Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who is getting trolled on social media for gaining support and sympathy for Muslims through his upcoming film ‘Mulk’, has hit out at the trollers by saying that the movie is not funded by Dawood Ibrahim, the Congress or the RSS, and neither the film is about Hindus or Muslims.

Reacting to all the negative messages that he has been receiving against the movie, which is a courtroom drama about restoring the honour of a Muslim family accused of betrayal.

Anubhav Sinha took to Twitter and wrote, "I wish our country had made better and more educational institutions. I wish they had created better job opportunities. I wish you were actually serving and loving your country. Do you even remember your dreams now? Or are they lost under heaps and heaps of hate posts that you write every day, every hour for four years now? You don’t have a name or a face. Your family can’t tell anyone what you do. Your parents aren’t proud of you, your sister isn’t, your brother isn’t and the worst, YOU DON’T HAVE A FUTURE. “

Adding further, “'Mulk'... No, it is not funded by Dawood Ibrahim. You can ask him. Not even Congress. You can ask Rahul (Gandhi). Not even the RSS. You can check with Mohan Bhagwatji. It is funded by Mr. Deepak Mukut and his father Kamal Mukut, a veteran in this business. No... Every post of mine is not about 'Mulk'. We are spending crore of rupees promoting the film, we spent, even more, making it. These tweets are just a very minor part of the campaign and like I said, we do have a life. And a voice, so outside of our work we do talk."

He also averred that reading posts from trolls make him feel bad, “Sometimes you do end up hurting us but mostly not because we know it is not your voice. In fact, it is not even you. It is just your fingers and your eyes being grossly underutilised by your masters. It is your master's instructions and we give a damn about them."

Finally, he mentioned, "'Mulk' is a very nice film. It is not doing what you think it is doing. It is not about your masters. Hindus or Muslims. It is about you and it is about me and mostly it is about us."

The film ‘Mulk’ features Taapsee Pannu, Neena Gupta, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra, Ashutosh Rana, Prachee Shah Paandya, Vartika Singh, Ashrut Jain and Indraneil Sengupta.
