Matroo was a delight, sir! It was Brecht at Sonepur Mela, Andy Warhol in Sadar Bazaar, with an underlined, almost smiling, presence of your politics. I saw it again as recently as a few months back, and rediscovered quite a few gems.— Vaibhav Vishal (@ofnosurnamefame) February 5, 2021
Ahead of its time or not, thank you! :)
And I was mentioning this only 2 days back about this Vishalji !! About the genius monologue that @AzmiShabana ji gives and how the movie is an underrated movie and deserves much more love than it actually got !! Kudos 👍👏— PSV (@VinodPS19) February 5, 2021

Meanwhile, the farmers’ protest gained a lot of attention since a few months. Recently, international pop singer Rihanna also tweeted about the same. She wrote on her Twitter handle, "why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest"
Her tweet grabbed attention like no other and made the Hollywood star to trend at number 1 on Twitter in India. Meanwhile, this didn’t go down well with Kangana Ranaut and she said, "No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA... Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies."
