Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya took the fight against Anurag Kashyap to a different level on Sunday night when he asked how he dared question Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “insignificant Pakistanis”. He also threatened Kashyap that he will not be spared.

The singer wrote in a tweet, “ये हिम्मत ? तुच्छ दुश्मन पाक आर्टिस्ट के लिए तू को question करता है, इतने गिर गए ? मगर तुम पाक प्रेमियों को छोड़ेंगे नहीं (How dare you? For insignificant Pakistani artistes you are questioning PM, you have fallen so low? You Pak lovers will not be spared).”

In an earlier tweet, Abhijeet said that after Karan Johar, they will be meted out the same treatment. The singer took to his official Twitter account to reply to Anurag’s tweet to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which read, “@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?”

Abhijeet wrote to Anurag, tagging Mahesh Bhatt and Karan Johar in the same tweet along with PM Modi, “@narendramodi_in ne pehle baaton se manane Ki koshish Ki, ab unhe laat maara, aap kataar me hain, @karanjohar ke baad @MaheshNBhatt.”

In fact, earlier in the day, addressing PM Modi on Twitter, Abhijeet said that people like him will handle “anti India Brigade” and the Prime Minister can continue making India proud. This is not the first time that Abhijeet has spoken against Karan Johar. He has targeted Karan for casting Fawad Khan in his film a number of times.

In fact, Abhijeet is not the only one to take a stand against Anurag Kashyap, hours after the director targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking apology for his Pakistan trip in December last year. Madhur Bhandarkar also slammed Kashyap for his ‘protest’. When Bhandarkar was asked about his reaction on Kashyap’s statements, he said, “Whatever Anurag Kashyap said is wrong, Neither BJP nor the Government issued any ban, it has become a trend to protest against Modi Ji.”

While all of this is leading to a discussion on Twitter, Anurag decided to keep away from naming anyone and just said that he would directly speak to PM Modi. He wrote a couple of tweets, “I refuse to live in the fear created by blind fanatics that you cannot have a conversation with your PM or question him or expect from him.”

He continued, “I would rather ask my questions directly to the PM than trying to impress him by fake nationalism of banning what puts you in news.”

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was in the eye of the storm in the aftermath of the Uri attack that killed 18 Indian soldiers. The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena threatened all Pakistani artists working in India to leave the country. Ever since, the debate on the ban of artists from the neighbouring country hasn’t died down. Recently, Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) announced that they would not screen Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan in four states, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa. A lot of people from the industry have come out in support of Johar, who will bear a lot of losses if the COEAI doesn’t change its decision on the movie that’s slated to release on October 28, just two days before Diwali.

            Anyone can question the PM. India is a democracy not a dictatorship.

              3 Marriages, all Failures. Last 3 films all flops. Actually problem with some Bollywood directors is that 3-4 hits and success goes into their heads. We are actors and we should not be questioned. They can ask n number of questions to Government, to prime Minister to Society etc etc etc. And they himself hate to be questioned. In name of Art Garb, they can say whatever they like. Actual Problem is they themselves don't know that they live in Democracy. They can ask questions, but they forget that even on this matter 70% of India Potion wants Ban on stan, So if they enjoy Democracy by asking any question even to Prime Minister, they should see the news channels and see what people want, that is the core of Democracy. Why Karan Johar in the first instance gave immature reply. Since in Democracy he can say anything. Even in Democracy people can Object and they have every right to boycott any film. Have you forgotten hiji's Non-Cooperation Movement. It was there but even then Parallely teher were Kranti Karis. If Anurag Basu or Karan Johar would have been there at that time, They would have I bet spoken in favour of Britishers. Art my Foot.
