Director clarifies that he has only ended his relationship with Bollywood, not with cinema
Ever since filmmaker Anubhav Sinha announced his resignation from Bollywood on Tuesday, cinema lovers have started speculating if this means he will stop making films altogether.
Sinha took to Twitter on Wednesday to clarify that he has only ended his relationship with Bollywood and not with cinema.
"Of course I will only make movies. In fact more. But I am dramatically changing my own logistics that will be as s******s as possible. Will tell you more in times to come," Sinha clarified on his verified Twitter account on Wednesday.
Earlier on Tuesday, Sinha had tweeted to declare he was resigning from Bollywood, given the current state of affairs of the industry.
"ENOUGH!!! I hereby resign from Bollywood. Whatever the f**k that means," Sinha had announced.
The filmmaker has also changed his Twitter profile from Anubhav Sinha to Anubhav Sinha (Not Bollywood).
Sinha's Tuesday tweet set off a huge reaction on social media, with filmmakers Sudhir Mishra and Hansal Mehta taking sides with him.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday Mishra reacted to a user's tweet who said that Sinha's resignation will not be accepted by the audience. "Nobody has resigned from Cinema or long form storytelling," wrote Mishra on his verified Twitter account.
