Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet opened on Friday only to be skewered by critics and ignored at the box office and his colleague Ram Gopal Varma is gloating over the film's dismal performance on Twitter.
Soon after Kashyap's new ambitious film Bombay Velvet opened to dismaying reviews and collections, Ramu tweeted, "Because I am 1st maker of AAG I think I have experience and right to lay them on a velvety cushion and console the future AAGIANS....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...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."
Not endig at that, Ram Gopal Varma further tweeted, "There's a very thin line between confidence and arrogance and only Velvets and AAGS can show the difference. 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."
In another life, Anurag Kashyap and RGV were collaborators. Anurag wrote 1998's Satya, the film that made RGV's name. He also wrote Kaun? and the dialogues for Shool before falling out massively with RGV and later dismissing him publicly on Koffee With Karan saying, "Ram Gopal Varma was, not Ram Gopal Varma is."
He also derided his erstwhile mentor's much-reviled Sholay remake, ambitiously titled Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, which crashed and burned in spectacular fashion.
