The Indian Air Force on Tuesday demanded the ‘withdrawal’ of a scene from a soon-to-be-released, Anil Kapoor starrer Netflix movie – “AK vs AK“.
Indian Air Force, retweeting a glimpse of the upcoming movie, AK vs AK, posted by Anil Kapoor, highlighted the bad taste in which Anil Kapoor has worn the Air Force uniform and also criticised the language used by him adding that the same “does not conform to the behavioural norms” of men serving the Armed Forces of India.
Have a look:
For the unaware, “AK vs AK” is a Vikramaditya Motwane movie, starring Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor, “as themselves”. The movie will have Kashyap kidnapping Kapoor’s daughter, Sonam as per the Netflix movie description.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time when the IAF has come up with such a complaint against the entertainment industry.
Earlier in the year, IAF had written to the Central Board of Film Certification, calling out the “undue negative portrayal” of IAF in the Netflix movie Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.
“Dharma Productions had agreed to represent Indian Air Force (IAF) with authenticity and make all efforts to ensure that the film helps to inspire the next generation of IAF officers,” the Air Forces said in its letter to the censor board, which was also sent to Netflix and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Interestingly, real-life Gunjan Saxena, who flew operational sorties in the 1999 Kargil war, had also echoed IAF’s concern back then.
