Bollywood actress Payal Rohatgi caught the public’s eye on Wednesday morning as her Twitter account was suspended for unknown reasons.
Payal announced the news via her Instagram account. She also posted a video message pleading her fans to help her restore her Twitter account and to figure out the reason for her account suspension. In no time, after Payal posted her video message, netizens started to trend #BringBackPayal on Twitter
In the video message, Payal said, ” No reason has been given, no e-mail is sent on my official e-mail Id and my account has been suspended. I don’t know what the reason is. It is for all of you to figure out with Twitter India that why have they deleted my account. Neither do I abuse people nor use any wrong words for anyone. I definitely attempt to share facts, but this effort of mine has been projected in a bad light by liberals and people who are extremists, who control Twitter. Hence, I appeal to people to please urge Twitter to restore my account, otherwise, I won’t be able to talk to everyone.”
Fans tweeted in support of Payal Rohtagi and questioned Twitter for her account suspension:
Dear @twitterindia, speaking on some burning issues doesn't violate the law and decorum if the fact is genuine and moderate. I urge @twitter to please restore #PayalRohatgi account. #BringBackPayal #BringBackPayalRohtagi

क्यों @Payal_Rohatgi जी ने किसको गाली दिया, या उन्होने ऐसा क्या ट्वीट किया जिसके कारण आपने इनका अकाउंट सस्पेंड किया है ।।#PayalRohtagi #ISupportPayalRohatgi
सब लोग @TwitterIndia को टैग करके आवाज उठाइए,
हमारे बीच से एक राष्ट्रवादी बहन का आवाज बंद करने की कोशिश है ।। pic.twitter.com/rYqWr7c1uS

Shame on you @TwitterIndia .. Bring #PayalRohtagi 's twitter account back.. It's really disgusting.. We are living in such a corrupt country.. No one can raise their voice against dominant behaviour of the so called stars and the people who are handling twitter Instagram accounts

For the unknown, this isn’t the first that Payal’s account has been suspended. In the month of June, her account was suspended for a week for an abusive tweet posted by her. Payal has been recently actively posting a lot about nepotism and slamming the Bollywood stars like Sonam Kapoor and her husband Anand Ahuja, especially after Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide.
