New Delhi [India], Oct. 16 (ANI): Voicing his support for Karan Johar's forthcoming film 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the ban on Pakistani artistes, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and questioned him as to why he hasn't yet apologized for meeting his counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

The 44-year-old Bollywood celeb took to twitter to fire a series of questions and vile comments addressing the Prime Minister.

"@narendramodi Sir you haven't yet said sorry for your trip to meet the Pakistani PM.. It was december 25th. Same time KJo was shooting ADHM? Why?", he tweeted.

He further raised questions saying, "@narendramodi Why is it that we have to face it while you can be silent??

"@narendramodi And you actually diverted your trip on our tax money while the film shot then was on money on which someone here pays interest."

"@narendramodi I am just trying to understand the situation because I am actually dumb and I don't get it. Sorry if you feel offended," he said.

Adding, "Btw Bharat Mata ki Jai Sir @narendramodi."

The comments came as a follow-up of his satirical tweet earlier, which read, "The world must learn from us. We solve all our problems by blaming it on movies and banning it.. #ADHM . With you on this @karanjohar."

The film writer-director cum-producer expressed his annoyance on social media after cinema owners association decided to stay the release of movies starring Pakistani artistes.

The Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) earlier announced that they would not screen movies starring Pakistani artistes in the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa. (ANI)
