In the now deleted tweet, she wrote “Ayurveda” along with the names of Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan. Twitterati felt that she has misspelled the name, and she meant to write either Aishwarya or Aaradhya.
It was not long before memes and trolls started flooding the internet over the apparent ‘auto-correct’ error of Juhi Chawla.
