An FIR has been registered in Uttar Pradesh's Hazratganj against Bollywood filmmaker Shirish Kunder for slamming chief minister Yogi Adityanath through his tweets, reports ANI.

In his tweets, Kunder has criticized the centre's decision of elevating Yogi Adityanth to the chief ministerial post by referring to him as 'goon' who is expected to 'stop rioting once he's allowed to rule'.  

In the now-deleted tweets, Kunder had written "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."

He also wrote "Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI director. And Mallya - RBI Governor."

This is not the first time that the director has voiced out his opinion on Twitter.

Earlier in 2016, he reacted on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Mann Ki Baat' as he wrote, "If you block their nose, they will breathe from the mouth. Doesn't mean they are enjoying it".
