CNN posted an article with headlines “Meet Rajinikanth, the Bollywood hero you may not have heard about”. The thing which Rajini fans found offensive was Rajinikanth referred as Bollywood hero.
What come next was usually predictable as many Thaliva fans slammed CNN over doing this mistake.
Rajinikanth, who has also done some work in Bollywood is recognized as Kollywood megastar, which is basically the entertainment industry of South India.
Here’s how it turned worst days for CNN:
