Dabangg Salman Khan has found a new competitor in the brave Anurag Kashyap, who continues to defend himself in the controversy over Abhinav Kashyap’s refusal to direct Salman’s Dabangg 2. Since then, Arbaaz Khan has himself decided to direct the sequel to last year’s biggest hit, while even Abhinav has moved on to better things.
But it seems like the ugly public spat between Salman and Anurag isn’t finished. So when Anurag publicly apologized for his rash comments against the Khan brothers, Salman and Arbaaz, Salman responded with a comment calling Anurag a darpok (coward). What Salman did not factor in was that Anurag Kashyap would not keep quiet against such an allegation. Now, Anurag has publicly flayed Salman’s comments by saying that Anurag had only apologized to the Khans because he was sensitive to his brother, Abhinav’s situation. Anurag also added, ‘Salman might not be aware of it, but I am not afraid of anybody or anything.’ Continuing in the same vein, Anurag has reportedly said that, ‘It takes a lot of guts to apologise to someone publicly.’ Salman, of course, thought otherwise.
This latest controversy erupted when Abhinav refused to direct Dabangg 2, preferring instead to work on a new script with Viacom 18. Since then, various allegations have been thrown all over the place. But Abhinav thinks all that happened was unnecessary. “I and Arbaaz had discussed things between ourselves. There was no need for others to get involved,” he told Koimoi.com last week.
