Kerala is set to witness the most awaited Aruvikkara by-election on Saturday, 27 June, and Malayalam celebrities, including film and TV actors, are seen campaigning for the candidates.
However, the promotion activities by serial actress Meghna Vincent, who is known for her role Amrutha in popular Malayalam serial "Chandanamazha", has become the hot topic of discussion for people of Kerala on social media.
The actress has been campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party candidate O Rajagopal.
She started her interaction with the media by citing the example of Narendra Modi, who despite belonging to a poor family like her character in the popular serial became the Prime Minister of the country by adhering to tolerance and hardwork.
During her interaction, the actress also mentioned the poor condition of the roads in Kerala and compared it to the roads in "other countries like Dubai, Chennai and Mumbai".
"I travel to other countries for shooting, like Dubai, Chennai and even Mumbai and to save time I even apply make-up when am travelling in Chennai, but I can't do that in Kerala, due to the poor conditions of the roads in the state. This has to be changed and for this, we need to move forward like India," Meghna Vincent said.
Following this, social media users began trolling the actress for her "dumb" statements.
She was also made fun of for saying how sad she was as her brothers and sisters were working in Dubai, because Kerala is known for its unemployment despite having high literacy rate.
