Earlier, Bhushan had stoked a controversy as he tweeted that, “Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendary Eve teaser. Would (UP CM Yogi) Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes Anti-Krishna squads?"These remarks had led to a furore following which Bhushan has tried to clarify his stand several times.
