Twitter War Erupts Between Vivek Agnihotri, Anurag Kashyap
MUMBAI, (ANI) – A war of words erupted between filmmakers Vivek Agnihotri and Anurag Agnihotri on Twitter on December 14 after the ‘The Kashmir Files’ director shared his disagreement over Anurag’s statement.
Agnihotri shared a screenshot of Kashyap’s interview which reads, “Films like Kantara and Pushpa are destroying the industry: Anurag Kashyap.” Sharing the post Vivek wrote, “I totally totally totally disagree with the views of Bollywood’s one & only Milord. Do you agree?”
Replying to Agnihotri’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.”
Agnihotri 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 Kashyap’s recently released film ‘Dobaaraa’.
‘The Tashkent Files’ director responded, “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 divided social media. Some fans showed support of Vivek, while others stood by Kashyap.
