Time and again, The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri makes headlines for his controversial tweets attacking Bollywood’s alleged gangs and mafias.
Earlier in an interview with DNA, Vivek Agnihotri had accused Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan of damaging the cultural fabric of India. He had said, “After the advent of Amitabh Bachchan as a superstar – not the one from Deewar but one from Shehanshah – the cinema after that never told real stories. Especially Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan’s cinema, that has actually damaged the cultural fabric of India in a very disastrous way. So, I felt it was important to tell real, honest stories.”
