Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap, who are all set to star in Vikramaditya Motwane's upcoming Netflix film, left Tweeple perplexed after having a war of words on the micro-blogging platform.
It all started when Kapoor took to Twitter to shower praises on International award-winning series 'Delhi Crime'.
"I've said it once and I'll say it again because they absolutely deserve it! Congratulations to the #DelhiCrime team! Nice to finally see more of our people get international recognition. @ShefaliShah_ #WelcomeToHollywood," read the 'Malang' actor's tweet.
Reacting to the same, Kashyap took a jibe at him and wrote, "Nice to see some deserving people get international recognition. Waise, aapka Oscar kidhar hain? No? Achha... nomination?"
Kapoor then tweeted, "The closest you have come to an Oscar is watching Slumdog Millionaire win Oscars on TV. #TumseNaHoPayega."
And just when netizens thought it was a fun banter between friends, Anurag's tweet left them scratching their heads!
The filmmaker tweeted, "Says the k-k-k-ing of hand-me-down films. Weren’t you the second choice for this film also?"
