AK vs AK: Anil Kapoor & Anurag Kashyap Engage In War Of Words Ahead of Film Release

Mumbai: Veteran actor Anil Kapoor and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap took Twitter by storm on Sunday as they indulged in a war of words, targeting each other.


The Twitter banter started when Anil congratulated his ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ co-star Shefali Shah and Delhi Crime team for bagging an award 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,” wrote Anil.

Anurag then took a dig at Anil and wrote, “Nice to see some deserving people get international recognition. Waise, aapka Oscar kidhar hain (Where is your Oscar)? No? Achha… nomination?”

Anil replied: “The closest you have come to an Oscar is watching Slumdog Millionaire win Oscars on TV. #TumseNaHoPayega.”

Anurag, who was in no mood to spare Anil, quipped, “Says the k-k-k-ing of hand-me-down films. Weren’t you the second choice for this film also?”

Anurag was referring to ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as Shah Rukh was the first choice for the role Anil played in the film.

Anil wasn’t one to give up easily, and replied: “Hand-me-down or pick-me-up: I don’t care. Work is work. Tumhare jaise kaam dhoondte waqt baal toh nahi nochne padte (At least I don’t have to tear my hair looking for work). #actorlife.”

Anurag replied, “Sir, you don’t talk about hair. Aapko toh apne baal ke dum pe roles milte hain (You get roles only because of your hair). #BaalBaalBaloo #TheJungleLife.”

Anil gave it back to Anurag by tweeting, “Beta, you need serious skills to have a career like mine. Aise hi nahi chal rahi humari gaadi 40 saal se (There is a reason why my engine has been running for the last 40 years). #TheRealAK.”

Anurag then posted, “Sir har 40 saal purani gaadi ko vintage nahi kehte. Kuch ko khatara bhi kehte hain (Sir, not every old car is called vintage. Some are just junk). #retirementcalling.”

Anil replied, “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 come out of the garage). #thenationhasspoken.”

Taking a dig at Anil, Anurag wrote: “Agar gaadi Race 3 ki ho toh ((If it is the Race 3 car, then) it’s better that it stays in the garage only. #havemercy.”

Anil continued: “Bombay velvet Box Office Returns = 43 Crores Race 3 Box Office Returns = 300 Crores.”

Post the war of words with Anurag, Anil mentioned director Vikramaditya Motwane in his tweet and asked him to take care of the trailer of their upcoming film.

Well, the hilarious banter between Anil and Anurag seems to a promotional gimmick for their upcoming film ‘AK vs AK.’

Helmed by Motwane, AK vs AK revolves around a disgraced filmmaker, played by Anurag, who kidnaps the daughter of an actor whose character is played by Anil.
