“It has become a graveyard of bullies. Trolls have made Twitter negative to a point where celebrities have stopped talking much on the platform,” Bhagat told PTI.

According to him, celebrities are increasingly shifting to other social platforms like Instagram to avoid the “negativity”, predicting that Twitter’s end is round the corner.

“I think Twitter is going to suffer and in five years it will close down like Orkut and Myspace. Because, people are moving to platforms like Instagram.”

“Only writers and media persons are there. All actors and other celebrities are gone. They are on Instagram now!” says the writer, who has close to 9 million followers on Twitter.

Bhagat, however, continues to be active on the platform to promote his books and use it for his “publicity”.

“When my book is out, I deliberately go there. I know the medium is like a minefield and it has only become negative. When people are using my name to write negatively about me and get a few laughs and attention, then I will also use it for my publicity,” he says.

Besides announcing the release of the trailer of his latest book One Indian Girl, Bhagat has also been using Twitter to promote the film adaptations of his books, the latest being, Half Girlfriend starring Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor.

His latest “publicity” stunt on the platform was asking his readers to post picture of their copy of One Indian Girl in a beautiful backdrop, the best of which he would retweet.

The author was trolled with pictures of the book on a weighing balance with a pile of old newspapers and in the hands of an Islamic State militant about to execute a hostage by making him read the book among others.

Talking about his tweets on the Uri attack and subsequently on the surgical strikes, the 42-year-old author feels that social media is a space that must be used for free speech.

“Writers are supposed to say what they feel is right. Sometimes it could be pro, sometimes anti-government. Writers who say I am only going to take an anti-government position are stupid. When my government does corruption I will speak against it but when they are retaliating on a terrorist attack I will support them,” he says.

‘Piracy di maa di’: Bollywood is urging you to watch ‘Udta Punjab’ only in theatres

Mumbai: Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, lead actors of Udta Punjab, among other celebrities from Bollywood have urged their fans not to waste two years of their hard work by watching the pirated version of the film and instead watch it only in the theatres.

Shahid, who will be seen playing a rockstar named Tommy Singh in the film, shared:

The controversial film Udta Punjab was leaked online on Wednesday, two days ahead of its scheduled release in theatres. The Abhishek Chaubey directorial- which has been in news for the makers’ run-in with the censor board- was available on torrent websites for illegal download.

However, soon the download links were “removed due to a copyright complaint”.

Visibly upset with the online leaks, Bollywood celebrities including Karan Johar, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Sonakshi Sinha requested people to head to the theatres to watch Udta Punjab, based on drug abuse in the Indian state of Punjab.
