Self-proclaimed film critic and actor Kamaal Rashid Khan, aka KRK, has threatened to commit suicide as he is 'depressed' after Twitter suspended his account for his remarks against Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan. A press release shared by KRK Box Office's Twitter handle read that if his Twitter account was not restored in the next 15 days, he would commit suicide. The statement read, "I request @TwitterIndia and staff Ms. Mahima Kaul, Viral Jani and Mr. Taranjeet Singhto restore my account within 15 days. 1st they did charge me millions of rupees and then suddenly suspended my account. So am depressed because they have cheated me. If they won't restore my account, I will commit suicide and all these people will be responsible for my death." The tweet, however, has now been deleted.

KRK's Box Office account later tweeted to inform that Versova Area police had reached KRK's bungalow after receiving a call about his suicide threat. "According to our sources-Versova Area police has just reached to KRK Bungalow because they got call that KRK is going to commit suicide today," the tweet read.

Twitterati, however, trolled KRK. Here are some Twitter reactions:

Kamaal R Khan had earlier said that he will take legal action against Twitter for suspending his account. KRK, whose account was earlier suspended on Diwali last year for giving a bad review to actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn's 'Shivaay', says he will not return on the social media site again.

"I have spent four years and lots of money to build my six million followers account on Twitter. Therefore, I will definitely go to court against Twitter to ask them to reimburse me the money and time I have spent on my account so far," read a statement by Kamaal on the official Twitter handle of KRK Box Office, where he shares news and reviews about films. According to reports, Kamaal revealed the climax of Aamir's new film 'Secret Superstar' while reviewing it.

Kamaal said that Twitter suspended his account because he gave negative reviews to the Advait Chandan directorial. "I want to inform all the media that I won't try to open any new account on Twitter if they have suspended by account just because Aamir Khan doesn't want me on Twitter. It means Aamir Khan is the real owner of Twitter," Kamaal said.

"I haven't abused anyone nor threatened anyone so Twitter doesn't have the right to suspend my account with six million followers. They have suspended my account without a single warning, meaning Twitter wants only Aamir Khan to use it. I am not angry with Aamir Khan at all because it's his right to ask Twitter to suspend my account if I was saying that his film will be a flop. But Twitter suspended my account just because Aamir Khan wants and that's a big surprise for me," he added.
