In spite of having a failed Bollywood career, Kamaal R. Khan continues to make news, and rarely for the right reason. Here’s a look at five times the actor found himself at the receiving end of a verbal fight
Kamaal apologises to Vikram Bhatt: Khan, who has been in the news recently after filmmaker Vikram Bhatt slapped a defamation case against him for his derogatory remarks towards women in showbiz, has apologised for his doing.
In reaction to Bhatt's statements on the controversy, Khan tweeted on Saturday night: "Today I watched Vikram Bhatt and he said -- 'KRK has got big social media power so he should decide whether he wants to be... Recognised as a troll only or respected critic', and 100 per cent agree with his statement. So thanks to Vikram Bhatt for showing me right way."
"Anyway thanks Vikram Bhatt for giving me very good advise and I am sorry if I hurt you in the past. Cheers and best of luck for future. I m sorry to all other Bollywood people also if I have hurt anyone by my statement or review. Today a new very serious type of critic has born."
KRK tries to troll Abhishek Bachchan, gets trolled instead: In May this year, the Deshdrohi actor tried to take on Abhishek Bachchan, but his attempt backfired. It all started when KRK tweeted about AB Junior's last 'solo' hit being 'Guru' way back in 2007. He also asked Twitterati to correct him if he was wrong. Abhishek Bachchan did just that and gave KRK a fitting reply! Abhishek said that 'Guru' wasn't a 'solo' hit as the film also had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Mithun Chakraborty, Vidya Balan and R Madhavan headlining the star cast.
Sonu gives it back: In June this year, Kamaal Khan criticised filmmakers Imtiaz Ali and Farah Khan, saying that the two can't even make a hit film in their dreams. Labelling Farah Khan's 2014 film 'Happy New Year' as bad, Kamaal stated that all the stars, who featured in the film are 'sitting at home'. The film featured Shah Rukh, Sonu Sood, Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah and Jackie Shroff. "Two years ago a 'wahiyat' film 'Happy New Year' released and all the actors of that film thought, they have become stars, so now all are sitting at home," he wrote.
Sonu replied to Kamaal, who is often engaged in controversies, that he should keep his wishes intact. "Don't worry mere (my) Bhai (brother). With your wishes sitting in Shanghai and doing what people can only dream. Keep wishes intact Bhai," Sonu replied on Sunday.
When Sidharth asked KRK to shut up: In February this year, actor Sidharth Malhotra reacted strongly when Kamaal R Khan made a derogatory comment about his 'Kapoor & Sons' co-star Alia Bhatt. He has asked the 'Deshdrohi' actor to mind his own business.
Sidharth and Alia had taken to Twitter to post the cover photograph of a magazine, in which they are seen in swim wear. And to this Kamaal, who uses Twitter to express his personal opinion unabashedly, posted: “Alia looks so bacchi in panty but still some people keep forcing her to wear it.”
Sidharth, who is rumoured to be dating Alia, took offence to this, and tweeted: “Sir! We also try very hard to tell you to shut up but you keep tweeting! @kamaalrkhan”.
Sonakshi wanted to hang Kamaal upside down: In November 2014, Kamaal R Khan faced Sonakshi Sinha's ire when he posted inappropriate tweets about Bollywood actresses, including one on Sonakshi, asking who had the biggest butt in Bollywood. Sonakshi gave a kickass reply to him.
“Please RT this if u think @kamaalrkhan is a woman disrespecting waste of space and deserves to be hung upside down and given 4 tight slaps,” she posted. It didn’t take long for Kamaal Khan to apologise.
