Vivek Agnihotri, Anurag Kashyap engage in Twitter spat; know why
Mumbai (Maharashtra), December 14: c
Taking to Twitter, Vivek posted a screenshot of Anurag Kashyap's interview that read "Films like Kantara and Pushpa are destroying the industry: Anurag Kashyap."
Reacting to this statement, Vivek wrote, "I totally totally totally disagree with the views of Bollywood's one & only Milord. Do you agree?."
In turn, reacting to Vivek's tweet, the 'Gangs of Wasseypur' director wrote, "Sir aapki galti nahin hai, aap ki filmon ki research bhi aisi hi hoti hai jaise aapki mere conversations pe tweet hai. Aapka aur aapki media ka bhi same haal hai. Koi nahin next time thoda serious research kar lena."
Vivek then asked the 'Manmarziyaan' director to prove that the 4-year research work on 'The Kashmir Files' was a lie and took an indirect jab at Anurag's recently released film 'Dobaaraa'.
'The Tashkent Files' director then said, "Bholenath, aap lage haath sabit kar hi do ki #TheKashmirFiles ka 4 saal ka research sab jhooth tha. Girija Tikoo, BK Ganju, Airforce killing, Nadimarg sab jhooth tha. 700 Panditon ke video sab jhooth the. Hindu kabhi mare hi nahin. Aap prove kar do, DOBAARA aisi galti nahin hogi."
The Twitter war has split social media in two. Some fans have come out in support of Vivek, while others have joined Anurag Kashyap.
Meanwhile, Vivek has begun shooting his next film, 'The Vaccine War,' which is set to be released in theatres on July 4, 2023.
Anurag recently directed the suspense thriller film 'Dobaaraa,' which starred Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati in lead roles but failed to wow audiences at the box office.
