Filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri is known to share his views on social media. He often gives befitting replies to trolls and hate messages on social media. Recently, the Kashmir Files director slammed an activist who accused veteran director Mani Ratnam of showing Muslims as terrorists in his film ‘Roja.’ But what caught everyone’s attention was that while condemning the activist, Vivek took a jibe at actress Richa Chadha.
The activist on Twitter wrote a series of posts where she claimed Mani Ratnam started the trend of portraying Muslims as terrorists. She tweeted, “The first movie in South India which portrayed Muslims as terrorists was “Roja.” In her next follow-up tweet, she added, “Maniratnam started the trend. Roja was an agenda movie produced by Balachander a soft Sanghi. ARR worked in that and every similar movie made by Mani . Roja,Bomba,Dil se etc. “Has anyone who’s questioning Ilayaraja on his work in ThevarMagan posed the same disdain and questions to ARR? On why did he work in Islamophobic movies? Which created a big impact to Muslim lives in TN in the 90s? We left him because he is feudal caste muslim? How Convinient No?” ALSO READ: Richa Chadha Gets Brutally TROLLED For Allegedly Insulting Indian Army With Her Tweet ‘Galwan Says Hi’; Netizen Says ‘Disgusting’
