Anupam Kher took to Twitter on Wednesday evening and hit back at Naseeruddin Shah after the latter equated him to a 'clown'. In a 1 minute 30 second video, Anupam Kher replied to Naseeruddin's remarks by saying that his comments do not affect him in any manner. Calling it a love-filled message, Anupam began the video by saying in Hindi, "I saw your interview in which you spoke about me and called me a clown, sycophant, someone who shouldn't be taken seriously and that it runs in my blood. Thank you for this but I do not take you or your statements seriously." 

Anupam went on to say, "Though I have never spoken ill about you, I would like to say now that you have spent your entire life in frustration. If you can criticise the likes of Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Shah Rukh Khan and Virat Kohli, then am sure I'm in great company." 

He further added, "None of these people have taken your statement seriously. Because we all know that since years the kind of food you have been consuming, you cannot tell right from wrong. If by defaming me, you make headlines for a day or two then I wish you this happiness. May God keep you happy. Your well wisher, Anupam." 

Take a look at Anupam Kher's response below: 

In a recent interview with The Wire, Naseeruddin said, “You have to laud the courage of a girl like Deepika who is in the top firmament and yet takes a step like this. Even if she has a lot to lose."  He added, "Someone like Anupam Kher has been very vocal. I don’t think he needs to be taken seriously. He’s a clown. Any number of his contemporaries from NFD and FTII can attest to his sycophantic nature. It’s in his blood, he can’t help it.”

I am rather astonished to see that a genius actor of Nasiruddin Shah's stature can make such a derogatory comment against his fellow actor,a popular and adorable person as well. I feel sorry for Nasiruddin Shah's mental state owing to advanced age. I would like to hail Anupam Kher for his restrained and graceful rebuttal.

Both are clowns and has beens! No one need pay any attention. I do agree with Anupam on Naseer being A bitter old man now.

This is not the age and time for these two to talk like this

Anupam kher is actually double face. Everyone in the industry knows about him. He is a disgrace

Keep blaming each other. I can only imagine how long will it take India to reverse the damage that modi has done to its foundations. He has sown the seed of doubt.

I don't understand how this talented and admired actor can be so ungrateful to his colleagues and for the opportunities he's had. He's a phenomenal actor a brilliant creative force, but he has an ungenerous spirit.

Well Said Anupam Sir. Naseer has lost his mind many years ago. He come across as a bitter, jealous and frustrated person.

Its sad to see Nasir talking like this, not sure why would you talk bad about people you work with.
