Anurag Kashyap and Ram Gopal Verma became friends-turned-foes after the former took a dig at the latter on Karan Johar's 'Koffee With Karan' way back in 2014.
Later Verma slammed Anurag Kashyap's 'Bombay Velvet' on Twitter resulting into a ugly showdown between the two on the microblogging site. A year later, now both of them are all geared for a battle at the box office this May with their respective films releasing on the same date i.e 27th May 2016, RGV's 'Veerappan' and Anurag's 'Raman Raghav 2.0'.
Interestingly both the films deal with a similar theme- serial killers! While 'Veerappan' is a biopic on the dread dacoit Veerappan, 'Raman Raghav 2.0' is is touted to be a psycho-thriller inspired by the life of Raman Raghav, a psychopathic serial killer in the mid-1960's who operated from Mumbai.
In fact RGV even tweeted about the similarities between both the films-
