Twitter is back to trolling and boycotting, yet another celebrity. This time, it's director Anurag Basu, whose latest film Ludo is currently streaming on Netflix.
Anurag drew flak from the audience for allegedly making fun of Hindi Gods and culture in Ludo. In a scene from the film, Rajkummar Rao is playing the role of Surpanakha in a local Ram-Leela. And his character soon gets into a fight and abuses, while still dressed up as Surpanakha.
In another scene from the film, actors, dressed up as Gods, can be seen pushing a car which, as per Twitterati, is an attack on Hinduism. And soon, #Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu trended on Twitter:

Film Ludo One of the scenes in the film depicts three characters dancing and jumping on the streets in the guise of Deity Brahma, Shri Vishnu and Deity Shankar, at which the film’s hero Aditya Roy Kapoor looks in a demeaning way.#Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu@basuanurag@MIB_India pic.twitter.com/s64L8QWxd9— Deepak Nadgire (@NadgireDeepak) November 27, 2020
Ludo directed by #Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu chooses to depict our gods in such a demeaning manner.— Shivadhage (@Shivadhage3) November 27, 2020
Would Anurag Basu ever show such scenes of other religions and dream of being untouched ? pic.twitter.com/ghY46YKFQ0
The two and a half hour film 'Ludo' has the same objective. Straightforward ridicule of Hinduism. Symbolically, the entire film attempts to hurt Hindu culture.#Hinduphobic_AnuragBasu@Np_Hjs pic.twitter.com/ylWmFMrQJa— Swati Keshri (@SwatiKe27931372) November 27, 2020

In Anurag Basu's #Ludo film, Lord Shankar and Goddess Mahakali are shown pushing a car !
Only agenda of this movie to insult #Hinduism.

Though social media users asked for the I&B ministry to intervene, there has been no official response from either Anurag Basu or the ministry.
