“Next Time, Do Serious Research”: Anurag Kashyap To Vivek Agnihotri
Vivek Agnihotri and Anurag Kashyap got into a Twitter argument on Wednesday when the director of “The Kashmir Files” expressed his dissatisfaction with Mr. Kashyap’s statement regarding current films.
A screenshot from Anurag Kashyap’s interview that said, “Films like Kantara and Pushpa are ruining the industry: Anurag Kashyap,” was posted on Twitter by Mr. Agnihotri.
Sharing the post, Mr Agnihotri wrote, “I totally totally totally disagree with the views of Bollywood’s one & only Milord. Do you agree?”
Replying to Mr 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. (Sir, it’s not your fault. The research of your films is same like your tweets on my conversations. Your condition and that of your media is the same. Next time do some serious research).”Mr. Agnihotri, in an apparent dig at Anurag Kashyap’s newly released film “Dobaaraa,” challenged the “Manmarziyaan” director to show that the four years of study on “The Kashmir Files” were a fabrication.
‘”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 (prove that the four-year research for ‘The Kashmir Files’ was all lies. Girija Tikoo, BK Ganju, Airforce killing, Nadimarg – all were false. The videos of 700 Pandts were all false. No Hindus died. Prove this so that I won’t make this mistaken again,” said Mr Agnihotri.
Social media has split into two due to the Twitter war. Some supporters of Mr. Agnihotri arrived, while others are standing with Mr. Kashyap.
The Vaccine War, Mr. Agnihotri’s upcoming movie, has begun production and is scheduled to open in theatres on the eve of the following Independence Day.
The suspense thriller “Dobaaraa,” which Mr. Kashyap recently directed and starring Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati in the major roles, did not perform well at the box office.
