Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has been openly criticising the man in power Prime Minister Narendra Modi on several occasions now over rape threats to his daughter. The filmmaker’s bio on his Twitter handle reads: ‘Neither Left nor Right or Centre. I am Diagonal’ and his opinions are equally blunt too reflecting his ideologies. After Modi wave took over the nation with a storm post his win yesterday (May 23), Anurag took to Twitter and congratulated PM Modi for his second innings. But he also had a question for him. And his concern is not as a filmmaker, but as a father. Read on to know the complete story.

Anurag’s bold statements and open criticism about the PM have bought him severe backlash. Disturbingly, the backlash has even extended to his daughter. Many alleged ‘bhakts’ have been posting rape threats and derogatory messages on Aaliya Kashyap’s social media handles. Anurag bought this to the netizen’s notice and also tagged the PM. Anurag wrote, “Dear @narendramodi sir. Congratulations on your victory and thank you for the message of inclusiveness. Sir please also tell us how do we deal with these followers of yours who celebrate your victory by threatening my daughter with messages like this for me being your dissenter.” He also attached a screenshot that had a comment that was extremely distasteful and abusive.

“Lage Raho Munna Bhai” one of the most iconic movies of Bollywood is slated to be screened at IFFI in Goa between 23rd to 25th November 2019 as an initiative taken by Saksham Trust for the visually impaired to access the joy of cinema through audio description.

Audio description is a brilliant innovation that dramatically enhances the accessibility of films through its additional narration that translates visual information and non dialogue portions into spoken words so that the visually impaired can also access and enjoy films as much as others do.

Rajkumar Hirani is one of the few filmmakers to have contributed to this cause, with “PK” being one of the first films with audio description and “SANJU” to have released with audio description through a special App devised by XL cinema while it was still running in cinema halls.

On the occasion of Children’s day this year, Saksham Trust has also screened “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” in Delhi, to promote the message of Gandhian values amongst the visually impaired children as the film remains extremely popular and close to the heart of the nation.
