Director Deva Katta has taken potshots at the media by calling them as “mad dogs”. The filmmaker made these statement for certain sections of media for promoting warmongering and reckless attitude amidst escalating tensions between India and Pakistan. “Wish to see all the mad dogs who are praying/crying for war sitting around dining tables and barking from inside TV sets, exactly in this gentleman’s (Abhinandan) place,” the ‘Prasthanam’ director posted.
Deva Katta added, “That channel and its head are an epidemic! Mad, loud, sick and senseless!!”. Similarly, actress Taapsee Pannu also called out media for asserting that Pakistan buckled after India’s unprecedented pressure.
