Controversial Director Provoking Prabhas Fans Again!
Vivek Agnihotri wants to provoke the Prabhas fans once again in order to bring buzz ahead of 'The Vaccine War' release.By: Tupaki Desk | 27 Sep 2023 7:53 AM GMT
Bollywood director Vivek Agnihotri made a super hit like 'The Kashmir Files' but his previous films like 'Tashkent Files' and 'Buddha In Traffic Jam' were not commercial successes. But the humongous success of his last outing had made him very famous. Known for his affiliation with the right winger organizations, he readied 'The Vaccine War' and the possibility of it competing with Prabhas' 'Salaar' became a big talking point.
While Prabhas postponed his movie to December, the much-talked competition died down. But it looks like Vivek Agnihotri wants to provoke the Prabhas fans once again in order to bring buzz ahead of 'The Vaccine War' release. In a recent interview, he took potshots at the fans. He said, “It is often the fans who initiate conflicts and generate online outrage.”
He added, "The Vaccine War is a small film with no stars, made at Rs 12.5 crore budget. Another film, Salaar, was coming. A huge Rs 300 crore film. Their fans were abusing, trolling me, isko bhagao, nahi aana chaiye… Bhaag koi aur gaya.. They ran away." It looks like the 'The Kashmir Files' director is trying to bring hype on 'The Vaccine War' by creating an unnecessary social media war with Prabhas fans. We need to see if this creates any kind of hype on his movie or not.
Abhishek Agarwal who earlier associated with Vivek Agnihotri for The Kashmir Files will be releasing 'The Vaccine War' throughout the country through his Abhishek Agarwal Arts banner. 'The Vaccine War' will be released in 11 languages including Hindi, English, Gujarati, Punjabi, Bhojpuri, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Urdu and Assamese. Pallavi Joshi is the producer and 'The Vaccine War' is based on a true story.
