Anand Mahindra Involves In Banter On Actor Lifting Bolero With Ease


Anand Mahindra got some angry reactions from Telugu movistar Balakrishna’s fans for joking about a movie clip

Mahindra Group and its chairman Anand Mahindra have been receiving flak from angry fans of Telugu movistar Balakrishna due to a tweet that involved a clip from the actor’s latest movie Jaisimha. The clip shows Balakrishna lifting a Mahindra Bolero with one hand and Mr. Anand Mahindra tweeted writing that Mahindra service workshops won’t need any hydraulic lifts to do Bolero checkups.

This simple jovial tweet was enough to make Balakrishna fans angry. They even started campaigns like #BoycottMahindra and #BanMahindra as well. Clearly they didn’t get the wit that Mr. Mahindra portrayed in his tweet regarding the gravity defying unrealistic stunt. Also, it seems that the video of the 1,600 kilogram weighing car being lifted by one hand has been removed from Twitter due to the angry reactions from Balakrishna fans.
