Popular Television actress Shruti Seth criticized Prime Minister Modi’s #SelfiewithDaughter campaign on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

“A selfie is not a device to bring about change Mr. PM Try reform. #selfieobsessedPM,” she tweeted.

This didn’t go well amongst the Modi followers, where they started tweeting angry and trolling messages in her timeline. However, this did not affect Shruti and she responded to them all saying “I love trolls”.

Shruti, known for shows like ‘Shararat’, ‘Comedy Circus’ and ‘Baal Veer’ further criticized the PM tweeting, “Those defending the #selfie plan by the PM FYI change is needed in the illiterate parts where ‘no front facing camera phones exist’. Think.” She even boldly addressed the Prime Minister saying “Seriously get over your selfie obsession Mr. PM. Be more than a photograph. Come on!”

“Morning all the lifeless people on my TL. I get it you guys are BJP fans. Good for you. Now go do something constructive with your day. Bye!”

“And before you continue your mindless, senseless rants about me & my life just check WHO is following WHOM. Says a lot. A lot. Now continue”

After she got bored of trolls, she tweeted:

“Ok now I'm bored of you trolls. Moving on to do better things with my day. But don't let that stop you guys. Carry on with my blessings Bye.”
