Anurag Kashyap is an Indian film director, writer, editor, producer and actor known for his works in Hindi cinema. He is the recipient of several accolades, including a National Film Award, and four Filmfare Awards. He is very much known among Tamil audience for his role as a villain in Nayanthara’s Imaikkaa Nodigal.
Anurag currently not in a right phase of his life it seems. Months ago, he tweeted to say that a random Instagram user threatens to rape his daughter. “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.” the tweet of Anurag said.
Kashyap later filed an FIR at the Amboli police station in Mumbai against the troll who had threatened his daughter. The filmmaker who has frequently criticised the Prime Minister, now left twitter for a serious reason.
In his last tweet, Anurag Kashyap wrote, “When your parents start to get calls and your daughter gets online threats you know that no one wants to talk.There isn’t going to be reason or rationale. Thugs will rule and thuggery will be the new way of life. Congratulations everyone on this new india & hope you all thrive.”
He then tweeted, “Wish you all the happiness and success. This would be my last tweet as i leave twitter. When i won’t be allowed to speak my mind without fear then i would rather not speak at all. Goodbye.”
As soon as posting these tweets, the actor and filmmaker deleted his twitter account :
Here’s some of the reactions for this activity of him :
Very sad that @anuragkashyap72 have deleted his @Twitter account today. It is sad & bad for democracy when we cant voice our opinion without fear. His Right to say was our Responsibility as a Nation. #AnuragKashyap, please come back, we are all with you 🙏

On the work front, The filmmaker is all set to return with the second season of his popular and acclaimed Netflix series, Sacred Games on Independence Day. As the clock ticks for the premiere of the new season, Kashyap recently said the pressure of living up to expectation is heavy, but he is happy with the content.
“I feel the pressure is more this time. When we started the first season, we had no idea of the impact we were going to create. So, we could do just what we wanted to do,” Kashyap told IANS during a set visit of the show.
