anurag kashyap, narendra modi, anurag kashyap narendra modi, anurag kashyap tweet, anurag kashyap narendra modi twitter Anurag Kashyap has lent his support to filmmaker Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Anurag Kashyap lent support to Karan Johar, whose upcoming directorial venture Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featuring Fawad Khan is facing trouble after cinema owners association decided to stall the release of movies starring Pakistani artistes. Now Kashyap has yet again raised his voice and this time on nobody else but India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The filmmaker took to Twitter and wrote, “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?” Kashyap was referring to PM Modi’s unscheduled detour to visit Nawaz Sharif on December 25, 2015.

In fact, the director didn’t stop there. He tweeted a couple of more questions pointing at PM Modi. He asked him, “why is it that we have to face it while you can be silent??” adding that PM Modi actually diverted his trip to Pakistan on our tax money. This, while the film was shot with the money on which someone here pays interest. The series of Tweets surely portray the kind of frustration Kashyap has over being a filmmaker and also resonates the trouble the artistes from the Indian film industry face. In another tweet, he wrote “The world must learn from us.. We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it.. #ADHM . With you on this @karanjohar.”

Check out all the tweets Anurag Kashyap posted here.

Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) yesterday announced that they would not screen movies starring Pakistani artistes in the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa.

KJo’s movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead. The decision taken by the COEAI mainly covers single screen theatres and comes amid tensions between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the Uri attack last month. Johar tweeted, “See you at the cinemas on the 28th of this month! #AeDilKiDiwali”.

Many industry people including Om Puri, Shyam Benegal, Vikram Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt and Censor Board Chief Pahalaj Nihalani have slammed the ban on the release of the film which is ready for its release on the Diwali weekend this month.

        Emotions running high with opinions split among readers. Whatever be the stand taken by readers i.e for or against the ban on Pak artists, one can fairly say that none are anti nationals. Freedom to express without fear is reason enough to celebrate maturity of our democracy.

          Coward people in India may paint this move as stupidity, but it protrays the bitter truth. Govt of India allows these artist to come India, suck our blood and make their career with their homeland citizenship, Govt intelligence agencies know every move of them, but they allow them,, and then film makers are "threatened by MNS gundas" to boycott them, why? It simply means that only Bharatiya Jhagada Party and Allies will do business with stan and earn all the money.. no othe is allowed!!!! lt;br/gt;What about trade? Why it is not banned? Is it that only BJP supporters and allies can do that trade?

                Anurag's Kashyap's last tweet actually sums it up. He is indeed dumb and he doesn't get it. With a failed marriage and making bad movies he is in race for the top slot for the biggest dopes of twitter along with Kamaal Rashid Khan and Kapil Sharma.

                  ANurag Kashyap is dumb guy who is interested in his business and making money for his family. He does not understand the PM of a country and his duties. He does not have any common sense. He is a parasite depending on people to watch his movies. It is very unfortunate of us.

                    Anurag Kashyap, this country is not exclusive property of you and Karan Johar. Modi has been given mandate to govern this country for 5 years by the people of India. I can understand that you have hatred against PM Modi but you have to accept the reality. I can not enjoy song and dance of a when my neighbour is shot dead by terrorist and his family members are weeping.

                      A PM seeing another PM can no way be compared with foreign artists coming and working to earn money.Modi met Sheriff in the interest of good relations between the 2 countries.This is not a commercial trip.The Pak artists have come at a wrong time.Mr. Kashyap out of frustration blames something for something else.He has got his priorities completely wrong.

                          This pungiwala Kashyap, with few dirty cinemas and looting public money becomes self proclaimed intellectual. This is the time to put this dirty man (kashyap who stands with terror state) along with congies at the border to fight with terror state. When the country is struggling to solve poverty with limited resources, billions are wasted to counter the terror state and JIHADI DOCTRINE since the independence. This is the time for 1.3 billion to unite for destruction of terror state along with its supporters.

                            The intention of the PM while inviting PM of stan on his swearing in Ceremony and thereafter making a trip to stan to meet the stan PM was good ,but the problem is that there is no positive response from the other side .Even after so many years and so many talks between leaders of both the Countries ,ultimately stan Leaders get struck on the issue of Kashmir and thus no progress can be made . Our Country has always desired to resolve the issues by holding talks ,but other side believes in trying to solve the problem by use of its forces and some millitants group there dont want peace to prevail in both the Countries. In view of same our political leaders who have attempted to resolve the difference by trying to shake hands with their counterparts in the other Country cant be blamed as their attempts are not in a position to get positive results in view of happenings from across the border.

                                        Anurag looks to be running after money. He must learnt Modi went there to ask stan to stop terrirism and not earning money. He has more inclined to earn money than Desh Prem.lt;br/gt;He should and critise why stan has banned Dhoni flim.lt;br/gt;Anurag is biased and lost his sense.
