Mumbai: Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has shared a cryptic tweet, and many netizens feel the tweet is aimed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's beach clean-up initiative at Mahabalipuram.
"He's a bad actor and we like bad acting," tweeted the "Article 15" director on Saturday night.
He’s a bad actor and we like bad acting.— Anubhav Sinha (@anubhavsinha) October 12, 2019
Since yesterday, many of you have been asking - what is it that I was carrying in my hands when I went plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 13, 2019
It is an acupressure roller that I often use. I have found it to be very helpful. pic.twitter.com/NdL3rR7Bna
Plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram this morning. It lasted for over 30 minutes.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 12, 2019
Also handed over my ‘collection’ to Jeyaraj, who is a part of the hotel staff.
Let us ensure our public places are clean and tidy!
Let us also ensure we remain fit and healthy. pic.twitter.com/qBHLTxtM9y
Soon, netizens started playing the guessing game. Many assumed the filmmaker had hinted at Prime Minister Modi, who on Saturday shared pictures of his beach clean-up drive at Mahabalipuram.
Sharing a picture of the PM under Sinha's tweet, one user replied: "Modiji ke baat kar rahe ho sir Hume pata hai (Sir we know you are talking about Modi ji). "
Another shared a picture of the PM and wrote: "Yeh admi meri baat kar raha hai" (this man is talking about me)".
Another comment reads: But bad actors, too, can teach good things. Worth commending that if PM can, we can too. Only need is to find our own inspiration."
Users also speculated if the filmmaker was not very fond of the Prime Minister and hence was tweeting indirect jibes.
On the work front, Anubhav Sinha has just wrapped up the shoot of his next film "Thappad" in Lucknow. The film features Taapsee Pannu, Manav Kaul, Ratna Pathak Shah and Dia Mirza. It is slated to release on the occasion of Women's Day next year, which falls on March 8.
Sinha has another film lined up named "Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai", where actress Richa Chadha will be seen essaying the role of a sex worker.
