Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and Anushka Sharma

After Jharkhand education minister became the butt of all jokes on social media for paying homage to former Indian president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam much before he passed away, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma's misspelt tweet has become a hot topic of discussion on the micro-blogging site since Monday.

While paying her condolence to the Missileman of India on Twitter, the "PK" actress committed embarrassing mistakes: "Very sad to hear about the passing of ABJ Kalam Azad. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul .May his soul RIP."

After Twitterati pointed out the mistakes in her post, the actress deleted it and tweeted again, writing incorrect name yet again. This time she called the legendary as "APJ Kalam Azad".

Anushka could write the name of Kalam correctly only in her third attempt.

By that time, social media users had taken the screen shots of her bloopers and were shared widely online, following which the actress was trolled for her ignorance.

Ironically, the actress did not correct "the passing of" in any of her tweets.

Meanwhile, former IPS officer and BJP leader Kiran Bedi also angered Twitterati by tweeting "It needed a Vajpayee to identify a Kalam" on Monday.
