“Will give details about our march to the Rashtrapati Bhavan on 7th by artists, writers, painters etc. by tomorrow. #ToleranceDebate,” Anupam tweeted on Wednesday.
After a host of filmmakers, including names like Dibakar Banerjee and Anand Patwardhan, returned various government awards and honours they have received to express solidarity with FTII students, a few members of the Hindi film fraternity termed it as a “publicity gimmick” and an “insult”.
Anupam had earlier shared on Twitter: “This #AwardWapsiGang has not insulted the government, but the jury, the chairman of the jury and the audience who watched their films.”
