New Delhi:

Hindi film director Anurag Kashyap launched a scathing attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on twitter on Sunday. Targeting the Prime Minister for the anti-Pak actors campaign, Kashyap said that Modi should apologised for his trip to meet Pak PM in December 2015, whilst Karan Johar is facing loss of crores for shooting in Pakistan in October same year.

Udta Punjab producer Kashyap on Saturday came out in support of Karan Johar, whose multi-million project Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been boycotted from four states after Cinema Owners Association condemned the movie as it stars Pak actor Fawad Khan.

“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”

Further extending his attack on PM, Kashyap tweeted:

“@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?”

Anurag Kashyap, who is famous for his choice of daring topics for movies like Black Friday, further plead that whilst PM trip was paid from tax payers’ pocket, Karan Johar’s movie was a business investment.
