Anand Mahindra's Tweet On Telugu Star Backfires, #BoycottMahindra Trends

A simple response from Anand Mahindra offended the fans of Tollywood and 'Jaisimha' star Nandamuri Balakrishna.

A seemingly innocent response to a tweet by Anand Mahindra, the executive chairman of the Mahindra Group, got the Internet riled up on Tuesday.

A Twitter user tagged Mahindra in a tweet and posted a video of Tollywood star Nandamuri Balakrishna lifting a Bolero with just one hand in a scene from his box office hit Jaisimha.

Mahindra, a regular on microblogging site, responded with a "witty" response saying how his service workshops don't need hydraulic lifts anymore to do Bolero check-ups.

However, the tweet didn't go down too well with the Balakrishna fans who got offended to a point that they began tweeting with the hashtags #BoycottMahindra and #BanMahindra.

One user even called the response from Mahindra a publicity stunt. Tch Tch.


While some just enjoyed the sh*t fest.

Oh, btw, a Mahindra Bolero weighs around 1600 kgs. Just saying.

Here's the video for you curious folks:
