New Delhi: Ever since Bhojpuri superstar Dinesh Lal Yadav aka Nirahua's much talked about film 'Border' was announced, it has been in the news. A few days back, a tiff between a journalist and Nirahua over 'Border' created a stir on social media after the superstar expressed his anger. 

What followed was a huge support pouring in from other actors backing Nirahua for his stand against the critic. Nirahua even took to his Instagram and shared a video alleging that there are some people who have threatened to stall the release of his film 'Border'. 

Now, the journalist in question wrote a note on his Facebook account stating that this unwanted row and ruckus related to the film 'Border' may actually lead to casteism in the Bhojpuri film industry. He revealed how a certain caste is supporting the superstar and abusing the journalist on social media platforms. 

He even shared that in fact, the Rajput community is backing the journalist for his move.

Meanwhile, Nirahua has received massive support from Bhojpuri film industry where popular stars like Rani Chatterjee, Sultan Raju Singh Mahi backed the actor. Nirahua has reportedly lodged a complaint about mental harassment against the reporter with the Oshiwara Police station.

The journalist, however, seems least perturbed by that action that might be taken against him.

The film written and directed by Santosh Mishra also stars Pravesh Lal Yadav, Shubhi Sharma, Vikrant Singh, Sushil Singh, Awdhesh Mishra, Sanjay Pandey, Aditya Ojha, Gaurav Jha, Vijay Lal Yadav, Vishal Singh, Avinash Dwivedi, Ansuman Rajput, Manoj Tiger, Kajal Yadav, Ananya Mishra, Richa Dixit and Kiran Yadav.
