Director Anubhav Sinha on Monday tweeted an open letter directed at trolls who he claimed had attacked the trailer of his upcoming film 'Mulk', about a Muslim family that is forced to prove its loyalty to India after one of their members is found involved in a terrorism case.
In his post, Sinha said he pitied those who had criticised the movie, which examines institutionalised Islamophobia in the country and is said to be based on true events. There was a huge backlash in the social media world as many alleged the film-maker for getting funded by Dawood Ibrahim or terrorist organizations. Sinha thought of writing an open letter to all the trolls and wrote a lengthy letter for every negative comment thrown on Mulk's trailer.
Addressing all the trolls Sinha wrote "You don't have a name or face." He continued writing"Your family can't tell anyone what you do. Your parents aren't proud of you, your sister isn't, your brother isn't and worst, you don't have a future."
Sinha concluded saying, "Mulk is a very nice film." He wrote "It is not doing what you think it is doing. It is not about your masters. Hindus or Muslims. It is about you and it is about me and mostly it is about us. Please do write back the real nasty ones, but do go watch the film. You will still like it, because I know, a bit of you is still alive inside you."
