The acclaimed Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap is at it again. A day after his inflammatory tweet called Amit Shah 'a beast that history will spit on', Kashyap made a new post to social media, this time calling the Home Minister a 'cannibal.'
"Apologies. I should have called him a man-eater, not a beast," the 'Gangs of Wasseypur' maker said in his latest tweet.
गलती हो गयी । जानवर नहीं कहना चाहिए था । नरभक्षी कहना चाहिए था ।— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) January 27, 2020
Kashyap also took a potshot at the supporters of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP): "Bhakts are spitting on me today. They are defiant but a man-eater will remain a man-eater."
कितने ही लोग आज ट्विटर पर थूक रहे हैं मेरे ऊपर और फिर भाग भाग के तौलिया/रूमाल ढूँढ रहे हैं अपना फ़ोन साफ़ करने के लिए । भक्त हैं कि मानते नहीं हैं । नरभक्षी तो फिर भी नरभक्षी है।— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) January 27, 2020
The film director is noted for his anti-Right political leaning and has lent his support to the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests. He often uses acerbic language to hit out at prime minister Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders.
