Controversial actor and critic, KRK, calls truce with filmmaker, but then alleges death threat from producer Manish Mundra; also takes a pot shot at socialite-writer Shobhaa De
Kamaal R Khan apologises to Vikram Bhatt; then alleges death threat from producer
04 Jul 2016 14:25 IST
The unthinkable has happened. Kamaal Rashid Khan has said the two magic words, ‘I’m sorry’. Oh, it’s true.
Fearing action in the defamation suit filed against him by filmmaker Vikram Bhatt, the enfant terrible of Indian cinema, more so Twitter, has tendered an unconditional apology to the filmmaker. Khan had made a sensational claim that Bhatt tried to sell actor Meera Chopra to a producer.
Anyway thanks Mr. @TheVikramBhatt for giving me very good advise n I am sorry if I hurt you in the past. Cheers and best of luck for future.— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 2, 2016
If that came as a surprise, you’ll be shocked to know that Khan even chose to apologise to all film artistes who he offended in the past with his review and tweets. The Deshdrohi actor has now vowed to be a good critic.
I m sorry to all other Bollywood ppl also if I have hurt anyone by my statement or review. Today a new very serious type of critic has born.— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 2, 2016
Khan’s apology was welcome by Bhatt, who even called him a talented critic.
@kamaalrkhan you are a talented critic and people will take you seriously now because you are not a troll anymore :) cheers!— Vikram Bhatt (@TheVikramBhatt) July 2, 2016
While the war with Bhatt may be over, Khan was back to usual antics, i.e riling ‘Bollywood’ people. In a sensational claim, the actor alleged receiving death threats from producer Manish Mundra.
This is the official complaint I filed against Manish Mundra pic.twitter.com/qPuKu7GUpS— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 3, 2016
In his complaint, KRK has alleged that Mundra threatened to get him killed by his friends from the underworld. The alleged threat was made through social media. However, we didn’t find any controversial tweet from Mundra. So, if true, then the threat must have been issued via a direct message.
Further backing his charge, Khan tweeted the following
I m saying with responsibility that @ManMundra is an operative of underworld so filmwalas should be careful. I will complaint in CBI today.— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 3, 2016
All efforts to reach Mundra turned futile.
Meanwhile, having promised not to irk actors, Khan chose a new target, taking a dig at socialite-writer Shobha De.
Who is bigger nautanki?— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 3, 2016
The actor put up a poll asking who is the bigger nautanki?
We’re not sure how many people voted, but the results were not flattering for De.
Based on his poll, Khan concluded that De was the Rakhi Sawant of journalism. Well, all we can say is that old habits die hard.
