The actor recently shared snaps of his 'Shiva' tattoo through his social-media account but soon after he started receiving negative tweets and hurtful comments which led him to delete his pics.
Some of the tweeters expressed their angst over Kunal's decision to get the 'Shiva' inked on his right leg.
In his defense, Kunal said that he decided to get the tattoo as his way to express his devotion and not to "disrespect god".
"For some of you who have taken offence to my tattoo, I endured 7 hours of pain to make it a part of my body. Only after a lot of thought and artistic and personal consideration, I chose to do it where I have," Kunal tweeted.
"I would never disrespect the god that I love so much so as to make him a part of me for the rest of my life. My heart and conscience are clean," he added.

Putting all the negative wrath to rest, the actor later tweeted saying "The only reason I'm even writing this is because I won't let anyone take that away from me by saying hurtful things and misconstruing my silence".
Kunal seems to be in no mood to let these negative replies and hurtful comments destroy his moment of peace and devotion.
