Lootcase director responds to Kunal Kemmu’s demand for equal opportunities as other stars

Last month the Disney+ Hotstar had announced the release of multiple movies on their OTT platforms. The movies that were to be released included Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb, Alia Bhatt’s Sadak 2, Abhishek Bachchan’s The Big Bull, Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj: The Pride Of India, Vidyut Jammwal’s Khuda Haafiz and Kunal Kemmu’s Lootcase. A huge live press conference was arranged to announce the release of the movies. Almost all the stars of the film were invited to the conference, except for Kunal Kemmu and Vidyut Jamwal.

This created huge anger in netizens, which ultimately went to the demand of boycotting the OTT platform for promoting nepotism. Asking for equal opportunities, Kunal Kemmu had tweeted, “Izzat aur pyaar maanga nahi kamaya jaata hai. Koi na de toh usse hum chhote nahi hote. Bas maidaan khelne ke liye barabar de do chhalaang hum bhi oonchi laga sakte hai.” The director of his film Lootcase, in an interview with Zoom, has reacted to the same.


Rajesh Krishnan on an interview with Zoom said, “It’s very hard for me to judge somebody unless I walk a mile in their shoes. And as an individual, he did what he did and I respect him for what he did. Do I have a point of view? These are things that we will probably discuss in privacy, but I’m just saying that it’s his outlook. I mean look at him, he is a national award winner, who am I? I am just somebody who has done a bunch of ad films in the last 15-20 years. I am nobody to comment on a Kunal Kemmu.”

Vidyut Jamwal had too mentioned and slammed the OTT for their unjust behaviour. He had earlier tweeted, ” A BIG announcement for sure!!  7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES”
