Bollywood actor Adah Sharma has got worldwide recognition with her recent release ‘The Kerala Story’ where she plays the role of Shalini Unnikrishnan, a Hindu nurse, who was forced to convert to Islam after being recruited by a terror organization. While social media is abuzz with videos and photos of Adah from the movie, an old chat of the actress with a fan has gone viral and netizens are assuming that Sharma took a direct dig at Ananya Panday. Yes, you read that right!
In the old video shared by a Reddit user, a fan asked Adah if there is something she cannot do, and to this, she stated she cannot touch her nose with her tongue. This reminded many of the time when Ananya Panday appeared on the chat show Koffee With Karan and did the same. The Student of the Year 2 actress back then received backlash after a video of her touching her nose with her tongue surfaced online. Adah’s answer left many netizens wondering if she took a direct at Panday.
