'Bombay Velvet' is Anurag Kashyap's 'Aag': RGV

Anurag Kashyap is a brave man. Not only did he stand by his vision ‘Bombay Velvet’ when it was being rejected by the audiences at the Box Office and skewered at the hands of the critics, he also has taken upon himself to counter the Twitter-rants by his friend-turned-foe Ram Gopal Varma.

For the uninitiated, the foot-in-the-mouth specialist of the moment – RGV – joined the many people who were taking to Twitter to slam Anurag Kashyap’s recently released ‘Bombay Velvet’, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. He called the movie Kashyap’s ‘AAG’ and in a back handed comment, called Kashyap arrogant.

The bottom line is everyone makes an AAG and till he makes his own AAG he will bitch about others AAGS until he too burns in his own AAG

My velvety tears for the maker of a disaster like AAG are for the tragedy,that by being the butt of it,he himself doesn’t get to fuck it— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 15, 2015

Because I am 1st maker of AAG I think I have experience and right to lay them on a velvety cushion nd console the future AAGIANS

There’s a very thin line between confidence and arrogance and only Velvets and AAGS can show the difference— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 15, 2015

A Slumdog making a film with millions of dollars will not necessarily make a Slumdog Millionaire

Karan Johar is the only Velvet and the rest is coarse— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 15, 2015

A down and out Anurag Kashyap then took to Facebook and wrote a very long message that said that his experiment might not have worked with many people but he believed in it. He further urged the readers to close the book and move on.

‘Bombay Velvet’ might not have touched you, but Anurag Kashyap’s words would surely do. Read the full story here.

But make no mistake. RGV is RGV and as mentioned by Kashyap in Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee With Karan’, RGV was, not is his friend.

RGV tweeted to slam Anurag Kashyap again, this time in a witty way.

A director standing by his film rejected by the audience is like him telling a girl “I love myself and I don’t care if you don’t love me”

— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 17, 2015

But the ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ director is not an easy nut to crack. He declared his love for the ‘Satya’ helmer.

@RGVzoomin sir i love you too much.. now put that Vodka aside and sleep.. lots of kisses— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) May 17, 2015

But little did he know, that RGV has stopped drinking.

@anuragkashyap72 well sir for ur info I stopped drinking …I am not into kissing men but love you too

— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 18, 2015

So what? They can still celebrate with “filter coffee” (no pun intended).

@RGVzoomin then lets have filter coffee together soon to celebrate the AAG..— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) May 18, 2015

But RGV seems to have fallen in love with ‘Bombay Velvet’s Kaizaad Khambatta – Karan Johar, for he suggested them to have Coffee “with Karan” and bury the hatchet.

@anuragkashyap72 Sir u very well know that I luv u more than u luv me and I suggest that we both have coffee with Karan

— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 18, 2015

@anuragkashyap72 And in the course of having Coffee with Karan maybe we can learn from him how not to make Aag’s and make Kuch Kuch’s— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) May 18, 2015

For all we know, RGV, KJo and Kashyap do share a history. While KJo and Kashyap are foe-turned-friends, RGV and Kashyap are friends-turned-foe. Kashyap wrote the 1998 movie ‘Satya’ for RGV and the dialogues for ‘Shool’ after which they had a massive fallout.

KJo and RGV have always had a very fiery relationship where RGV called KJo’s ‘Student Of The Year’ – the “Disaster of the Year”. Wonder what KJo has to say about this.

And while we love this tongue-in-cheek and slapstick banter between the two filmmakers, we also hope that we get the geniuses of ‘Satya’s and ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’s back onscreen. RGV and Anurag, are thee listening?
