Kamaal R Khan has already been declared persona non grata by several A-listers in Hindi cinema, and his latest act might earn him the wrath of Ajay Devgn personally. The self-proclaimed film critic has now gone and leaked out the first scene from Devgn's Diwali release, Shivaay.
If dissing Shivaay was not enough, Khan went on to call the soon-to-release Farhan Akhtar-Shraddha Kapoor Rock On 2 a flop. He wrote '#Shivaay is starting with trailer of next flop #RockOn2.'
Although the tweet was later deleted, it caught the attention of the news media. The critic has already given out spoilers for the film in his tweets.
Story started by 9 years old memory and Since last 15 minutes Ajay Devgan Sahab is jumping in the mountains! #Shivaay— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) October 27, 2016
30 minutes gone and Ajay Devgan sir is still climbing mountains only so I really don't know if he has made #Shivaay to show mountains only.— KRK (@kamaalrkhan) October 27, 2016
Not wanting to stop at that, Khan even went on to say that Shivaay is a 'great bad film', and Devgn's previous releases, Himmatwala and Action Jackson were 'Sholay and MughalEAzam' compared to it.
Obviously, the mischief is going to land Khan in serious legal trouble.
Reliance Entertainment COO, Shibashish Sarkar has revealed that "What has happened is that, you know in the middle east the films open one day before, KRK has started to copy the film from inside the cinema and has started putting those videos. We are taking strict legal action and filing a complaint with the cyber crime in Mumbai. We have also written to all the social media platforms like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook too because when any kind of piracy happens, we take stringent action including criminal action."
Needless to say, the makers have already taken screenshots as evidence of KRK's piracy, and are planning to take him to court. Sarkar said, "In any country where the laws are stringent, the people go behind bars. So definitely a film made with a year of effort and money of investors, we should take strict action against any kind of piracy. It happens regularly these days and hence we will take very strict action."
This is not the first time Khan has traded blows with Devgn. A few months ago, Devgn had leaked an audio clip of Khan confessing to accepting money to praise Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The two were soon trading blows on Twitter. It led to the beginning of a nasty cold war between Johar and Devgn.
With 24 hours to go for the India release, this is a particularly nasty move by Khan. Suffice to say, it might prove to be the last straw for this 'critic'.
