Anurag Kashyap, often touted as a thinking filmmaker, made a big bad faux pas, when he tweeted about the veteran actor Dilip Kumar passing away last night. He however, was quick enough to correct his mistake.
The filmmaker found himself in deep trouble when he tweeted, “Two deaths today…Ajay Jhingran and now Dilip Saab. Something else died too..Shittiest day ever…”
Later, on realizing his blunder, he immediately apologized. He tweeted, “Apologies for the Dilip Saab tweet. I panicked because of three back to back messages. He is fine and the news is not true”.
Something very similar happened last year with B-town actor Shreyas Talpade. Like Anurag Kashyap, he too was caught in an awkward situation after he tweeted about Balasaheb Thackery’s death.
Meanwhile, a picture of a well rested Dilip Kumar in the ICU was doing the rounds, courtesy a family member.
Dilip Sahab’s wife Saira Banu said that the actor is on his road to recovery but needs lot of rest.
“He has to overcome the problem and it will take some time. But he is recovering. This morning he got up and had tea. He needs to rest. I thank all the fans and well wishers for their prayers and request them to continue with it,” Saira Banu said.
Dilip Kumar was admitted to Mumbai’s Lilavati hospital on Sunday following a heart attack.
