Some or the other time Bollywood have to face objection or criticism over sensitive issues touched by them. Lately, in the trailer launched ‘AK vs AK’, Anil Kapoor has been seen donning an untucked trademark blue full sleeve shirt of the IAF also, in one of the dialogues, Kapoor have used the cuss words. Such behaviour has been highly irrelevant. On same action, The Indian Air Force on took objection to the “inaccurately” donned uniform of the force also the language used in the trailer. This is from an upcoming movie starring Anil Kapoor ‘AK vs AK.’ Well, after the objection made, Anil Kapoor took the responsibility of what is shown.
It started with tweet from the Indian Air Force (IAF) that said: “related scenes” are needed to be withdrawn. “The IAF uniform in this video is inaccurately donned & the language used is inappropriate. This does not conform to the behavioural norms of those in the Armed Forces of India. The related scenes need to be withdrawn. @NetflixIndia @anuragkashyap72.”
In reply to this Anil Kapoor’s Apologised , “It has come to my attention that the trailer has offended some people as I am wearing the IAF uniform while using unparliamentary language. I would like to sincerely offer my humble apologies for unitentionally hurting the sentiments. My character in the film is in uniform because he is an actor playing the role of an officer. When he finds out that his daughter has been kidnapped, the anger and rage he experiences and portrays is that of a distraught father.
He further specified that, “It was only in the interest of remaining true to the story that my character is still wearing the uniform in his quest to find his missing daughter. It was never my intent or the intent of the filmmakers to disrespect the Indian Airforce. I’ve always had the utmost respect and gratitude for the selfless servive of all our defence forces. So, I truly apologise for unintentionally hurting anyone’s sentiments.”
Following this apology Netflix also did the same.
