Congratulations are pouring in from all quarters for Mirabai and ever since the news broke, Bollywood actors have been leaving no stone unturned to celebrate the occasion by posting congratulatory messages for Mirabai on social media.
After Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma and others posted their wishes, Good Newwz actress Tisca Chopra also shared a congratulatory tweet for Mirabai Chanu but got heavily trolled since she posted Indonesian weightlifter Aisah Windy Cantika’s photo instead of Mirabai’s. Twitterati called out the tweet and trolled the actress on the platform.
