Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s heart is in the right place, but where the actress’ head is… we’re not entirely sure. The actress recently suggested that George Orwell’s classic tale Animal Farm, which is an allegorical work on the Russian Revolution, should be included in Council of School Certificate Examination’s (CISCE) syllabus. The reason? It will teach children to treat animals with compassion. At least, she’s well-intentioned, if not well-read. While the faux pas made her the butt of all jokes on the internet, the story doesn’t have an entirely fun ending, in fact, it concludes in a shocking manner. It has been reported that a furious Shilpa sacked one of the members of her PR team over the incident.

After getting a lot of flak, the Dhadkan actress’ PR team came forth, saying that it was to blame for relying on the Google reviews on books about animals and farming, according to a report in DNA. While it may not have ended too well for the hapless PR person, the mistake did get us some great zingers on Twitter. The hashtag #ShilpaShettyReviews churned out some great one liners like, “The Hunger Games is a great series on Karwa Chauth.”

When the jokes refused to die down, Shilpa addressed the issue on Twitter. She wrote, “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.”
