Why question the ‘priest’ for failed marriage — can Anurag Kashyap answer this Dharmendra Pradhan question?

Anurag Kashyap made a tweet and it made even more headlines than his films. The tweet aimed at PM Narendra Modi and the recent subjugation India has been facing to terrorism did not go unnoticed in the chatter going on post the Uri attacks.

Anurag Kashyap made a tweet and it made even more headlines than his films. The tweet aimed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in the wake of recent attacks by terrorists from Pakistan, did not go unnoticed on social media.

Amidst controversy over the ban on Pakistani artistes in India, Anurag has asked the Prime Minister to apologise for his visit to Nawaz Sharif’s house last year. Anurag’s argument: If the PM can visit Pakistan, then why should there be a restriction on Pakistani actors’ participation in Indian films.

Anurag’s statement against the PM invited severe criticism from several quarters, including the Bollywood. Anurag spoke in favour of Pakistani artistes to show his support for the release of Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, which is in limbo because of the presence of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in it.

He expressed his disappointment with the BJP as he felt the party is acting “redundant” by blaming the film industry for wrong reasons.

And now to answer back Kashyap’s questions, BJP leader and Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan has come forward. Pradhan tagged Anurag in a tweet saying if the friendship agenda between the two nations failed, that doesn’t mean the Bollywood director should blame the PM.

Pradhan added that celebrities should be watchful of what they say as people look up to them. But despite all, Kashyap remained stuck to his point with a series of tweets and retweets saying anyone who questions his love for the country by shouting , must prove their love by representing the country either on the border or prove their love by representing the country in an “honourable” way.

But then Anurag hasn’t yet replied to Pradhan’s question. Can he?
