Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Brahmastra’ is giving a sigh of relief to its makers as the film has broken the lull period of Bollywood with its box-office numbers. The film has managed to clock in Rs. 35.5 crores on Saturday thus taking its two-day total to 66.50 crores.
But clearly, everything comes with a controversy here. This morning ‘Kashmir Files’ director Vivek Agnihotri tweeted, “हमको मालूम है जन्नत की हक़ीक़त लेकिन दिल के ख़ुश रखने को ‘ग़ालिब’ ये ख़याल अच्छा है।” This could have been taken in any other context but the director accompanied this with the hashtag #Bollywood and #gross which has irked the people on Twitter as they think it is a dig at ‘Brahmastra’.

Even earlier, when there were reports of multiplexes losing crores of rupees for ‘Brahmastra’, the director had tweeted about the fakeness in Bollywood.
Problem is everything runs on fakeness in Bollywood. And nobody is answerable. No industry can survive which invests 0% in R&D and wastes 70-80% money on stars.

This time around though, fans have not taken his tweet well and many trolled him for it. While some users said that the film-maker is just being jealous, many said that he is being a sore loser.
Frustrated Sore loser hona bhi kabhi kabhi acha hain Ghalib jo aap Ho rahe Ho !!! Milte hain end of weekend aur end of the week tab tak sulking chalu rakhiye

Eternally grateful to the audiences for their Big love…🙏❤️”
