Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap took to Twitter to warn fans against his fake social media accounts. The Manmarziyaan director doesn't want his fans to follow the fake social media accounts created on his name.
Posting screenshots of his fake accounts, he wrote that he isn't on Facebook. "My fake profiles are floating on Facebook. This is to say none of these is me. I am not on Facebook," he wrote.
Kashyap also asked his fans to not entertain a person who has been texting women while posing as him. "And there is this person who uses fake US/Canada numbers to text women posing as me, please do not respond to him. He has been reported to cyber cell,'' he wrote. "I only use my Indian number even while travelling. Please report and block this person," he added along with the WhatsApp screenshots of the fake user who has sent messages to several people using the filmmaker's name.
Anurag is currently busy shooting for his film Saand Ki Aankh. The movie starring Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu also has Prakash Jha and Vineet Kumar Singh in major roles. Based on the lives of octogenarian sharpshooters Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar of Johri, Uttar Pradesh, the project was earlier to be titled Womaniya. However, due to legal tussle, Kashyap went ahead with Saand Ki Aankh. For unversed, Kashyap owns the Intellectual Property Rights of the term Womaniya from his 2012 film Gangs of Wasseypur but filmmaker Pritish Nandy registered the title beforehand.
Expressing his anger, Kashyap took to Twitter to write, ''So we have decided to not pay the extortion sum of 1 crore to Pritish Nandy. He can sit on the title and warm it and hope for it to hatch into something worthwhile for his company for once,” adding, “While we go ahead with what (the makers) want the film to be. Saand Ki Aankh. I am sorry that I had faith in Mr. Nandy''.
