It seems Kamaal R Khan, self-appointed film critic, is out to get Ajay Devgn and his upcoming film Shivaay. Watching the film on Thursday in a Dubai theatre, KRK — as he is popularly known, tweeted the first scene of the film.
Yes, that really happened. KRK appears to be watching the film in the theatre and copied the first scene on some device. He then uploaded the video on his Twitter account. “#Shivaay is starting with trailer of next flop #RockOn2,” he wrote with the clip. He followed it with yet another tweet, “First scene of Shivaay,” and shared the clip.
The clips were widely shared but KRK appeared to have realised his mistake and pulled it off the net. And that happened when Vox Cinemas, the theatre where he was watching the film, was notified. The theatres official handle tweeted, “@kamaalrkhan Hey KRK. We’re sure you’re excited to watch #Shivaay, however using recording devices inside the cinema is strictly not allowed.”
KRK answered on Twitter, “For your information, I haven’t recorded anything at all. I took a pic of Title #Shivaay only. @voxcinemas.”
Sources say that KRK then left the theatre and didn’t watch the entire film. However, it didn’t stop him from sharing more information and plot details of Shivaay.
Not satisfied with just sharing the clips of Shivaay, KRK went on to reveal important details about the film’s plot. He wrote on Twitter, “Let me clear, #Shivaay is story of prostitution problem in Bulgaria, so what Indian audience has to do with it? Why will Indians watch it?”
In yet another tweet, he wrote, “Story started by 9 years old memory and Since last 15 minutes Ajay Devgan Sahab is jumping in the mountains! #Shivaay.” Ajay Devgn has been at pains to keep the plot of his film secret. Even the film’s trailer or songs have not given away much till now.
This face-off made people online discuss if this was the result of KRK and Ajay Devgn’s spat a few weeks back. Ajay had shared a telephonic conversation between his partner and KRK on social media. In the conversation, KRK was heard claiming that he was paid Rs 25 lakh by Karan Johar to promote his film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Karan’s film is clashing with Shivaay at the box office. KRK later retracted his claims in a press conference.
