- On Tuesday, two videos of Sonakshi went crazy viral on Twitter
- The hashtag 'AsliSonaArrested' trended on Twitter all of Tuesday
- Sonakshi Sinha posted a clarification on her Instagram story
Khandaani Shafakhana actress Sonakshi Sinha posted a clarification on her Instagram story on Tuesday evening after a few videos of her, being re-shared with the trending hashtag '#AsliSonaArrested', left her fans concerned and also confused on Twitter. For the uninitiated, 'AsliSona' is Sonakshi's moniker for her social media profiles. "Hey guys, I know there are some concerning videos doing the rounds. It's me but then that's not the entire truth. I will share everything in detail with you all soon," the 32-year-old actress wrote on her Instagram story. Earlier on Tuesday, a video of a security personnel putting handcuffs on Sonakshi Sinha went crazy viral and was followed by another one in which the actress, still in handcuffs, can be seen escorted away from what appears to be a green room. "You can't arrest me like this. Do you know who I am? I have not done anything. How can you arrest me like that?" Sonakshi can be heard saying in one the videos.
While the '#AsliSonaArrested' hashtag may seem like "Sonakshi is in trouble", as put by some of her fans on Twitter, the actress' statement appears to suggest that the videos could be part of a promotional strategy ahead of a new announcement.
Ahead of Sonakshi's clarification, her fans on Twitter remained extremely confused and worried, constantly asking for updates. However, a section of the Internet warned fellow netizens, branding Sonakshi's videos as a "publicity stunt". Here's just a glimpse of how Twitter reacted.
