Farhan Akhtar, son of Jawed Akhtar and brother of Zoya Akhtar,  known for his epic roles in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Rock On!!, is held under controversy due to his offensive comment on Tinder users.

“Pichle Saat Dino Me maine bahut kuch hai khoya, thanks to @Tinder”, mentioned the frustratingly talented singer and actor in his tweet.

Remembering some great guy’s once said quote, toote hue dil se hi sangeet nikalta hai, Farhan made a parody of his most famous lines from the movie, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and posted it on Faking News Network, which lead to a backlash from potential despos Tinder users.

Phone me Tinder app leke chal rahe ho toh Single ho tum, Bina DP wali ladki ko bhi right swipe kar rahe ho, toh Virgin ho tum. Match Unmatch ki duniya se azaad hoke dekho, Face to Face milke rejection seh ke dekho, Ghar tak peecha karo agar bandi se mil jaaye nigaahen, Maggi khane ki dhamki do, agar wo boyfriend ko beech me le aaye, Shakal pe tharak ki haiwaniyat leke chal rahe ho toh, Gurgaon se ho tum, Gurgaon se ho tum.

This post went viral  and was held offensive by netizens in Delhi, NCR including Gurgaon, Noida and Haryana. Khap Panchayat demanded ban on Dil Dhadakne Do and various saffronists joined the movement. Arnab in his Noise hour demanded ban on all Akhtar’s including Shoaib.

The app was held recently in controversy when President Obama right swiped to Hillary Clinton, leading to further tensions between the Obama Clinton Twitter Clash over @POTUS and @FLOTUS.

Wikipedia defines Tinder as a location-based social discovery application that facilitates communication between mutually interested users. The dating app allows users to chat with their matches.
