Anil Kapoor has thanked Nawazuddin Siddiqui for appreciating his new movie, AK Vs AK. Anil also reminded Nawazuddin of his cameo in the Vikramaditya Motwane movie.
Nawazuddin took to Twitter on December 30 to share his review of AK Vs AK. He wrote, “Watched #AKvsAK. Top notch performance by @anuragkashyap72 & @AnilKapoor aka The AKs. A very unique & interesting experiment by @VikramMotwane which was once perfectly paced & amazingly executed. Do watch it guys only on @NetflixIndia @netflix.”
Reacting to the tweet on Saturday, Anil wrote, “Thank you such a lot @Nawazuddin_S !! And I’m certain you noticed you were part of it too!!”
AK Vs AK stars Anil and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap as exaggerated versions of themselves. Nawazuddin doesn’t appear on screen but is heard on the phone as he plays himself. He’s heard talking to a livid Anurag on the phone, rejecting his movie. Anurag screams at him, “How dare you rubbish my offer? I’m the one that made your career with Gangs Of Wasseypur.” The Sacred Games actor calmly replies that he’s not happy with the fee offered to him for the project and disconnects the phone.
AK vs AK, which is streaming on Netflix, stars Anurag as a brash movie director who kidnaps popular film star Anil’s daughter Sonam Kapoor and films his search for her in real-time to present it as his next blockbuster. The director and actor constantly mock and criticise every other all over the film. They had also had a fake showdown when they presented the movie’s trailer at a press convention final month.

The Hindustan Times review of the movie read, “AK vs AK will have to’ve sounded like a home-run on paper, but it isn’t as tightly constructed as it could’ve been and the twists are relatively telegraphed. For all its ingenuity, it can’t help but feel like B-material — a dusty old idea spruced up for the streaming age.”
