The 43-year-old director had said, “Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he is allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he’s allowed to rape.”
In the following tweet, he said, “Going by the logic of making a goon a CM so he behaves, Dawood [Ibrahim] can be Central Bureau of Investigation’s director. And [Vijay] Mallya the Reserve Bank of India governor.”
Both the tweets have since been deleted.
He has now publicly apologised for the tweets saying he “never meant to hurt anyones feelings”.
