Payal Rohatgi triggers row with post on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s caste, the apologises


Mumbai: After kicking up a controversy by posting a tweet on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s ‘caste’, actor Payal Rohatgi Monday apologised, but not before she drew flak on social media and from political parties.

“Chhatrapati shivaji maharaja was born in shudra varna in family of farmers and by sacred thread ceremony and remarriage to his spouse made a kshtriaya so that he could be coronated King. So people from one Varna could go to another Varna if they acquired that skill. No casteism?” the actor said in a tweet on Sunday.
