After the BJP won the general election on Thursday, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter and also revealed a big concern.

Referring to himself as a 'dissenter', he asked the Prime Minister how to deal with the followers who are celebrating the landslide victory by threatening his daughter.

He wrote: “Dear@narendramodi sir. Congratulations on your victory and thank you for the message of inclusiveness. Sir please also tell us how do we deal with these followers of yours who celebrate your victory by threatening my daughter with messages like this for me being your dissenter.” 

Along with a tweet, he shared the image of a comment of a person on his daughter's picture. It used crass language for her.

The comment read: "Apne baap ko bol ki apna ******** band kare, warna aisa ******* tujhe kisi ne aaj tak **** nahin hoga."

Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit reacted to his tweet and wrote: "This twitter handle seems to be photoshopped because it doesn’t exist. Seems to be created by an #UrbanNaxal to give an opportunity to somebody to abuse #Modi when the entire World is happy."

Pandit continued: "If it’s true dn I am of d opinion, that ds act shud not be just condemned bt tackled. Similar thing hd hppnd with my dgthr, I md a police complaint regarding d miscreant and didn't helplessly crib to d PM bcoz for me, my daughter's dignity and safety meant more dn my politics (sic).

An irate Kashyap responded: "Search for it on Instagram not on twitter you moron.. this is my daughter getting a threat a**h*le." 

Pandit lashed out: "Mind your language Mr. Kashyap. Read my very next tweet on the thread. Let’s file a complaint with the police and get him arrested than asking the PM what to do. I am sure you know that law enforcing agencies exist in this country of ours."

Pandit said Kashyap was "sending him drunken texts" and that he was "in shock after the election results". 

He shared a screenshot of a conversation with Kashyap and wrote: "Clearly U r under shock after today’s election results. Drunk texting me abuses, tagging the wrong person on Twitter... please pass the joint quicker. Also tagging @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice so they can track chowkidar_ramsanghi_’ and take action."
