Anurag Kashyap’s latest film ‘Bombay Velvet’ not only received mixed reactions from the critics but turned out to be a big failure at the box office. The film, which has been blasted for its script, content and overall approach, has had the lowest opening at the box office.
Given that the budget of ‘Bombay Velvet’ has been estimated to be somewhere between 100-120 crores, the movie is being termed as one of the biggest disaster of Bollywood.
While Anurag has often involved himself in various controversies and has had a tiff with many people including Ram Gopal Varma, Milap Zaveri, Kamaal R. Khan among others, it was heartening to see Kashyap reply politely to RGV’s posts on twitter.
Few days back, RGV posted his wise words on twitter. He wrote, “The bottom line is everyone makes an AAG and till he makes his own AAG he will bitch about others AAGS until he too burns in his own AAG.”
Though Anurag didn’t reply to those messages, he took to the social networking site to express his viewpoints over the film’s performance and assured all that he will bounce back soon. After reading his post, RGV again got on to twitter and posted, “A director standing by his film rejected by the audience is like him telling a girl "I love myself and I don't care if you don't love me."
This time, to his surprise, Anurag replied and said, “@RGVzoomin sir i love you too much.. now put that Vodka aside and sleep.. lots of kisses.” RGV may not have replied to this message immediately, but today first thing in the morning, the director got on to twitter and wrote, “@anuragkashyap72 well sir for ur info I stopped drinking ...I am not into kissing men but love you too.”
Both Anurag and RGV then exchanged a series of tweets which read:
Anurag Kashyap: @RGVzoomin then lets have filter coffee together soon to celebrate the AAG..
Ram Gopal Varma: @anuragkashyap72 Sir u very well know that I luv u more than u luv me and I suggest that we both have coffee with Karan.. @anuragkashyap72 And in the course of having Coffee with Karan maybe we can learn from him how not to make Aag's and make Kuch Kuch's
Well, now this is indeed interesting!
