After FIR files against filmmaker Shirish Kunder, he apologises for controversial tweets against UP CM

Slamming the Centre’s decision to appoint Gorakhpur MP Yogi Adityanath as the new Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, filmmaker Shirish Kunder, husband of choreographer Farah Khan, has called Yogi Adityanath a ‘goon’.

In the now-deleted tweets, Kunder wrote, “Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he’s allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he’s allowed to rape.”

He did not stop, the next tweet read, “Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI director. And Mallya – RBI Governor.”

The FIR against the director was registered on Friday in Lucknow based on a complaint filed by Amit Kumar Tiwari, Secretary of Thakurdwara Trust of Ayodhya.

Soon after the complain has been registered in Uttar Pradesh’s Hazratganj, the director offered an unconditional apology through his twitter handle.

“I unconditionally apologise. I never meant to hurt anyone’s feelings or sentiment,” Kunder posted on his Twitter page.

Shirish is known for films including ‘Joker’ and’ Tees Maar Khan’.

This is not the first time that the director has voiced out his opinion on Twitter. Earlier in 2016, he reacted on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ as he wrote, “If you block their nose, they will breathe from the mouth. Doesn’t mean they are enjoying it.”
