Director Vishal Bhardwaj seems to know how to hit two birds with a single stone. With Kaminey, he not only tastes success but also wins the friendship of his enemy Karan Johar.
The filmmakers are said to be in a cold war ever since Karan Johar's film Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna clashed with Bhardwaj's Omkara three years ago. But the story is different now. Karan just can't stop praising Vishal after seeing Kaminey.
After attending the Mumbai preview of Kaminey, Karan Johar described the film as edgy, intense, compelling and a shot of great cinema in your face. He is all praise for Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Amole Gupte for their wonderful performance. He also thanked Vishal for the inspiration.
Let's see whether Karan will inspire Vishal too through his film My name is Khan.
