Anurag Kashyap faces brutal trolling with ‘Republic wala Arnab Goswami vs Times Now wala Arnab Goswami’ metaphor


One question that appears to have dominated the debate around this year’s Lok Sabha polls is who Indians should vote for if Narendra Modi is not their choice. Noted filmmaker Anurag Kashyap also joined the debate on Sunday, when he favoured senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari over Modi as part of his solution. This led to his incessant trolling with some saying that choosing Gadkari was akin to appreciating Arnab Goswai of Times Now over Arnab Goswami of Republic TV, where he has turned out to be more vicious and seemingly irrational.

Arnab Goswami

Kashyap had written on Twitter, “I will tell you a far greater option to Modi within the BJP is Gadkari . One thing you can’t take out of indian politics is corruption. They all are the same. But what you definitely can take out is communalism, the politics of hate and fear.”

His tweet evoked plenty of reactions with most social media users appearing to disagree with the famous Bollywood filmmaker. Journalist Priya Ramani wrote, “Most naive.’ Journalist Mohan Sinha wrote, “Ha ha! Gadkari? A man who wears his RSS upbringing and his khaki shorts with pride!! Get a life Kashyap.” One Twitter user Paash wrote, “That’s literally the most idiotic work of Kashyap, even more than Bombay Velvet. Gadkari is the closest man to RSS. Now Kashyap will write, not all people in RSS are bad few of them are good too. This is how Liberals normalize Fascism.”

User Sadipan Mitra tweeted, “”Give me times now wala Arnab Goswami instead of Republic wala Arnab Goswami.”

This year’s Lok Sabha polls are taking place in seven phases with the second phase scheduled for 18 April. The counting will take place on 23 May. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking a second term for himself in office, while Rahul Gandhi has emerged as a serious challenger after his party defeated the BJP in three key states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chattisgarh.


  1. The Communist party Spokes person rightly gave it back to Go-swami saying that when Go-swami sitting right in front one should not look around for a impotent. First everone thought it is too much but at the hindsight, one will convence themselves, how true the Commrade was!

  2. This guy find Halim walked out if Arnnab debate when Raman asked whether India should play with Pakistan or some question which I have watched live. He couldn’t answer simple yes or no and he comments about arnab so … tell me if fuad is impotent or a spineless commi or both. At least arnab. Stands for principle..good or bad.

  3. Hahaha, Janta ka reporter and republic both are at the extreme opposite end of the political spectrum, such biases, probably it’s the funding sources to you both which responsible for such biased hollow articles.

  4. It’s so sad to c that there r so many hypocrites…. I don’t know abt mr.gadkarì or mr.kashyap much… but just laughing at his being nominated for the mere reason of his affiliation with RSS is ridiculously hypocritical… the nation who can accept people from Muslim league n other minority religious institutions in politics this gentleman for.RSS link…. as far as I have heard about RSS they inculcate discipline in people n not spread hatred for other religions

  5. Why u guys write the same thing for anchors like Sandeep, the bunch of Ndtv anchors , journalist of wire , Barkha Dutt etc etc who openly and blatantly promote Cong agenda . What would u call them .If Aranab is called Impotent and what are all these others . It has become a fashion now a days , abuse Modi , and the country and u will be called liberal and intellectual . Sad for our country , to be a Hindu is crime , to say Vande Matram , Bharat Mata ki jai, makes u either a Bhatt or a saffron terrorist . Shame on us as Indians , who support anti India trend in India . Cong manifesto is one glaring example , made to appease and encourage who abuse our nation .

  6. Some Indians after being under Foreign rule still prefer to be under whites, forgetting Mohandas’ motto ” whites get out”. Now everyone wishes to have fair coloured or white skinned Heroines,children and Partners,

  7. Anurag Kashyap who? The Tarantino wannabe? And what makes him a party in intellectual dialogue? His moviemaking? Zant ka reporter is chutiyapanti unlimited.
