Impressed by secular credentials of Anurag Kashyap, Mamata asks Ranveer to step down and let Kashyap play Khilji's role

02, Feb 2017 By Akshay Dhar

Mumbai. In the aftermath of the attack on director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his upcoming movie Padmavati by a fringe group, Anurag Kashyap tweeted about Hindu terrorism not being a myth anymore and said, “Hindu terrorists have stepped out of Twitter into the real world now”. Mamata Banerjee got so impressed by Kashyap’s tweet that she briefed all the members of Trinamool Congress (TMC) to ask the filmmakers to replace Ranveer Singh with  Anurag Kashyap for the role of Allaudin Khilji.

Khimji to be
Anurag Kashyap will soon shave his mustache off to have an authentic Khimji look

A spokesperson of TMC told Faking news, “If the filmmakers don’t agree on the role replacement, TMC under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee would organize a nationwide protest”.

Imam Barkati (the person who issued a fatwa against PM Modi) too would be part of the nationwide protest and might sit for a hunger strike along with Mamata Didi.  Also, as per latest reports, Mamata is also in talks with her senior party members to make Anurag Kashyap, a brand ambassador of secularism in the state of West Bengal. Additionally, Karan Johar, Mahesh Bhatt and Farhan Akhtar might be considered for the honor as well. After TMC took this stand officially, it made certain “secular” parties very anxious as they might loose out on their “secular” vote bank. Hence rest of the secular parties are now in talks with certain others prominent faces of Bollywood who would follow the footsteps of Anurag Kashyap and tweet on this issue or similar issues. Then these political parties would take ownership of their statements and make them the brand ambassador of secularism of their respective organisations or of the respective states in which they are in power. Experts say that this move might have a direct impact on the voters during the upcoming legislative assembly elections in the five states taking place next month.
