Filmmakers Karan Johar and Ram Gopal Varma are known for their love-hate relationship. The two have got into a war of words quite often.
And this time it was filmmaker Karan Johar's turn to take a dig at Ram Gopal Varma saying that he feels important that RGV chose him to market his film.
"I was thrilled, I was thrilled to bits to read each and every tweet, I waited for the next one actually. He is an exceptionally prolific filmmaker... I mean really that he gave me the importance for being the big tool to market his films, I think nothing could make me prouder," the 40-year-old said at the launch of Filmfare magazine edition.
The edition features Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra on the cover page, all three of whom debut with Karan's "Student of The Year" that hits theatres Oct 19.
"I feel like the most important person on the earth, thank you. Secondly, I realised he is still alive, you know I really got worried for a moment because I thought we have lost him, so, I don't want such a great filmmaker to ever, ever leave us. So, I am so happy," Karan added.
When asked to comment on Ram Gopal Varma's film 'Bhoot Returns' which was released on Friday, Karan said: "Oh, he is returning from where? I have already said he was alive. It's his debut, is it? Bhoot Returns. I am not so sure."
Ram Gopal Varma, who recently watched the trailer of 'Student Of The Year', has taken to Twitter to mock Karan.
"Student of the year truly really and honestly looks like its the best film of Karan johar and the bestest film of Indian cinema ever. I love the sheer never before seen imagery and the extraordinary originality and even more extraordiny directorial brilliance," he tweeted.
"I don't know about student of the year but I wud want to be a student for life of Karan johars cinema. A Karan johar film institute is anyday a far better option than Subhash ghai gibhash ghai nd pune gune film institutes. I rate Karan johar far far more higher than Mehboob khan v.shantaram Rajkapor guru Dutt and Bimal Roy," he added.
That's not it.
He took a dig at Karan's favourite actor Shah Rukh Khan too.
'Kudos to Karan johar for making Varun dhawa make me forget sharuk khan. Kuch Kuch hogaya mujhe Student of the year trailer dekhte dekhte. I strongly feel student of the year will break the records of 3 idiots,' he added.
Well, we strongly believe this is not the end of the war of words. Watch this space for more.
