Richa Chadha, Ashoke Pandit Get into Twitter War Over Citizenship Amendment Act
A war of words ensued between Ashoke Pandit and Richa Chadha on Twitter after the filmmaker named her in a tweet regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019.

Filmmaker and social activist Ashoke Pandit took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to reply to a tweet by director Vivek Agnihotri. The latter had posted a tweet about the clash between student protestors and the police over the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019. While replying to him, Pandit named Anurag Kashyap, Mahesh Bhatt, Anubhav Sinha, Rajkummar Rao, Manoj Bajpayee, Swara Bhasker, Huma Qureshi and Richa Chadha.

A war of words ensued between Richa Chadha and Ashoke Pandit, after the actress shot back, saying, "When u ran into me at a party and I promised ki aapki bakwas ko pyaar se counter karungi,u laughed! Now u levelling allegations?And then u invited me to your daughters wedding? I mean r u ok? Why do you behave like this online! Someone paying u? (sic)"

Not just Richa, Pandit also replied to the tweets of Javed Akhtar, Huma Qureshi and Parineeti Chopra, with the hashtag #ISupportDelhiPolice.

"A democratically elected Govt that creates laws against its own people is following the Nazi Germany model clearly...." Huma wrote.

To which Pandit replied, "Did U read the bill ? I am sure you have not. Some #UrbanNaxals must have briefed & mislead U. Please read carefully and then comment. It's a bill to protect the country from its enemies."

Parineeti tweeted, "If this is what's gonna happen everytime a citizen expresses their view, forget #CAB, we should pass a bill and not call our country a democracy anymore! Beating up innocent human beings for speaking their mind? BARBARIC."

The filmmaker took on Vicky Kaushal as well on Twitter. Read their exchange here:
