Mumbai, Nov 24 (PTI) Superstar Akshay Kumar on Thursday waded into the controversy over actor Richa Chadha's tweet on the 2020 deadly Galwan Valley clash, saying he is deeply saddened by her "ungrateful" comment.

In the now-deleted tweet, Chadha had written "Galwan says hi" in response to the Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi’s statement that the Indian Army is "waiting for orders from the govt (sic)" in reclaiming Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

This led to severe backlash on Twitter with many criticising her for "mocking the sacrifice" of Indian soldiers.
