Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri took to Twitter and reacted to Anurag Kashyap’s recent ‘mob is out of control now’ comment. Anurag had made this statement after Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers to stop commenting on films. Reacting to this, Vivek tweeted, “Audience is ‘mob’ now? Wow! Wow! Wow!” PM Modi had said that unnecessary remarks on irrelevant issues such as movies put the party’s development agenda on the backburner. Anurag said that it was too late for PM Modi’s comment to make a difference. Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit, the president of the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA), came out in support of PM Modi’s statement. He said that the PM’s statement was a boost of confidence for the film industry.
