Now meet Vivek Agnihotri. The director of Indian films like Chocolate and Hate Story.

He’s famous for stirring up controversies on Twitter. In his recent tweet, he posted his opinion about the dying trend of ‘Saree’ at Red Carpet fashion events.

Sure, the dude is entitled to his opinion and I understand what he’s trying to say, but aren’t we living in 2018? shouldn’t we all just chill and stop telling women what they should wear?

While some people agreed with his opinion.

A lot of people thought it was inappropriate for him to tell what women should wear or impose Indian culture on them when he has never worn Dhoti or Kurta at Film award functions. As you might expect, the tweet has gone viral and he’s facing a huge backlash on Twitter.
