New Delhi (Sputnik): A day after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi won re-election, his party's critic film Actress Swara Bhaskar, who canvassed enthusiastically for opposition candidates against him and his party, is being vigorously trolled.
The trolling has intensified since the ruling party' National Democratic Alliance registered a landslide victory on Thursday winning 352 of the 542 seats in Parliament.
The award winning Indian actress, who has starred in several hit Bollywood movies like "Veere Di Wedding" and the "Tanu weds Manu" series, has long been vociferously criticising Prime Minister Modi's alleged "right-wing" politics and so decided to canvass for her selected opposition party candidates by showing up at their election rallies.
However, all the candidates that she campaigned for lost in the elections by a sizeable margin of votes.

path breaking results.
There were some others who used expletives to describe her. Some even went to the extent of calling her a traitor.
All 3 of them are losing big.— Anil Singh (@AnilSoharu) May 23, 2019

BURNOL khud lagaogi ya hum laga de???
What is it about politics that brings out the worst in people? I m looking at the comments of people who should be celebrating the victory of the party they support, or at the very least,feeling happy and positive, but no, every tweet is aggressive, rude,taunting or insulting?

The actress, however, unflinchingly mocked the BJP victory after the election results taking pot-shots at victorious BJP candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who recently made headlines for calling Mahatma Gandhi's killer a "patriot". Sadhvi Pragya, however, won the election by a huge margin.
