Sharing the viral clip on Twitter, Richa Chadha tweeted, “Raise your sons better! A bunch of ugly, cowards attacking a lone woman in a pack and feeling proud of it ? WHAT LOSERS! Shameful. They’ll be jobless, more frustrated and penniless in a few years. What poor upbringing! No sympathy, no redemption for them.”

South superstar and politician Kamal Haasan too took to micro-blogging site and wrote the ongoing situation in his neighbouring state is ‘causing him distress’. “What’s happening in Karnataka is causing me distress. A poisonous wall of communalism is being raised among innocent students. What’s happening in our neighbouring state should not come to Tamil Nadu. It is time for all progressive forces to be more vigilant than before,” he wrote in Tamil.
