Filmmaker Anurag kashyap and actor Anil Kapoor engaged during a savage war of words on Twitter, as they took digs at each other’s film careers. However, it seems to be a gimmick for his or her upcoming Netflix film, AK vs AK, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
It all started with Anil congratulating his Dil Dhadakne Do co-star Shefali Shah and therefore the team of Delhi Crime for his or her best drama series win at the 48th International Emmy Awards. “I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again because they absolutely deserve it!” Congratulations to the #DelhiCrime team! Nice to finally see more of our people get international recognition. @ShefaliShah_ #WelcomeToHollywood, ”he wrote.
Anurag took the chance to require a jibe at Anil and wrote, “Nice to ascertain some deserving people get international recognition. Waise, aapka Oscar kidhar hain (Where is your Oscar)? No? Achha … nomination? ” Anil’s savage reply was, “The closest you’ve got come to an Oscar is watching Slumdog Millionaire win Oscars on TV. #TumseNaHoPayega. “
Says the kkk-ing of hand-me-down films. Weren’t you the second choice for this film also ?, ”Anurag wrote to Anil, pertaining to the very fact that the a part of the sport show host in Slumdog Millionaire was originally offered to Shah Rukh Khan, who turned it down.
“Hand-me-down or pick-me-up: i do not care.” Work is figure . Tumhare jaise kaam dhoondte waqt baal toh nahi nochne padte (At least i do not need to tear my hair trying to find work). #actorlife, “Anil wrote, to which Anurag replied,” Sir, you do not mention hair. Aapko toh apne baal ke dum pe roles milte hain (You get roles only due to your hair). #BaalBaalBaloo #TheJungleLife. “
Anil told Anurag that one requires ‘serious skills’ to possess a four-decade-long career in films like his. “Beta, you would like serious skills to possess a career like mine. Aise hi nahi chal rahi humari gaadi 40 saal se (there may be a reason why my engine has been running for the last 40 years). #TheRealAK. “
Sharing posters of Anil’s recent films that were panned by critics, Anurag wrote, “Sir har 40 saal purani gaadi ko vintage nahi kehte. Kuch ko khatara bhi kehte hain (Sir, not every old car is named vintage. Some are just junk). #retirementcalling. “
“Abe meri gaadi 40 saal chali toh chali, teri toh abhi tak garage se hi nahi nikli hai (At least my car has been running for 40 years, yours is yet to return out of the garage). #thenationhasspoken, ”wrote Anil. Anurag wrote, “Agar gaadi Race 3 ki ho toh ((If it’s the Race 3 car, then) it’s better that it stays within the garage only. #Havemercy.”
In AK vs AK, Anurag and Anil are pitted against one another. Anurag plays a disgraced filmmaker who kidnaps the daughter of an actor, played by Anil, and films the look for her in real-time.
