But obviously everything here comes with controversy. Vivek Agnihotri, director of ‘Kashmir Files’, tweeted this morning: “हमको मालूम है जन्नत की हक़ीक़त लेकिन दिल के ख़ुश रखने को ‘ग़ालिब’ ये ख़याल अच्छा है।” This could have been taken in a different context, but the director accompanied this with the hashtag #Bollywood and #gross which annoyed people on Twitter as they think it’s a dig at ‘Brahmastra’.
हमको मालूम है जन्नत की हक़ीक़त लेकिन⁰दिल के ख़ुश रखने को ‘ग़ालिब’ ये ख़याल अच्छा है। #Bollywood #Disgusting

Even earlier, when there were reports of multiplexes losing millions of rupees for ‘Brahmastra’, the director had tweeted about the fake in Bollywood.
The problem is that everything is fake in Bollywood. And no one is responsible. No industry can survive that invests 0% in R&D and wastes 70-80% money on stars.

This time, however, fans misunderstood his tweet and many trolled him for it. While some users said the filmmaker is just jealous, many said he is a bad loser.
Frustrated Sore loser hona bhi kabhi kabhi acha hain Ghalib jo aap Ho rahe Ho!!! Milte hain end of weekend aur end of week tab tak sulking chalu rakhiye

Meanwhile, the makers are quite pleased, as the film generated a total collection of 160 crores worldwide. Karan Johar expressed his happiness, writing on Instagram: “The light shines bright…
Eternally grateful to the public for their great love…🙏❤️”
The film was released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
