Having to deal with the hate and negativity that comes with just makes it harder. So, in the light of such a situation, director Shashank Khaitan announced that he has decided to deactivate his Twitter.

Finally deleted my twitter account… I am surely inconsequential, in terms of followers and reach for the platform… but I believe every voice is important… hope such a powerful platform can evolve and reform to spread love and happiness … Praying for a peaceful world always … 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
When it comes to such negativity and hate, Shashank recently dealt with it when he had to clear rumours about an alleged casting scam in relation to his film, Mr. Lele, starring Varun Dhawan. He took to his Instagram to say that they are not casting for the film and requested people to not get tricked by this hoax.
Well, all this can sure take a toll on our mental state, and it is best to do what is best for our sanity. We, too, hope that the internet evolves into a much more happy and positive space for us to interact in.
