A while back we brought you Kangana Ranaut too reacted to the reports of 800 crore loss to the theatre.

Recently, Vivek Agnihotri took an indirect jibe at Karan Johar and the ‘Koffee Club’ asking their social media agencies and PR firms to focus on their films. He had Tweeted, “I think the naughty boys of Koffee club should ask their SM agencies and PR firms to focus on their film rather than fighting the battle with me. I am not the kind whom you can break with free hampers. Best. Always.”
