A still from 'AK vs AK'

Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor has apologised for unintentionally hurting sentiments of the Indian Air Force (IAF) after the organisation raised objection to certain scenes featuring the actor in his upcoming Netflix film–‘AK vs AK’.

Kapoor put out a video to ”sincerely offer humble apology for unintentionally hurting anyone’s sentiments.”

Here is Kapoor’s video message

Explaining the context, the actor said in the film the actor is playing the role of an officer whose fighter was kidnapped. The anger and rage he experiences and portrays is that of an emotionally distraught father and to stay true to the character the actor stays in uniform, he added.

Netflix tweeted saying their intention ”would never be to disrespect” the armed forces of India in any regard.

Here is Netflix’s clarification

Raising objection to the ”inaccurate” donning of its uniform and the language used by actor Anil Kapoor in the trailer, the Indian Air Force (IAF) has written to Netflix asking them to delete the objectionable scenes before the film is released.

The film is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, and slated to release on December 24.

Earlier, IAF had also objected to the negative portrayal of the force in the Netlflix movie Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. It had also objected to the portrayal of officers as gender-biased in the film.
