Busting the fake news, Shabana Azmi wrote: ". "मोदी अगर प्रधानमंत्री बन गए तो देश छोड़ दूँगी"शबाना आज़मी
This is PURE FABRICATION. Ive never said this and i have no intentions of leaving the country. This is where I was born and this is where Ill die.I hve nothing but contempt for The Fake News Brigade."

She further called the 'fake news' brigade 'pretty pathetic' and said: "The Fake News Brigade is pretty pathetic. Their overdrive exposes their fear at losing out. Issues pe baat kar nahi sakte tto chalo jhoot itni baar bolo ke usey log sach maan lein is their motto.But they r falling flat on their faces bcoz there r enuf brave voices exposing dem. My father @AzmiKaifi taught me to never treat my opponents like my enemies. Maturity lies in discrediting the argument with logic not discrediting the opponent by falsehood and http://innuendo.How  I wish sane debate wud prevail rather than d muck thats thrown on a daily basis.
