The Anupam-Naseer War Is Out In The Open(But Naseer Did Not Call Anupam A Psychopath)



Let’s get one thing straight. Naseeruddin Shh did not call Anupam  Kher  a “psychopath”. The word  he used was ‘sycophant’ in an interview  now gone viral  which  has gone viral. Anupam  reacted with a dignified  video where  he can be heard  politely(and rightly) wondering about Naseer’s career frustrations.

 They have been  at loggerheads  from their early days as actors and have  never been on the same page even when they worked together  in  Subhash  Ghai’s Karm. Now  Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher  have come  out in the open against one another.

 In an interview with the Wire  Naseer says  about Anupam, “I am not on Twitter. These people, the Twitterati, and I really wish they would make up their minds in what they believe in. Someone like Anupam Kher has been very vocal. I don’t think, he needs to be taken seriously, he is a clown, any number of his contemporaries from NSD, NFTII can test to his sycophantic nature, it is in his blood, he can’t help it.”

Harsh words   even when  coming from an  actor who is known  to speak his  mind.

Anpam hasn’t wasted  time   in reacting to Naseer’s  grim rebuke. In a  video posted on social media  Anupam has sarcastically  attributed  Naseer’s remarks to  years  of substance abuse. “What’s in my blood is Hindustan…if you get  2-3 days  of fame  by abusing me you are welcome  to it,” Anupam ends with a smile.

Interestingly a Pakistani  news channel TAG TV  in a news report can be  see supporting Anupam  instead  of Naseer in this fight of two internationally  renowned cerebral  actors.

The Indian  entertainment industry  knows there isn’t much love lost between Anupam and Naseer. Attempts at  projecting a façade  of bonhomie notwithstanding, the two stalwarts  have always been at war , secretly or otherwise. 

Now there is  no going back.
