  • Aparna Sen refused to answer a single question posed to her, and in frustration made a hand gesture. 
  • Around 49 celebrities across all professions in the likes of Bollywood, theatres, historians, and artists wrote to PM Modi claiming intolerance in the country under the BJP regime

Filmmaker Aparna Sen fumed and smoldered as Republic's Editor-in-Chief questioned her and the Lobby who alleged the rise of hate crimes across the country.  

After artists, filmmakers, and social activists wrote to the Prime Minister alleging hate crimes across the country out of concern, Republic's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami questioned the absence of the hate-mongering Lobby during other incidences of hate-crimes. 

In response, Sen refused to answer a single question posed to her, and in frustration made a hand gesture. 

She said, "Hi Arnab, you have started your whatabouteries, I am not going to answer any of your whatabouteries. Please address the issue. You are not going to succeed in shouting, I'm done. I refuse to answer"
