Actor receives 'death threat' after letter to Modi

Bengali actor Kaushik Sen has said that he received a death threat after writing an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, with 48 others, earlier this week.

In the letter, Sen and other film personalities (like Mani Ratnam, Anurag Kashyap, Aparna Sen, Shyam Benegal, etc) said that Modi should intervene to put an end to the lynchings that have been happening "in the name of Ram".  The "weaponisation of Jai Sri Ram" chant was mentioned in the letter.  

"Yesterday, some anonymous caller called me up and said that I will be killed if I don't stop speaking up against the intolerance," Kaushik Sen said.
