It is written in the face
‘The political picture of the country is getting clearer, is it getting more messed up or getting tangled? Speaking against the central government is not treason, the Supreme Court has given this opinion and at the same time artists and directors of cinema, who speak against the Modi government, have started getting ‘income tax’ raids. Prominent among them are Taapsee Pannu, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl and distributor Madhu Mantena. More than 30 targets were raided in Mumbai-Pune. Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap keep expressing their views openly.
The question arises because the behavior and work of the Hindi cine world is clean and transparent, exceptions only to Taapsee and Anurag Kashyap. Many great cinematic idols of the cine world adopted a bizarre role in the context of the peasant movement. Not only did he support the farmers, on the contrary, the people who were supporting the farmers from all over the world said that these festival idols said that this is an interference in our country. But few people like Taapsee and Anurag Kashyap stood in favor of the peasant movement. They are paying for it.
These raids have taken place in the context of a transaction carried out in 2011. These people set up a ‘production house’ and this is a matter related to their tax. According to which the income tax has raided, it can be said that there is something wrong. But, why were these people chosen only to conduct raids or to take action? Are the crores of rupees that are flying in your ‘Bollywood’ everyday, did they come from the flow of Ganga water? But when stuck somewhere, there have been dancing and speaking at the behest of the government. Some of them are self-respecting and made of different soil.
It is written about Anurag Kashyap in Saamana, ‘This is what he has to say. Their views may not agree, but they have every right to express their views. When Deepika Padukone went to JNU and met the students there, she was also armed with a hidden movement and boycott. There was an attempt to flop Deepika’s film in a planned manner. A dirty campaign was launched against him on social media. Who are all those who do it or what ideology, leave it. But it is certain that by doing such works, they are not increasing the prestige of the country.
