Ajay Devgn Karan Johar and Kamaal R Khan hotchpotch
A shocking audio
recording shows Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director-producer Karan Johar allegedly paid
Kamaal Rashid Khan Rs 25 lakh to speak in favour of his film and attack Ajay
Devgn’s film Shivaay. Both the films are scheduled to be released on 28 October
Ajay Devgn posted a video on his YouTube channel on 1 September which shows a
telephonic conversation between Shivaay producer Kumar Mangat and film critic
and distributor Kamaal Rashid Khan. In the three minute, 19-second long video,
Kumar Mangat asked Kamaal Rashid Khan why the latter tweeted in favour of Karan
Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and attacked Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay. Kamaal Rashid
Khan said that Karan Johar paid him Rs 25 lakh.
In the video
titled 'Kamaal R Khan (KRK Exposed)', Kamaal said "Karan Johar ka toh
thora sa karna padhta hai na" .
"Uska toh main favour karoonga hi, maine aapko pehle hi bata diya. Jo
aadmi pachees lakh bheje, usko toh favour karna hi padhega."
Ajay Devgn has
released an official statement demanding an investigation into Karan's alleged
involvement in Shivaay's negative publicity.
producer-director of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has neither tweeted anything in
response nor has he made any statement.
Now KRK has
turned 360 degree saying that he said about 25 lakhs simply to avoid Kumar
Mangat as he was continuously pestering him with the same question – why he
said good remarks about Karan Johar’s film. Kamaal said “Bechare Karan Johar ne
na mujhe koi paise diye hain, na main usse mila hu.”
