Shilpa Shetty confused the word 'gantantra' (republic) with 'swatantra' (freedom), which didn't go down well with the netizens. Many young netizens schooled her over her negligence and even advised her that she should have written in English rather than writing incorrectly in Hindi.

However, as soon as the actor faced the ire of trolls, she corrected the words, but the damage was done by then. Tweeple showed no mercy and are still trolling her left, right and centre.

"Bahattarwe (72nd) Gantantra Diwas ki dheron shubhkaamnayein. Happy Republic Day to every Indian. Let's pledge to uphold the rights & duties that our constitution has given us... not only for ourselves but also for each of our fellow citizens. Jai Hind! (sic)"

Check out some of the tweets. 

Taapsee made a goof up and wrote 71st Republic Day instead to 72nd Republic Day. As she had Tweeted early in the morning, she rectified the minor typo, and that's the reason her goof-up didn't come into the light. However few netizens by then had taken a screenshot of her Tweet.
