KRK tweets clip of Shivaay's opening scene; producers threaten legal action
If you thought you'd heard the last of the Kamaal R Khan-Ajay Devgn war of words, then think again.
The self-proclaimed film critic has now courted fresh controversy by seemingly sharing a video clip of the opening scene of Shivaay on micro-blogging platform Twitter. KRK was apparently watching the film in a Dubai theatre and recorded the film's opening sequence on his cell phone.
His tweet, however, incurred a swift response from the theatre as well as Reliance Entertainment, the studio that is promoting Shivaay.

B this time, KRK had deleted the tweet with the video clip, although screenshots of the same were available with Reliance Entertainment.
KRK on his part has said that he didn't leak any scenes from the film — what he had shared was merely the title.

Shibasish Sarkar, COO Reliance Entertainment, told Bollywood LifeBollywood Life that the studio will be filing a complaint with the Cyber Crime Cell of the Mumbai Police.
KRK was previously in the news when Ajay Devgn released an audio clip, in which the former seemingly admitted to Kumar Mangat (Devgn's associate) that he had been paid (the implication was, by Karan Johar — to tweet negatively about Shivaay.
KRK later held a press conference where he clarified that he had not been paid by Johar or anyone from Dharma, and it was merely a ruse to avoid Mangat, who had been asking him to promote Shivaay on social media.
Karan Johar had said the issue did not dignify a response.
Shivaay and Karan Johar's Ae Dil hai Mushkil have gone head-to-head in a big box office clash this Diwali weekend.
