A troll recently claimed that filmmaker Sudhir Mishra was beaten by Police for not adhering to the rules of the lockdown. The filmmaker not only slammed the trolls but also cleared the air surrounding the fake video.

In a viral video, a man wearing a yellow shirt and beige shorts can be seen having an argument with the police. Later on, the police officers hit the man for not following their instructions. Perhaps as the man in the viral video was also sporting white long hairs he was mistaken as Sudhir by the netizens.

You can check out the viral video below:

Trolls had a field day sharing the video stating it was Sudhir who was beaten by the police. Quashing all the rumours, Mishra took to his twitter handle and wrote, “I am quite amused that people think I would take a beating without reacting. Every tall white haired guy is not me . What shocks me is that the glee of the troll brigade . How sick ! Whoever that coward who takes a beating like that , it ain’t me , sickos ! Get a life !(sic)”

The filmmaker single-handedly shut down several trolls by giving them befitting reply. “I cannot be wrong in these matters so I would react . By the way till date I’ve never had a problem with the police. Never! So Mr Pai , I am sorry to disappoint you but that fat long john wearing fair guy with full hair at the back ain’t me,” he wrote in his other tweet.

Well, now that the director himself has cleared the air, we hope the trolls stop their shenanigans.

In the wake of the outbreak of Coronavirus, PM Narendra Modi has instructed the entire nation to observe 21 days lockdown. So far in India, more than 1000 Covid-19 positive cases have been registered and around 32 deaths have been reported.
