‘Done with Twitter, just a breeding ground for hate and negativity,’ says Director Shashank Khaitan as he deactivates his account on the micro-blogging site


Director Shashank Khaitan, who has directed films like Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Dhadak, deactivated his Twitter account on Monday, calling it a ‘breeding ground for hate and negativity’. 

Khaitan said that he was done with the micro-blogging platform which could have been used to make the world a better place but has become a place to spew venom and hate. As he quit the social media platform, he tweeted, “Done with twitter... just a breeding ground for hate and negativity... very sad that a platform so powerful, could not be used to create a better world... praying for peace and love always... deactivating my account now ... @Twitterindia.”

After quitting Twitter, he posted the same news on Instagram too and wrote, “Finally deleted my twitter account... I am surely inconsequential, in terms of followers and reach for the platform... but I believe every voice is important... hope such a powerful platform can evolve and reform to spread love and happiness ... Praying for a peaceful world always.” 

However, it’s not clear what triggered the move. A few days ago Shashank had cautioned people about fake casting calls for his film Mr. Lele that starred Varun Dhawan in the lead and called it a scam.
