Now, actor Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor Farhan Akhtar has tweeted in support of Arjun Tendulkar.

The actor wrote that calling Arjun Tendulkar's selection as nepotism is harsh and unfair. He praised Arjun's dedication as they visit the same gym and requested fans that to not tamper his enthusiasm even before he has begun. Farhan Akhtar wrote, "I feel I should say this about #Arjun_Tendulkar. We frequent the same gym & I’ve seen how hard he works on his fitness, seen his focus to be a better cricketer. To throw the word ‘nepotism’ at him is unfair & cruel. Don’t murder his enthusiasm & weigh him down before he’s begun."

While many netizens lauded Farhan Akhtar for his words, he even received backlash from many. His girlfriend Shibani Dandekar retweeted the same post and wrote, "THIS!!!" showing her agreement with him. Check out Farhan Akhtar's post below:
