Karan Johar (KJO) has used Kamal Rashid Khan (KRK) to promote against Ajay Devgan’s film ‘Shivaay’. Therefore KJO paid 25 lakhs to KRK, complained Ajay Devgan. He posted on twitter the audio conversation between KRK and Kumar Mangat, producer of Shivaay. In that audio KRK confesses that he has to speak negative about Ajay’s film as he has allegedly received 25 lakhs from KJO. KRK, however, refused to accept the charges.
Ajay’s Shivaay and Karan’s Ae Dil Hai Muskil will release on the same day on diwali. Ajay Devgn is not pleased with KRK bad mouthing his film Shivaay after initially speaking in its favor. An angered Ajay has claimed an investigation to expose the truth and to find out if Karan has indeed paid the money, 25 lakhs as KRK is saying.
Ajay said, “It pains me to see that people like Kamaal R Khan are holding the film industry to ransom by spreading negativity about films to extort money from producers. It is very sad that people from our own industry are supporting such elements and spoiling the ethos of the film industry. I would strongly demand that this be thoroughly investigated by competent authorities to clarify if Karan Johar was indeed involved in this.”
“Hear what self proclaimed no. 1 critic and trade analyst Kamaal R Khan has to say.”
“I personally boycott #Shivaay today. I will not say good or bad about this film anymore because I don’t want to become part of cats fight.”
A response from Karan Johar is still awaited.
