In a shocking revelation, it has emerged that Kamal Rashid Khan, also known as KRK on social media, allegedly took Rs 25 lakh to tweet against Ajay Devgn’s upcoming flick Shivaay.
Ajay took to Twitter to post the audio recording of the conversation between producer Kumar Mangal Pathak and KRK, who admits taking Rs 25 lakh from Karan Johar to tweet against Shivaay.
Both Shivaay and Karan Johar’s AE Dil Hai Mushkil are scheduled to release this Diwali.
Ajay wrote, “Hear what self proclaimed no. 1 critic and trade analyst Kamaal R Khan has to say.”

The actor didn’t stop here. He soon issued a statement against KRK and demanded thorough investigations against Karan Johar by competent authorites
I have been a part of the Indian film industry for the past 25 years and have been associated with over 100 films. My father was a professional action director and I have an emotional connection with this industry.
It therefore pains me to see that people like Kamaal R Khan are holding the film industry to ransom by spreading negativity about films to extort money from producers.
It is very sad that people from our own industry are supporting such elements and spoiling the ethos of the film industry.
I would strongly demand that this be thoroughly investigated by competent authorities to clarify if Karan Johar was indeed involved in this.”
