Ajay Devgn posted a video on Thursday (September 1) which is a telephonic conversation of Shivaay producer Kumar Mangat and film critic and distributor Kamaal Rashid Khan. In the three minute, 19-second long video, Kumar Mangat is heard asking KRK why the latter tweeted in favour of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and attacked Ajay Devgn-starrer Shivaay. It is at this mitigation that KRK shocking reveals that Karan Johar paid him Rs 25 lakh.
“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.”said Ajay.
