It is common knowledge in the film industry that Ajay Devgan and director Anubhav Sinha can’t stand one another since they worked together in a flop caper named Cash in 2007.
The war is now out in the open again. It started this time when Devgan tweeted about the recent mob violence on the JNU campus in Delhi, “I have always maintained that we should wait for proper facts to emerge. I appeal to everyone- let us further the spirit of peace and brotherhood, not derail it either consciously or carelessly #JNUViolence.”
To this Anubhav Sinha taunted, “Exactly!!!! I am still waiting. You done waiting????”
Ajay and Anubhav have a history. After they worked together in a film called Cash in 2007, the actor and director had a massive fall-out.Such was the intensity of their animosity that Ajay Devgan went on to declare that he was glad the film flopped.
Like they say, an old enmity takes just a little provocation to get pushed back into the forefront. It remains to he seen how Devgan, never known to take insults lightly, retaliates .
A close friend of Devgan says, “At the moment he is playing his cards close to his chest. His film Tanhaji has just released.Anything he says about the JNU situation can and will backfire. Look at the way Deepika Padukone’s visit to the JNU is being used as a political statement . Ajay doesn’t want any harm to come to the film.He has every right to protect Tahnaji from harm. It is not just his film. Hundreds are involved.”
