What did you achieve when you were 21? Did you leave home to follow your passion? Did you win a medal for the country? It is currently the million-dollar question that’s trending on Twitter. From people sharing jokes to seriously listing out their achievements at the young age, the social media platform is buzzing with activity. So much so that Kangana Ranaut, too, took part in the #at21 challenge. However, the actor got mercilessly trolled by netizens as usual.

It all started after 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi was arrested for allegedly editing the toolkit shared by Greta Thunberg. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “Arrest of 21 yr old Disha Ravi is an unprecedented attack on Democracy. Supporting our farmers is not a crime (sic).”

Soon, Twitterati started sharing posts about how age is just a number. “Left home at the age of 15 my father refused to help me in my struggle, was on my own, was captured by underworld mafia at 16.

At 21 I had squashed all villains in my life, was a successful actress a national award winner owner of my first house in Mumbai city posh location Bandra (sic),” tweeted Kangana, taking part in the challenge.

A Twitter user hit back, “From a National award winner to a National nuisance, the journey has been rather quick (sic)!”

Another user wrote, “From earning a doctorate, to becoming a troll, and commenting on an actors tweet, your journey has been rather quick and downwards (sic).”
