After Harshvardhan Kapoor gave an interview to The Indian Expressexpressing his disappointment over losing the Filmfare Best Debut award, a senior editor of the magazine has slammed the actor for acting 'self-entitled.'
The award went to Diljit Dosanjh for Udta Punjab but Kapoor was upset because it Diljit isn't exactly a debutant and has acted in several Punjabi films. "If Leonardo Di Caprio wins an Oscar and then comes to do a Bollywood movie, is he a debutant? I don't agree," he had said.
Surprisingly, Filmfare didn't take too well to this.
Anuraddha Choudhary, the magazine's Executive Editor, tweeted saying:
The sense of self entitlement some of these newcomer actors have is beyond imagination. If only they were half as talented.

Not one to take it lying down, Kapoor retorted with a series of tweets, hinting at a full-blown war.
He also said that he would have been happy to lose to Jim Sarbh (Neerja). "Jim Sarbh was amazing in
#neerja and is a newcomer would've been happy to lose to him."
