Shirish Kunder has been taking potshots at SRK"s film on the micro-blogging site Twitter ever since the science fiction released. He tweeted, “The super hero in Ra One has all the powers in the world, but to entertain." Going a step further, Shirish called it a flop. The filmmaker wrote, “I just heard a 150 cr firework fizzle."
Shirish"s Twitter rant against Shahrukh Khan did not stop there. He went on to compare the business of Ra.One with collection of Salman"s movie Bodyguard on the first day. The filmmaker tweeted, “Bodyguard is trending. Everything else is pending."
However, Shirish Kunder was a close friend of Shahrukh Khan and he has worked as editor for his hit movies like Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om. But their friendship hit the rough patch after SRK refused to do Shirish"s upcoming film Joker, which is Shirish"s most ambitious 3D movie.
