Speaking at a literature award function organized by media house Amar Ujala, lyricist Gulzar said, 'I was about to address you as 'Mitron'. But then I stopped.'
This was purportedly a reference to PM Narendra Modi's way of addressing crowds. Gulzar added he fears Delhiites these days, as no one knows "what laws they can bring', amid protests against CAA.
Amid raging protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar made these sensational comments. When Amar Ujala group editorial advisor Yashwant Vyas, a friend of his, arrived from Delhi to meet him, 'I was scared', said the director of 'Aandhi' and 'Maachis'. '(Because) These days you don't know what laws Delhi-wallahs can bring," Gulzar said amid peals of laughter.
He also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the beginning of his speech.
