Twitter can be a mean place. But if you're Riteish Deshmukh, you'll know just how to respond. On 2 May, Pakistani journalist Ahmer Naqvi tweeted a photo of a billboard advertisement for Arnab Goswami's soon-to-be-launched Republic TV. "Why is Riteish Deshmukh our national migraine?" Naqvi tweeted.

Without missing a beat, the actor responded to the query about the “Pakistan’s Migrane” billboard.
While Naqvi insisted that the resemblance between the actor and the journalist had confused him, Twitter decided Deshmukh would be the perfect choice to play Arnab in a biopic.
Some asked Riteish to do a parody on Arnab.
Your response has won over Twitter, Riteish Deshmukh. It will be fun to watch you on the screen, yelling: "the nation wants to NO".
