Thappad director Anubhav Sinha declares: I hereby resign from Bollywood

Post the unfortunate demise of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Bollywood has been in a difficult position as there has been much debate on insiders versus outsiders and the role of nepotism that doesn’t let outsiders try their best in the industry. Now Mumbai Police had been investigating the case and trying to find out the real cause of Sushant’s death and amidst this many actors and few directors have got into arguments on the contentious issue of nepotism. Kangana Ranaut, Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker and Anurag Kashyap have all been tweeting about the subject.

Now the discussions have led to many outburts on social media and in a latest burst of obvious emotional rage, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has tweeted to declare he is resigning from Bollywood. Sinha, who has garnered a lot of fame and adulation directing “Mulk”, “Article 15” and “Thappad” in recent years, is known for his straightforward posts on social media. Never one to shy from even getting abusive occasionally, the filmmaker has not minced words to declare that he his calling it quits. “ENOUGH!!! I hereby resign from Bollywood. Whatever the fu*k that means,” he wrote on his verified Twitter handle

It seems that other filmmakers too seem to agree to his decision as Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra tweeted a reply: “What’s Bollywood?I came 2be part of Cinema inspired by Satyajit Ray, Raj Kapoor, Guru Dutt, Ritwick Ghatak, Bimal Roy, Mrinal Sen, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, K Asif, Vijay Anand, Javed Akhtar, Tapan Sinha, Gulzar, Shekhar Kapur, Ketan Mehta, Bharatan n Aravindan etc. That’s where I’ll always be.” Filmmaker Hansal Mehta too responded with “”Chhor diya (left it)… It never existed in the first place.” Most fans urged Sinha to continue filmmaking, even if it meant from outside Bollywood. It is understandable that the Bollywood industry has been really going through a rollercoaster and everyone seems to be really bothered by it.
