At a time when the entire nation wants to know what awaits their fate for the next five years, actor Sunny Leone’s name started trending on Twitter.

Arnab Goswami – Television news presenter and Editor-in-chief of news channel Republic TV is the reason behind this unlikely trend. While anchoring a show where he was discussing the probable outcome of the Lok Sabha elections, he accidentally took the name of Sunny Leone instead of actor-turned-politician Sunny Deol.

Bollywood actor and Bharatiya Janata Party’s Sunny Deol is contesting elections for the first time from Punjab’s Gurdaspur parliamentary constituency. While talking about the vote count and early trends from Punjab, Arnab Goswami had a major foot-in-mouth moment and said: “Sunny Leone…Sunny Deol is leading from Gurdaspur”.

Soon, Sunny Leone too responded to the viral hashtag with a witty comeback. She tweeted: “Leading by how many votes?” The Twitterati loved her response and pat her back for being such a sport.

Manforce India, which has Sunny Leone as its brand ambassador, was quick to share a tweet on the issue.

"Dear Arnab, we understand. She is always on our mind as well," the tweet says adding the hashtag #TheNationKnows
