Kashyap breaches privacy of female journalist for Pak artistes
Anurag Kashyap

Mumbai: Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap lands himself in another controversy before being trolled on social media for making phone number of a female journalist public.

The journalist wanted the version of Kashyap over his recent round of questioning to PM Narendra Modi over ban on Pakistani artistes but the director, rather unethically, posted the chat on social media giant Facebook, showing her number.

Anurag had taken up the cause of director Karan Johar, whose upcoming flick Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has been on tenterhook as some right wings organisation are demanding ban on movie because of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan being in its cast.

Kashyap had infuriated the Modi supporters for questioning his unplanned visit to Pakistan and meeting Nawaz Sharif last year on December 25.

He said in his tweet, “Sir you haven't yet said sorry for your trip to meet the Pakistani PM.. It was dec 25th. Same time KJo was shooting ADHM? Why? why is it that we have to face it while you can be silent??"

While he was already facing the heat on social networks for drilling PM Modi, the director made another blunder by sharing a screenshot of his WhatsApp chat with the journalist on Facebook. The journalist wanted the director to reply over the ongoing controversy which Kashyap disliked.

Anurag received a lot of flak and backlash from far and wide, for this post of his. He captioned the photo, “There is the media outside my house when I am not there . . . looking for headline.”
