Hema Malini wrote, "Deepika, All good wishes on ur engagement! Pray God both of u have a bright future, happiness & joy in ur life together."

The fans and her followers were shocked to know that Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is currently shooting for her upcoming debut Hollywood film 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage' in Canda, has got secretly engaged.

Twitter was straightaway plunged into thrilled confusion.

Fans started questioning about the same, and wanting to know if Deepika and rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh secretly got engaged.

Two hours later, Hema issued a clarification: "No no! This is Deepika who is following me on Twitter! Not Ms Padukone!"

By then Twitter was in a frenzy.

Hema's tweet meant for a newly-engaged follower was intercepted by Deepika Padukone's fans, who instantly and erroneously assumed it The Dimpled One who Hemaji was congratulating.

What's in a name? Turns out, a lot - if you happen to share yours with a celebrity.
