Vivek Agnihotri indirectly mocks Anurag Kashyap’s Dobaaraa box office failure, tweets ‘aap sabit kar do…’

Recently, a war of words broke out between filmmakers Vivek Agnihotri and Anurag Kashyap on Twitter after the director of The Kashmir Files shared his disagreement over the recent statement by the director of Gangs of Wasseypur in which the latter said that the trend of pan-Indian films like Kantara and Pushpa led Bollywood to destroy itself.

Vivek took to Twitter and shared a screenshot of the interview with Anurag with the inaccurate headline, “Movies like Kantara and Pushpa are destroying the industry: Anurag Kashyap.” Sharing the post, Vivek wrote, “I completely disagree with the views of Bollywood’s one & only Milord. Do you agree?”

In response to Vivek’s tweet, Manmarziyaan’s 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 get hai. Koi nahin next time thoda seriously research kar lena”.

The director of Tashkent Files then asked Kashyap to prove that the four-year investigative work on The Kashmir Files was a lie and took an indirect jab at the latter’s recently released sci-fi film Dobaaraa, which hit theaters in August and bombed at the box office . .

“Bholenath, monkey low hateh 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. Monkey prove cart do, DOBAARA aisi galti nahin hogi,” Vivek wrote.

The Twitter war has divided social media into two parts. Some fans supported Vivek, while others supported Kashyap. Meanwhile, Vivek has started shooting his next film The Vaccine War, which is all set to hit theaters on the occasion of Independence Day 2023. Anurag, on the other hand, is waiting for the release of his next film Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat next month.
