Meanwhile, Siddharth spoke about stars' access to their fans through Twitter, but he ended his conversation with a tweet, "Wash your feet & leave your hate at the door. It you don't it'll be you who loses that privilege to be part of this..left shouting. Alone... Agree or disagree all you want. The moment you question anyone's right to an opinion, well that just makes you a bully, a terrorist even."
