However, veteran actor Anupam Kher although, congratulated the
director for the achievement, he also slammed him by calling his
awards dedication as 'fraudish'.
It is to be mentioned, Haider movie director Vishal
Bharadwaj dedicated all the awards to the Kashmiri Pandits genocide
saying, "Yes, I dedicate my award to them and I feel very sad
because they misunderstood my feelings. I have said it before that
the tragedy of Kashmiri Pandits is very big."
However, Anupam Kher who himself is a Kashmiri Pandit called it
a fraud act and slammed the Haider director on Twitter
with a series of posts.
"While I congratulate Vishal Bhardwaj for National Awards but
dedicating them to #KashmiriPandits genocide is such a fraudish
thing to do," says Anupam Kher's first tweet.
The second post by Anupam Kher says, "When was last time Vishal
Bhardwaj spoke about d plight of #KashmiriPandits? He in fact
humiliated us by doing dance of devil at our temple."
The following tweet goes like, "The so called 'Hindu' centric
Govt. gave Haider 5 National Awards which many felt was anti-Hindu
& anti Indian Army. This is NOT Talibanism."
And the last tweet explains, "My reactions to V Bhardwaj comes
from d press con he held after winning National Award &
dedicated his award to #KashmiriPandits genocide."
Well, after receiving the awards and all the good words for the movie Haider, these strong words from Anupam Kher certainly won't please Vishal Bharadwaj.
