Shah Rukh Khan took to Twitter to celebrate eight years of ‘Chak De! India’ and thanked the filmmaker and director of film including its crew on the occasion. Not only his fans, but also filmmaker Hansal Mehta remembered the film.
Mehta wrote, “8 years of #ChakDeIndia is a reminder to @iamsrk that he is a fine actor and we need to see the actor challenge the star more often.”
Well, the tweet kind of did not go well with Khan as he replied to the filmmaker saying, “@mehtahansal why challenge, the star sir, let him coexist with the actor. They both r a part of me….I kinda like them equally.”
With Khan’s tweet to Mehta, his fans too hit the filmmaker for his tweet. Before it became all the more problematic for Mehta, he made it clear that he missed seeing Khan in similar characters. He tweeted, “Many fans of @iamsrk have taken umbrage to my tweet. I’m as much a fan as them. But I miss him doing more characters like #ChakDeIndia.”
Seems like Mehta wasn’t quite ready for what the fans started saying to him about their favourite superstar.
