Apart from his movies, Anurag Kashyap is also known for his stands against the bullies of media and political parties. His movie Udta Punjab recently made headlines due to several cuts it had to have. The filmmaker is fed up of everything going on in the industry nowadays. He took to Twitter first to explain his point and asking a question to PM Modi. Unfortunately it got misunderstood according to the filmmaker. He feels unfortunate to explain his intentions behind the tweets to PM Modi via this Facebook post.
Here’s the tweet-
@narendramodi Sir you haven't yet said sorry for your trip to meet the Pakistani PM.. It was dec 25th. Same time KJo was shooting ADHM? Why?

In a recent post on Facebook, the filmmaker wrote, “I am tired of the film industry being soft targets. We are damned if we do, damned if we don’t! When we don’t involve ourselves, they ask “why is Bollywood quiet now?” When we involve ourselves, we become the scapegoats to distract you from the real news.”
The filmmaker merely wants to say that if we are the people who elected them then they should be there to help us fight the bullies of media and other people.
He added, “And when the governing party’s designated members don’t respond in hours of crisis because they are second guessing the mood of the PM then I would rather talk straight to the PM himself. There was also sarcasm in the tweet that followed; ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ was for those mindless trollers who constantly ask for proof of your patriotism. Apparently thats all it takes. It was a jibe at them. Patriotic slogans don’t absolve you from it all. I hope this explains .. ”
