Mumbai: A recent tweet from noted filmmaker Shekhar Kapur got him engaged in a war of words with renowned lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar.
Shekhar’s tweet on Saturday stated that he still feels like a “refugee” and how some “intellectuals” made him feel “insignificant and small”.
“Started life as refugee of Partition. Parents gave everything to make a life for kids. Was always in fear of ‘intellectuals’. They made me feel insignicant. Small,” read the tweet.
However, he added that he was suddenly “embraced” but still fears those “intellectuals”.
