While her Lok Sabha constituency, Mathura, remained on edge following the death of 24 people, including SP (City) in clashes with encroachers, BJP MP Hema Malini tweeted pictures of her shooting for a film and hoping for its early release.

In those images, the 67-year-old veteran actor was seen in a maroon sari, posing for the camera in Mumbai’s Madh Island.

“Hoping for an early release of this film,” she captioned one of the photos, without revealing the name of the film.

Soon after her indifference to the Mathura clashes was noted on Twitter, she quickly deleted her tweets and instead posted:

 

Twenty-four people, including an SP and an SHO, have been killed in a massive clash between police and members of Swadheen Bharat Subhash Sena (SBSS) who had encroached on government land in Mathura. Police has seized a large cache of munition from the site and has arrested over 370 people.
