Simran Director Hansal Mehta gives it back to Apurva Asrani with this post!
Controversies have become an inseparable part of Bollywood – one goes another comes. And when the matter is related to Kangana Ranaut, controversies are not an unusual thing anymore!
It is known to all how the famous writer Apurva Asrani was sidelined in the credits given for Simran and how Kangana was given the credit of co-writer even before Apurva Asrani.
A few days back, the writer had expressed his disappointment cum anger on the social media, penning down a long Facebook post. In his post, Apurva accused the filmmakers of not giving him the appropriate credits.
Now the director of Simran, Hansal Mehta has come out lashing back at the writer. He tweeted a picture which had his message. It reads, “Yes, I am guilty. Guilty of crediting individuals who contribute to making my films very special to many of us. And yes I will be guilty. Not once more. But a thousand times over. Call me names, as many names as you want. But in your desperation to seek attention and gain sympathy, do not try to harm my film.”
It was also the last line of Apurva’s post – “I wish that my dear friend Hansal shows some spine and either refutes or endorses my story,” that pricked the director.
Hansal added to his post saying, “My spine is whatever it is, weak or strong, it is only for my film and nothing else. And when I do speak it will be in the service of my film- not driven by any blackmail or any noise on social media where dignity is perceived as weakness and conversation is replaced by allegation. I don’t owe anybody an explanation except to those colleagues who work with love, respect and are genuine stakeholders in our efforts to make films. And some free advice to those that jump the gun just to be relevant- go get a life. Do some work that you can genuinely own. Endure the pain that comes with making an entire film and make that journey your own. Then go give yourself all the credit in the world.”

Well, that was a smart way of answering back without taking anybody’s name in particular. Now, it will be interesting to see if the writer reacts on this or not!
