Kamaal Rashid Khan, popularly known as KRK, is gonna be needing a lot of ointment.

The 'Deshdrohi' actor, who is famous for shooting his mouth off about Bollywood stars on Twitter (not to mention dropping casual misogyny like Snoop Dogg drops rhymes), posted a series of controversial tweets about Anurag Kashyap's upcoming film 'Bombay Velvet' last Saturday. In these, he alleged that Karan Johar, who is making his acting debut in the film, had threatened him against giving the film a negative review, which he is infamous for.

Despite the enormity of the allegations, Johar stayed silent and didn't issue a clarification, which spurred KRK on even more.

He then went on to even post a video about why he thinks 'Bombay Velvet' will be a complete washout.

And then he came up with a rather violent and morbid sort of challenge for Kashyap.

('Hathiyar' means weapon, but the kind that creates more people instead of killing them. Geddit? Great.)

At a press conference held on Tuesday for 'Bombay Velvet', Kashyap and Johar responded to KRK's antics.

In this, Kashyap says, "We are going to send KRK an ice-box, a specially designed one, in which he can store his 'hathiyar' and can be preserved at the upcoming Indian cinema museum. We can say, 'This is the hathiyar belonging to KRK, India's most inconsequential critic. We could sell tickets separately for this too."
