Just days after BJP MLA Ram Kadam faced backlash over his "will kidnap girl" remarks, he has landed into another trouble.
This time, Kadam posted a tweet condoling the death of Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in the US.
Kadam tweeted in Marathi that "Bollywood and Marathi diva" Sonali Bendre "has passed away in America" and condoled her demise.
After he was trolled for believing a baseless rumour, he deleted the message and posted another tweet, saying, "About Sonali Bendre ji, it was rumour for the last two days. I pray to god for her good health and speedy recovery."

Bendre revealed in July that she has been diagnosed with a "high grade cancer" and is undergoing treatment in the US.
On Monday, Kadam sparked off a storm of protest with his remarks at a Dahi Handi (Janmashtami) celebration in Mumbai.
A video clip showed him saying that youngsters often seek his help after girls reject their proposals.
"Come with your parents. What will I do if your parents approve? I will kidnap the girl and hand her over to you," he was heard telling the crowd.
