Hansal Mehta quits Twit­ter

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - FRONT PAGE - IANS

Film­maker Hansal Mehta has deleted his Twit­ter ac­count af­ter fac­ing back­lash over his tweets against Queen (2014) di­rec­tor Vikas Bahl, who has been ac­cused of sex­ual ha­rass­ment by a woman em­ployee at nowdis­solved Phan­tom Films, which had Bahl as one of the part­ners, other than Anurag Kashyap, Vikra­ma­ditya Mot­wane and Madhu Man­tena. An ex­cerpt from Hansal’s tweet was, “Will any­body do any­thing about this bloody creep? No­body took any ac­tion against Bahl — on the con­trary a ma­jor star has acted in his new film.” Hansal seemed to be tak­ing a dig at ac­tor Hrithik Roshan, who is work­ing with Bahl on Su­per 30. This didn’t go well with Hrithik’s fans, who trolled him. Af­ter fail­ing to make them un­der­stand his point, Hansal de­cided to delete his ac­count.
