Anubhav Sinha, the director of recently released movie Mulk, who was in the news for endorsing piracy to promote his film in Pakistan, got irked when a Twitter user mentioned that his movie has flopped. Sinha, then resorted to mocking the name of the Twitter user, Vikas.
Sinha’s attempt at political sarcasm did not go down well. Twitter users recalled his previous mega-budget flop movie Ra.One

Sinha’s ‘anubhav’ (experience) in allegedly converting black money into white was also mentioned. As Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had shared that he spent his weekend watching Mulk, Twiter users celebrated the old relationship.
Good Morning everyone. Watch this video (sting operation) of @anubhavsinha, directior of MULK. He’s expert in converting black money into White. ?
It was also tweeted by @ashutosh83B before Anubhav Sinha donated to AAP. ?

As Sinha had mocked someone’s name, one Twitter user returned the favour.
The Twitter user whom Sinha had mocked replied back too.

Before the release of his movie, Mulk promoters had used some questionable statistical data to claim Muslims are wrongly perceived in India. During a press event, Sinha even claimed that Muslims become terrorists because one minister had ‘facilitated rioting Hindus’.
