Mumbai: Director Prakash Jha has backed Ajay Devgan on the ongoing controversy surrounding Kamaal Rashid Khan bashing “Shivaay” and praising Karan Johar’s directorial venture “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”.
Ajay’s “Shivaay” and Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” are clashing at the box-office next month.
Jha, 64, who has worked with Ajay in films like “Apaharan,” “Gangaajal,” “Rajneeti,” and “Satyagraha,” has come out in his support on Twitter asking him to remain patient.
“I’m not surprised @ajaydevgn… They are scared a lot… Manipulation their only means of survival… But Shiva is with you.”
The filmmaker also retweeted the 47-year-old “Singham” star’s post which had the link to the recorded conversation between KRK and “Shivaay” producer Kumar Mangat along with a message, “Hear what self proclaimed no. 1 critic and trade analyst Kamaal R Khan has to say.”
Ajay posted an audio of the former “Bigg Boss” contestant admitting he was paid to tweet in favour of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, but KRK has shot back saying it was, in fact, the star, who offered him money to bash filmmaker Karan Johar’s movie.
