Shilpa Shetty reacts to ‘Animal Farm’ gaffe: ‘Never complain, never explain’


Shilpa Shetty Kundra gave it back to Twitteratis who mocked her over her misinterpretation of George Orwell’s book ‘Animal Farm’.

In a series of tweets, the 41-year-old actress said that although she admires the writers of ‘The Lord of the Rings’, ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Animal Farm’, she hasn't read any of the mentioned books. Therefore, recommending them to kids was certainly out of question and that there probably was a misunderstanding.

“Whilst I admire the writers of LOTR, Harry Potter & Animal Farm I've "NEVER" read these books(@ the cost of soundin even dumber!)Not my kind ..So recommending them to kids is out of the question! Obviously some misunderstanding..Don't want to get into it.This too shall pass,” the ‘Dhadakan’ actress wrote.

Shilpa also posted a picture message on Instagram which read, ‘Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.’ Beneath the picture, she wrote, “So Mom says, When you are a Celebrity "Never complain and Never Explain." Love must be unconditional... mine stays.”

Reacting to the decision of the Council of School Certificate Examination (CISCE) to include ‘Harry Potter’ series in the English Literature syllabus for junior and middle school students, Shilpa had stated, "… Even ‘Animal Farm’ should be included as it will teach the little ones to love and care for animals.”

George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ was a political satire of erstwhile Soviet Union ruled by Joseph Stalin.

Soon, twitteratis had a field day making fun of the actress posting jokes about other books under the hashtag #ShilpaShettyReviews.
