Of late, Mr Bhatt has been vocal in slamming Mr Khan, who for long has been passing indecent and lewd remarks towards a string of Bollywood actresses on social media.
In reaction to Mr Bhatt's statements on the controversy, KRK tweeted: "Today I watched @TheVikramBhatt n he said-KRK has got big social media power so he should decide whether he wants to be. Recognised as a troll only or respected critic n I am 100% agree with his statement. So thanks to @TheVikramBhatt for showing me right way. (sic)"
He also said:
Anyway thanks Mr. @TheVikramBhatt for giving me very good advise n I am sorry if I hurt you in the past. Cheers and best of luck for future.? KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 2, 2016
I m sorry to all other Bollywood ppl also if I have hurt anyone by my statement or review. Today a new very serious type of critic has born.? KRK (@kamaalrkhan) July 2, 2016
Responding to KRK's change of heart, Mr Bhatt expressed his admiration for the actor for accepting it on a social media platform.
@kamaalrkhan it takes a lot of courage to correct your ways and accept it on a public platform. I admire you for it.? Vikram Bhatt (@TheVikramBhatt) July 2, 2016
@kamaalrkhan I am sure everybody in our fraternity will accept your apology and applaud you for understanding.? Vikram Bhatt (@TheVikramBhatt) July 2, 2016
@kamaalrkhan you are a talented critic and people will take you seriously now because you are not a troll anymore :) cheers!? Vikram Bhatt (@TheVikramBhatt) July 2, 2016
Time and again, KRK in his tweets wrote in a deprecating manner about actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Huma Qureshi, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, Sunny Leone, Bipasha Basu and Nargis Fakhri.
