Katti Batti is making headlines and so is Imran Khan.
But both are hitting the headlines for different reasons. Imran Khan was recently termed “medically challenged” by director Rahul Rawail on Twitter.
Imran Khan in yesterday’s Mumbai Mirror ” Is Rahul Rawail still around?” My sympathies with this mentally challenged person

For all those who didn’t know Director Rahul Rawail, he’s known for films like ‘Love Story’ (1981), ‘Betaab’ (1983), ‘Jeevan Ek Sangharsh’ (1990), Anjaam (1994), and Jo Bole So Nihaal (2005).
He was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Director twice. Rahul Rawail is credited for the launch of many actors like Kumar Gaurav and Vijeta Pandit in Love Story, Sunny Deol in Betaab, Kajol in Bekhudi (1992), and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya (1997).
Hua ye tha ke Imran Khan, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, said ‘Is Rahul Rawail still around?’ Now, this was in response to a question that suggested that Rahul had tried to create trouble between Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan in the past.
It so happened that Rahul told Ranbir that Avantika had openly criticised his film Rajneeti. That soured Imran’s friendship with Ranbir and Imran went on to clarify that Rawail did so basically after Avantika passed on the director’s film Buddha Mil Gaya.
Things just took off from here. After the tweet, Rahul Rawail’s nephew went on to say a couple of more things like “Imraan Khan needs a reality check. It was Mr. Aamir Khan that went from pillar to post promoting Jaane Tu… and his goodwill and credibility got the audience into the theaters. Imraan Khan’s claim to fame is Once upon a time 2 [he ruined the brand franchise built by the stellar performance of Ajay Sir] & “Gori Tere Pyaar Main” which happens to be a landmark disaster in all senses in the solid dharma productions library. Both these above mentioned films are appx loss estimated of Rs 50cr+ to the producers/financiers/distributors. Shahrukh Khan says in Chak De India “Pehle Apni Game Baaki Logon Se Unchi Karo, Phir Apni Aawaz Unchi Karna” _ Its extremely sad to hear Imraan Khan make a statement like this about Mr Rahul Rawail. If his grand uncle was alive today [the legendary film maker Mr Nasir Hussain, who was a dear friend of Mr Rahul Rawail’s father Shri H S Rawail [Mere Mehboob and Laila Majnu] ] he would have put this obstinate, self conceited, disaster of a non actor in his place….Imraan Khan needs to know his position in the trade today – he has only made it to the party list, that’s it !!!! Today a film with me as a leading man will take a bigger draw then him….now it’s time for him to piggy back on Kangana Ranaut. “Imraan Khan aaj producer ke liye free main mahenga hain !!!”
Oops…ab ye nya tareeka hai to promote Katti Batti ya ye sach mein ek sansani khez yudh hai…
Let’s wait and watch..!!! By the way, Katti Batti ka trailer dekha hai kisi ne?? It’s awesome 🙂
