Celebrity chef-turned filmmaker Vikas Khanna has tweeted about the bad experience he had to face at the hands of some industry insiders and film critics. Vikas says that he is being threatened and asked for money if he doesn’t wish to be ‘destroyed’.
In a tweet, the new filmmaker shared that he is shocked and hurt when he was told, “Pay or we’ll destroy you.” Vikas’ film The Last Color released on Amazon Prime Video last week. He, however, appears disappointed with the negative reviews that the film has got.
On Saturday, he even tweeted how actor Kangana Ranaut was right in her criticism of favouritism in the Hindi film industry. “When I used to hear KanganaTeam speak about this issue of critics & favoritism & nepotism it used to hurt my heart. But today I experience it first hand. Minions won’t let outsiders enter even if they put their heart & soul in craft. It’s painful to hear ‘Pay or we’ll destroy you’,” he wrote.
Replying to another tweet by Manish Sharma, he wrote, “Manish ji. This is what breaks my heart. I can endure a lot because I have your support. But for new comers it is very very tough due to these minions. In a separate tweet, Khannaurged the audience to watch his debut film and wrote: “While many critics are asking for money or they will give me 2 Stars or destroy my movie or not give me AWARDS, I ONLY care for my viewers and not reviewers. My Award is YOUR love. Pls watch #TheLastColor on Amazon Prime.”
