The filmmaker took to Twitter to clarify and said, "Everybody baying for Rhea`s blood, asking questions like how did you know she didn`t do this or that to him? How do you (know) what was he going through? Are (we) forgetting that the whole industry has actually known and seen and interacted with SSR over last 9-10 years. Yes we know better."The `Gangs of Wasseypur` director added, "And that is also the reason the whole industry has been quiet so far out of respect for him. And now it is that very knowledge of SSR that has again brought everyone out here together to stand in solidarity for Rhea because it`s gone too far. Republic doesn`t inform our opinion."
