaji, tussi koi lod na lo. Love you (heart emoji)”
Here’s her tweet

Earlier, Ayushmann shared his views on team India’s performance and begged to stop bashing Singh about his performance. On his Twitter, he wrote: “It’s been almost 24 hours but I can’t get over the nerves from last night. There’s always a heartbreak when India loses a match. But let’s take a look at the silver lining. Kohli is in shape now SKY looks good Also our openers Let’s not be fickle and fair weather We must support our team even if they lose a close And for God’s sake stop trolling Arshdeep He is a great prospect Expect fireworks in the rest of the tournament. Praying for the next clash.” Even Swara Bhasker and Gul Panag backed Singh, netizens and die-hard cricket fans to calm down.
