Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has praised filmmaker Anurag Kashyap for questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Pakistan.

“Kudos to Anurag Kashyap for questioning Modi’s visit to Pakistan… Shouldn’t Modi apologise with this logic? I supported Modi’s visit to Pakistan,” Singh tweeted on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Kashyap had expressed his support for Karan Johar, whose upcoming film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ featuring Fawad Khan’ is facing trouble after cinema owners association decided to block the release of movies which has Pakistani artistes starring in it.

He questioned Prime Minister Modi in a series of tweets as to why he didn’t apologise for meeting his Pakistani counterpart the same time when Karan Johar was shooting for his film.

He tweeted, “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?”

“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,” Kashyap tweeted.

After posting series tweets Kashyap tried to do some damage control and said, “@narendramodi I am just trying to understand the situation because I am actually dumb and I don’t get it. Sorry if you feel offended..”

The Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) had on Saturday announced that they would not screen movies starring artistes from Pakistan in the four states of Gujarat, Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra.
