Taking to Twitter on Monday, Vivek Agnihotri had tweeted, “Rahul Gandhi was always unqualified. It’s just that now it’s been made official.” Calling Vivek a ‘joker’ instead, a Twitter user wrote, “When director of hate story talks about qualifications….. Joker.”
Vivek responded to the Twitter user in Rahul's style. He wrote, “'That director is in your mind. I killed him. He doesn’t exist. Not in my mind at all. He is gone. Gone. The person you’re looking at is not him; you are seeing him, but I’m not him. If you do not understand, read the Hindu scriptures. He is in your head, not mine' Who said this?"
It was in January when Rahul Gandhi had said, “Rahul Gandhi is in your brain, I have killed him. The person whom you are seeing is not Rahul Gandhi. You don’t understand? Read a little about Hindu dharma. Read about Shiva, you’ll understand what I’m saying, don’t get so surprised. Rahul Gandhi is in your brain, not in mine. Rahul Gandhi is in BJP’s thinking, not in my mind. Why are you looking so surprised? I don’t have any interest in my image, you can have whatever image you like.”
Actor Gulshan Devaiah also reacted to Vivek's tweet. He wrote, “I’m so sorry at the poor quality of criticism that you receive my good sir. Hang in there doing your thing, you’ll find a good, genuine match up, that’ll be at your high level.”
Vivek had recently slammed Congress for being run by a ‘family’ and had said that they should star in Karan Johar's films. He was reacting to a video of Priyanka Gandhi where she was sharing the contributions of her family members in Indian politcis.
