A few posts addressed the hot topic of fake news. "Agar main prime minister hota to fake news banane walo ko faansi laga deta [If I were the prime minister, those who spread fake news would have been hanged]."
A few of the tweets used colourful terms in Hindi. Some were also targeted at a journalist "who only spread(s) negativity about me for very little money".

The complaint also stated that Sharma is very disturbed by comments like a "failed actor. celebrity out of control, choice of wrong life partner".
