The trailer of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's "Jazbaa" was released on Tuesday and received mixed response from critics.

Although most of the critics gave a thumbs up to the trailer, there were some who panned it. And that evidendly didn't go down well with director Sanjay Gupta.

The director of "Jazbaa" posted multiple tweets expressing his excitement and thanked all those people who liked the trailer. At the same time, he also posted some not-so-pleasant comments about critics who slammed the much awaited video. 

A little later, the director posted another tweet asserting that he is ready to accept criticism but not ready to be ridiculed. 

He is also said to have posted some more harsh words for the critics but later deleted the tweet. 

"Jazbaa" will present Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as a mother and an advocate, while Irrfan Khan plays the role of a tough cop. "Jazbaa" is the official remake of South Korean thriller drama "Seven Days" and is slated to hit screens on 9 October. The film also features Shabana Azmi and Jackie Shroff in prominent roles.
