Suniel Shetty recently responded to a Twitter user who wrongly tagged him and criticised him over an advertisement for a tobacco firm brand, which does not even feature the actor. The user tagged Suniel Shetty along with a picture of a hoarding of a tobacco brand featuring Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan. He mistakenly tagged the Dhadkan actor and an excerpt from his tweet read: “Hey #GutkaKingsofIndia.” Reacting to the tweet, the actor wrote: “Bhai tu apna chashma adjust kar le ya badal de (Brother, adjust your glasses or change them)”, along with a folded hands emoji.
The Twitter user later apologised to the actor and wrote: “Hello Suniel Shetty. Sorry it was just mistagged and i didn’t mean to hurt you bhai, lot of love. It should be (@ajaydevgn) As I am your fan you name ups always first in tag.”

Last month, actor Akshay Kumar joined Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan to do an ad for a tobacco firm, for which he received major flak. He later apologised to his fans. “I would like to apologise to you, all my fans and well-wishers. Your reaction over the past few days has deeply affected me,” read an excerpt from his post and stated that he has “decided to contribute the entire endorsement fee towards a worthy cause.”
