Originals OTT Top News

Mumbai: Netflix has released the trailer of its first mockumentary drama in India, AK Vs AK, scheduled to release on December 24, 2020. The film traces the journey of a ‘full-of-himself’ film director Anurag Kashyap, as he kidnaps the daughter of one of Bollywood’s most iconic living legends, Anil Kapoor. What follows is Kapoor’s desperate search for his daughter, as he races against the clock. Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, AK Vs AK is produced by Andolan Films.

On Sunday evening, a war of words broke out between Kapoor and Kashyap on Twitter, when Kapoor congratulated the team of Netflix Original Delhi Crime on their International Emmy win. The exchange escalated as Kashyap teased Kapoor about not winning an Oscar and riding on other’s accolades. In a bid to diffuse the situation, Netflix called for a press conference on behalf of the actors and Motwane. Scheduled on Monday afternoon, the event had Motwane in attendance along Kapoor and Kashyap. The banter continued on stage, and both were seen arguing while showcasing their one-upmanship. Motwane released the original trailer of the movie, while the filmmaker and actor had their own versions showcased. The event ended abruptly with both visibly upset. 

If the trailer launch is anything to go by, AK vs AK will be a roller coaster ride and a crazy Christmas bash for all viewers of Netflix across 190 countries.
