Kochi: Bollywood actresses are certainly very popular across the nation but it seems their popularity has been taken a little too seriously by Kerala Staff Selection Commission.
A report in a leading national daily claims that the Combined Graduate Level Exam conducted by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC), Kerala, asked candidates to name Bollywood's tallest actress and gave a choice of four.
Here's the question:
"Q: Who among the following actresses is the tallest in height?
"A: (a) Huma Qureshi (b) Katrina Kaif (c) Deepika Padukone (d) Preity Zinta "
NDTV reports that SSC chairman A Bhattacharya apologised later and said, "It is improper, abominable, substandard... we are very upset and deeply sorry."
The question in government exam led to a frenzy on Twitter with people mocking the state govt.
Here're some of the tweets:
