New Delhi: Actor Rishi Kapoor today ignored media’s poser on a self-styled film critic’s claim that Karan Johar paid him Rs 25 lakh to write in favour of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which stars the veteran’s son Ranbir Kapoor.
Actor Ajay Devgn, whose Shivaay will clash at the box office with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, last evening shared on Twitter an audio where Kamaal Rashid Khan, who uses his initials KRK in his reviews, is heard making the admission.
Rishi, who was here to attend the BRICS Film Festival inaugural ceremony, was leaving when reporters asked him his take on the controversy. The 63-year-old actor chose not to answer and quickly got into his car and left.
Before the row erupted, the star posted words of praise for both the movies and extended his best wishes to Ajay for Shivaay. Meanwhile, KRK has denied taking bribe from Johar and even claimed that it was Ajay, who offered him money to bash Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He also claimed that Ajay was just using him to target Johar.
