Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit gives major update on Arnab Goswami’s whereabouts; days after Twitterati inquired about Republic TV founder


Filmmaker Ashok Pandit has taken to social media to share a major update on Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami’s whereabouts saying that that he had spoken to his ‘close colleagues.’ Pandit’s revelation came amidst intense speculation over Arnab’s well-being with supporters and detractors raising concerns over his prolonged absence from TV.

Pandit took to Twitter to write, “#ArnabGoswami @Republic is absolutely fine as per his close colleague. It’s just that he wanted to take a short break which he never took in lst 8 yrs of hs untiring effort to raise hs voice against d antinationals. So nothing to worry. D lion wl roar once again very soon.”

No sooner did Pandit claim that Arnab was only taking a short break, many social media users reminded the filmmaker that the so-called short break had become an absence from TV for 42 days.

One user commented, “Sir its 42 days..its not short break..when will the word ‘soon’ ends.” Another wrote, “Happy n relieved to hear that Arnab Sir is sound n safe!! Wishing Arnab sir good health n all the best!! Hope to see him at the earliest!!” “Good to know! Would’ve been nice if he had updated to his fans. We are worried, “wrote another user.

The last time Arnab was seen presenting his prime-time debate show was way back in April. Though he had appeared on his channel to lead the coverage of the counting of votes on 2 May, he had disappeared quickly as the BJP failed to stop the juggernaut of Mamata Banerjee in Bengal.
