It seems strange to hear that the Air Force is angry with Netflix, what does Netflix have to do with air forces. The fact is that on Netflix, the famous film director Anurag Kashyap and Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor’s new film ‘AK vs AK‘ (Anil Kapoor vs. Anurag Kashyap) will be released on December 24.
Trailers of this film have been released, one of the trailers was also released by Anil Kapoor from his Twitter account. Apparently, many users liked it and said that they are eagerly awaiting the release of this film, but the Twitter account of the Indian Air Force objected to the content of this trailer.
In a trailer released by Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor for the film ‘AK vs AK‘, he appears in an Indian Air Force uniform and is talking to Anurag Kashyap.
In another scene in the trailer, he is seen dancing in an Indian Air Force uniform.
Reacting to this, the trailer was tagged from the Twitter account of the Indian Air Force, saying, “Indian Air Force uniforms have been misrepresented in this video, and the language used in this video is Also not suitable. Such an attitude is not in line with the attitude of Indian military officers, so the relevant scene needs to be deleted.
Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, in response to criticism from Indian Air Force and social media users, released an explanatory statement from his Twitter account in which he said, “The trailer of my new upcoming film Disliked and objected that I had used non-parliamentary language while wearing an Indian Air Force uniform. I apologize in this regard. However, I would like to clarify that in this film, my role is that of an actor who is playing the role of an Indian Air Force officer and he knows that his daughter has been abducted. The language reflects the character’s anguish and anger as a father.
“My intention and that of the filmmakers was never to insult the Indian Air Force. I have always respected the selfless service of all security personnel,” he added. I sincerely apologize for hurting anyone’s feelings unknowingly.
While Netflix India also tweeted in support of the Indian Air Force’s objection, “Our intention can never be to insult the Indian Armed Forces.”AK vs AK is a film starring Anil Kapoor and The roles of his fellow actors are also actors. Nowhere in the film is the Indian Air Force or our armed forces shown. We just have a lot of respect for our brave young men.
Reaction on social media
Following a tweet from the Indian Air Force’s Twitter account, many social media users supported the position and criticized the growing use of inappropriate language in Bollywood.
A user named Iram Habib said, “I am happy to see that the Indian Air Force has taken a stand on this. Not everything can be made fun, unfortunately for some people it will be just a piece of cloth Yes, but this uniform decorated with the national flag has some meaning for us, honor, respect and feelings are attached to it.
Another user responded, “It should end. The entertainment industry has always ridiculed our security agencies. Please take strong action against them so that they do not do it again.”
While social media users were supporting the Indian Air Force’s objection to the trailer and taking strong action against the film’s crew, some users were linking it to freedom of expression.
In this regard, a user said, “When the Prime Minister can ask for votes in the name of the army or can vote by putting pictures of them, the actor can no longer dance in military uniform?” Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn are also using the name of Army to promote their films.
While another user said that the Indian Air Force should take up the matter at the official level instead of tweeting, it is only giving unnecessary publicity to their film which is a big deal (for their happiness). Now we will see how much this thing grows.
While social media users were criticizing the language used in the trailer, a few users liked the trailer immensely.
Writer, director and actor Satish Koshkak of the Indian film industry tweeted, “What a weird style, crazy and a new and fresh way to release a trailer that’s great.” India’s first mock drama film is full of untouched humor and energy. Congratulations Mr. Kapoor.
While another user also said something like, ‘What a wonderful trailer, I have watched it twice to understand and digest it, I am looking forward to the release of this film.
