Anupam Kher, Shirish Kunder enter into Twitter war


The film industry divided into two divisions over Aamir Khan’s recent comment on ‘Intolerance’. Some favoured Aamir Khan while some strongly slammed him. The social media is floored with numerous post some favoring Aamir while some boycotted him. Anupam Kher, who showered heavily on Aamir Khan for his comment on ‘Intolerance’, had an unfavorable debate with director Shirish Kunder.

On Monday, here’s what Aamir Khan said at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards. "When I chat with Kiran at home, she says, 'should we move out of India?' That's a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child. She fears what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That does indicate that there is this sense of growing disquiet, there is growing despondency apart from alarm”.

Immediately after his remark, Anupam Kher lashed back at Aamir with a series of tweets like #Dear @aamir_khan. Did you ask Kiran which country would she like to move out to? Did you tell her that this country has made you AAMIR KHAN.

Slamming Kher, Shirish Kunder wrote #AamirKhan was talking about Kiran Rao, not Kiran Kher. Hope this clears the confusion. Jai Ho :-)

Late Wednesday night, Anupam Kher responded to Kunder’s tweet# Omg. Never realized you are so intelligent. Jai Ho.:)

Shirish Kunder’s wife Farah Khan has also taken Aamir's side, telling the press on Wednesday, "I just want to say that there is no 'intolerance' but when somebody has a point of view everybody jumps on him and attacks him."
