Yogesh Soman, who is the Director of Academy of Theatre Arts in Mumbai University, had posted a video in December slamming Gandhi over his remark on Savarkar.
As per reports, the NSUI workers also gheraoed Mumbai University VC Dr Subhash Pednekar on December 23 demanding action against the professor.
