Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma just learnt the importance of Google the hard way.


As the world mourned former President APJ Kalam's death, Anushka, much like everyone else, tweeted her condolences, but unlike everyone else, made a major boo boo.

She tweeted:  Very sad to hear about the passing of ABJ kalam Azad. Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP.


Twitteratti tore into her for getting the name wrong. So Anushka deleted the tweet and made posted another message where she got the name wrong again. "Praying for the soul of 'APJ Kalam Azad", the tweet said.


That's when Google probably helped and she got the name right. "Very sad to hear about the passing of APJ Abdul Kalam . Loss of an inspiring visionary and a wonderful soul. May his soul RIP", the tweet read.
