In the video, Agnihotri has launched scathing attack on left liberals for its hypocritical attitude on various national issues. On social media platforms, people are expressing solidarity with the director.
Earlier, on Friday, the students of the Kolkata's Jadavpur University demonstrated against film director and the film. Filmaker Agnihotri faced black flags at the campus gates, sloganeering and placards bearing message that asked him to leave.
Later, the filmmaker claimed he was "manhandled and gheraoed" by some students and even the glass pane of his car was left shattered in the commotion.
The agitating students said they have nothing against the screening of the film, but were protesting against the "divisive content" in it, which also stars Anupam Kher.
"We all know Kher's views in the whole debate on whatever happened in JNU. He is acting in this film which has divisive content. We are protesting against that," Sounak Mukherjee, a first year MA student of English Department, said.
Some girl students were allegedly molested during the melee that ensued after the incident, police said.
