Anurag Kashyap praises Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani



Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting.

Anurag Kashyap, who attended the special screening of Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani last night in Mumbai, is all praise for the film and its director Ayan Mukerji.

'I love "wake up Sid" so much and I never thought I would say this but I am saying this, I love "Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani" so much more.. I expected why the F&@£ Ayan has done this, I thought I am going to sleep but wow.. He really twisted every cliche and kicked a,' the 40-year-old filmmaker tweeted.

'I do not watch films for who is in it. but who has made it.. its always the director.. From DB(Shanghai) to Zoya(ZNMD), Imtiaz , Ayan, Vishal B are people i have been consistent about since the Days of PFC,' he continued.

'Only difference between then and now is, I do not talk about films i don't like anymore. kind of pointless,' he added.

He didn't stop there. He added: 'i love good acting like anyone but i make my choice on the basis of who is directing. And the tweet was a response to all the mainstream films (Shanghai,ZNMD, Rockstar and YJHD) that i have praised on twitter.'

Incidentally, Anurag's wife Kalki Koechlin has a pivotal role in the film.

After Priyanka Chopra, starlets Poonam Pandey and Sherlyn Chopra have slammed Mallika Sherawat for calling India a regressive country for women.

'It was only due to the 'Regressive' India that Malika became a movie star. Malika should not bite the hand that has been feeding her. I love #India. Malika went to #Cannes and got carried away with the media attention. She's not used to it na,' Pandey tweeted.

Sherlyn tweeted: 'Had India been "regressive" & "depressing", people such as myself would've been outta work..Why endorse a prejudicial opinion of INDIA???!!! 'Regressive'- Becoming less advanced.. 'Depressing'- Miserable dejection.. Are these the kind of adjectives that define today's INDIA???!!! #MyIndia ain't perfect. Neither is any other nation across d globe. #MyIndia is progressin' with each passin' day!!!'
