Vishal Bhardwaj Supports Meghna Gulzar After Raazi Writer Harinder Sikka's SHOCKING Allegations; Says, 'I Only Went On Set Once, Had Gulab Jamun'
Not very long ago, Harinder Sikka, the writer of Raazi, had hurled a streak of shocking allegations on filmmaker Meghna Gulzar. In an interview with Republic TV, Harinder alleged Meghna of intentionally not giving him the credit on various platforms. He had also accused Meghna of getting his name removed from everything during the Jaipur Literature Festival. He further went on to claim that she didn’t allow him to launch his book. Moreover, Harinder claimed that Meghna didn't direct Talvar and that it was helmed by Vishal Bhardwaj instead. Now, the latter has issued a clarification on his Twitter account.

In a couple of tweets, Vishal wrote that he had visited on the sets of Talvar only once and he has no role whatsoever. "I only went on the sets of Talvar once, on the muhurat to break the coconut and have gulab jamun Smiling face with smiling eyes. Talvar was directed by @meghnagulzar and it was out and out her creation. Anyone who refutes this is misinformed. @JungleePictures #PritiShahani @PritiShahani," wrote the filmmaker.

He added, "She has proved her creative prowess again with the beautiful Raazi and the brave Chhapaak."

Take a look:


During his interview, Harinder Sikka held an email printout in his hand and said, "I wrote Raazi and this is proof against my name by (Meghna) Gulzar. It was written to me by Jaipur Literature Festival. I was removed from everything, from Filmfare, my book was not allowed to be launched by Gulzar in person. You want me read out this email where Jaipur Literature Festival head says, ‘In my 35 years of career, I have never seen anybody bulldozing to remove one person.’ In this particular case, Gulzar is the case in point.”

“My book was tried to be delayed? Why? Every credit must go to Meghna Gulzar. First Jaipur Literature Festival, then the Filmfare Awards. The best original screenplay award was to be given to me but it was removed, it was given to some film by the name Andhadhun which was a copy of a French book because I was to be removed," he added.
