Shirish Kunder extends the olive branch; apologises to SRK publicly
Mumbai: Filmmaker Shirish Kunder has finally put an end to the ongoing animosity between him and superstar Shah Rukh Khan by tweeting a public apology.
The editor-turned-director, who is married to Shah Rukh`s close friend, choreographer-director Farah Khan, had created a stir last year when he took to Twitter for a potshot at the superstar`s mega-budget venture ‘RA.One’.
"I just heard a 150 Cr firework fizzle," Kunder had tweeted.
However, Kunder has now apologised for the same in a tweet Saturday and says he regrets it.
"I`ll always regret one thing that I feel very guilty about. I sincerely apologise for my tweet on `RA.One`," he tweeted.
In January this year, Kunder and Shah Rukh were caught in a brawl at actor Sanjay Dutt`s bash. However, the two called truce.
Recently, Shah Rukh also got photographs clicked with the aliens of Kunder`s new directorial ‘Joker’. This act sparked speculations that the actor is helping in promoting the film.
However, Farah, who was present at a post release event for her acting debut in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’, lost her cool when asked if Shah Rukh was promoting her husband`s film.
"Where have you seen Shah Rukh Khan promoting the film? Has he come on any channel to promote it? He just took one picture with the aliens. Please don`t spread nonsense," she said.
‘Joker’, which is due to release Aug 31, stars Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar.
Even though Farah was not aware of the tweet, she said she was proud of her husband because she feels it takes a lot of courage to apologise.
"I haven`t read the tweet right now. But I am proud of my husband. It takes a big heart to apologise," she said.
