Responding to Vivek’s tweet, the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ director wrote, “Sir it’s not your fault, your films research is like your tweets on my conversations. Yours and your media’s too.” How are you?” No one, next time do some serious research..’
Sir, it is not your fault, the research of your films is also like your tweet on my conversation. Same is the condition of you and your media. No one, next time do some serious research. https://t.co/eEHprUeH9u– Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) December 14, 2022
Vivek asked the director of ‘Manmarziyaan’ to prove that his 4-year research work on ‘The Kashmir Files’ was a lie and took a veiled dig at Anurag’s recently released film ‘Dobaara’. The director of `The Tashkent Files` replied, “Bholenath, aap lage haath sabit kar hi do ki #TheKashmirFiles 4 years of research was all lies. Girija Tiku, BK Ganju, Airforce killing, Nadimarg were all lies. 700 pundits The video is all lies. Hindus have never been killed. Prove it, such a mistake will not happen again.”
Bholenath, you put your hand to prove that #TheKashmirFiles 4 years of research was all lies. Girija Tikku, BK Ganju, Airforce Killing, Nadimarg were all lies. The videos of 700 pundits were all lies. Hindus never killed. Prove it, such a mistake will not happen again. https://t.co/jc5g3iL4VI

The war of Twitter has divided the social media into two parts. Some fans came out in support of Vivek and some are standing with Anurag Kashyap.
Meanwhile, Vivek has now started shooting for his next film ‘The Vaccine War’ which is all set to hit the theaters on Independence Day 2023. On the other hand, Anurag has recently directed the suspense thriller film ‘Dobara’. Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati played lead roles but failed to impress the audience at the box office.
