‘Gulzar saab’s love for India is immense’
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has slammed the vicious attacks on Gulzar on the social media, saying the noted lyricist’s love for the country and people is immense.
The Dadasaheb Phalke Awardee, 81, has been facing the ire following his support towards authors returning their Sahitya Akademi awards in protest of the growing religious intolerance in the country.
“Gulzar Saab’s love for this country, its people and his conscience is far beyond the collective vitriol of the lynch mob that attacks him,” Anurag posted on Twitter. The Gangs of Wasseypur director and Gulzar have worked together in No Smoking and Satya.
