Shirish had criticised the decision to appoint Adityanath as the new CM of UP via a tweet which he later deleted. The tweet reportedly said:
Shirish Kunder (Twitter)Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI director, and Mallya - RBI Governor
He is also alleged to have tweeted, "Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he's allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he's allowed to rape."
Shirish is known to express his candid, cheeky and often witty anti-right wing opinions on Twitter.
The filmmaker and his wife Farah Khan were unavailable for a reaction to this recent development.
