The film, Takht, has not even officially entered into its production stage, and Twitteratis have gone into a frenzy over a tweet that its writer, Hussain Haidry' posted recently on social media.

Allegedly displeased by the radical Hindu factions attacking minorities, Hussain tweeted, 'Use These Two Words. Words Are Important.' In his tweet, he wrote 'HINDU TERRORISTS' nine time, one below the other. Here is his tweet:

This tweet did not go down well with right-wingers and they took to Twitter to express their rage against this. That was not all. As soon as someone tweeted that this was Takht's writer, the rage was then directed to Karan Johar and Dharma Productions as well for hiring this writer, hence leading to #BoycottTakhth trending on Twitter.

Here is what netizens tweeted:
