Mumbai, Dec 28 (PTI) Amid raging protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar said on Saturday that he fears Delhiites these days, because no one knows `what laws they can bring'.

He was speaking at a literature awards function organized by the media house Amar Ujala.

When Amar Ujala group editorial advisor Yashwant Vyas, a friend of his, arrived from Delhi to meet him, "I was scared", said the director of "Aandhi" and "Maachis".

"(Because) These days you don't know what laws Delhi-wallahs can bring," Gulzar said amid peals of laughter.

He also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the beginning of his speech.

"I was about to address you as `Mitron'. But then I stopped," he said, apparently referring to Modi's once favourite way of addressing the crowds.
