IAF Asks Netflix To Cut Scenes From Anil Kapoor’s ‘AK Vs AK’

Mumbai: The Indian Air Force on Wednesday asked the makers of AK vs AK to remove some scenes where actor Anil Kapoor is seen using foul language while dressed in the force’s uniform.

“The IAF uniform in this video is inaccurately donned & the language used is inappropriate,” the IAF said in a tweet, attaching a teaser of the film. “This does not conform to the behavioural norms of those in the Armed Forces of India. The related scenes need to be withdrawn.” The IAF tagged Netflix and director Anurag Kashyap as well, who also plays a role in the film.

On Wednesday evening, Netflix released a statement saying that the scenes were not intended to be disrespectful towards the country’s armed forces. “Our intention would never be to disrespect the Armed Forces of India in any regard,” the statement read. “AK vs AK is a film in which Anil Kapoor and his co-stars are playing themselves as actors. At no point does the film represent the Indian Air Force or our Armed Forces. We have nothing but the highest respect for the brave people protecting our nation.”

Kapoor also released a video statement on Twitter apologising for offending sentiments. “It has come to my attention that the trailer of my new film AK vs AK has offended some people as I am wearing the Indian Air while using unparliamentary language,” the actor said. “I would like to sincerely offer my humble apologies for unintentionally hurting anyone’s sentiments.”

The actor went on to explain that his character was playing the role of an airforce officer whose daughter had been kidnapped. He said it was not his or the filmmaker’s intention to disrespect the force. “The anger and rage he [the character] portrays is that of an emotionally distraught father,” Kapoor said. “It was only in the interest of remaining true to the story that my character is still wearing the uniform on the quest of finding his missing daughter.”
