New Delhi: After filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri tweeted that Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra had beaten his movie The Kashmir Files at the box office, actress Kangana Ranaut a day later took to her Instagram story to share his tweet and take a dig at filmmaker Karan Johar. Brahmastra has been backed by Karan. Kangana in her Instagram stories wrote, “The audacity to belittle The Kashmir Files, a film made on Hindu genocide (and) also trying to ride on its success. The Kashmir Files was made in ₹10 crore…”
Kangana who previously called Karan ‘movie mafia’ many times in the past, wrote in her note, “Now, according to mafia minions, Karan Johar film has beaten it (The Kashmir Files) brutally… Karan Johar ji aap kya cheeze ho yaar (what are you, Karan Johar).” Kangana added a laughing emoji to her note. Vivek had written in his original tweet on Monday, which Kangana reacted to, “Hahahaha. I don’t know how did they beat #TheKashmirFiles…with sticks, rods, hockey… or AK47 or stones… Or with paid PR and influencers? Let Bollywood films compete with each other. Leave us alone. I am not in that dumb race. Thanks.”
Again the actress shared another tweet about the Brahmastra box office and post Covid-19 pandemic ‘verdict model’ on her Instagram stories. Along with laughing emojis Kangana wrote, “Post pandemic verdict model, especially invented for Karan Johar films… BTW (by the way) Thugs of Hindustan (2018) earned around ₹280 crore worldwide gross and its budget was also around ₹280 crore… Lekin (but) they didn’t spend on PR machinery. Nahi toh (otherwise) with the new KJo (Karan Johar) models, no film will ever flop.” She added the hashtag ‘just saying.’
As per the film trade sources, Brahmastra earned Rs 17 crore on Sunday over its second weekend. The movie stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and crossed the overall net domestic collection of Rs 200 crore and Rs 350 crore worldwide. Previously, Kangana questioned the box office collection of Ayan Mukerji’s movie and stated that the budget of Rs 650 crore cannot be called a hit after earning Rs 246 crore in a few days.
