Anil Kapoor’s film AK vs AK stirs controversy, IAF asks Netflix to withdraw scenes for inappropriate language, uniform

Ahead of the release, Bollywood movie AK vs AK starring Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap has landed in controversy as Indian Air Force on Wednesday objected to a scene where Kapoor’s character wears the uniform of an Air Force officer. The officials have demanded the withdrawal of the objectionable scene.

Kapoor recently released a one-minute long teaser of his soon-to-be released Netflix movie on Twitter. In the video clip, Kapoor and Kashyap are seen engaged in a war of words as the veteran actor uses foul language and abuses the filmmaker.

Reacting to it, the Indian Air force in the tweet said that the IAF uniform in this video is inaccurately donned and the language used is inappropriate.The scene does not conform to the behavioural norms of those in the Armed Forces of India, and asked the makers to withdraw the related scene. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and Netflix India were also tagged in the tweet.

Earlier in August, the IAF had objected to the Netflix movie Gunjan Saxena : The Kargil Girl for its undue negative portrayal of the Air Force officers in the movie. The movie featured Jahnvi Kapoor in the lead role. The IAF had written to the Central Board of Film Certification, which was also sent to Netflix and film’s production house Dharma Productions.

Meanwhile, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, AK vs AK narrates the story of a brash filmmaker played by Kashyap, who abducts the daughter of a popular Bollywood actor played by Kapoor. The film captures the actor’s desperate search for his daughter in real-time to showcase it as his next blockbuster.

Basically Kapoor and Kashyap play exaggerated versions of themselves in this film, according to Netflix. The film pits them against each other, and focuses on settling the age-old debate of who runs cinema, artist or director. Recently, the two also indulged in a much publicised Twitter war on Sunday to promote their movie. The film will be released on December 24 on Netflix.
