In the midst of the promotional activities for the upcoming thriller film “Kennedy,” director Anurag Kashyap’s recent statements, followed by a response from actor Chiyaan Vikram, have sparked speculations about a possible rift between the two renowned personalities.

During an interview with Anupama Chopra at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, Kashyap revealed that he initially wrote the role of Vikram in the movie, but alleged that the actor never responded to his attempts to contact him. Moreover, the director mentioned that he named the film “Kennedy” after finalizing Vikram for the role, as Kennedy happens to be the actor’s real name. Kashyap stated, “Chiyaan Vikram’s real name is Kennedy (Kennedy John Victor). I reached out to him. He never responded. So then, I reached out to Rahul.”

In response to Kashyap’s statements, Vikram took to his social media platform to address the issue and provide clarification. In the introduction of his post, Vikram mentioned revisiting their conversation from over a year ago for the sake of their friends and well-wishers on social media. The actor explained that as soon as he heard about Kashyap’s assumption through one of his friends, he promptly contacted the director. Vikram clarified that he never received any messages from Kashyap because his old email address and phone number were no longer in use. The actor concluded his statement by expressing excitement for the film “Kennedy” and sending love as Chiyaan Vikram, also known as Kennedy.

Anurag Kashyap later quoted Vikram’s tweet and clarified his stance on the matter. He acknowledged that Vikram provided him with his correct contact information and even showed interest in reading the script. However, by that time, the film was already in the pre-production stage, and they were only a month away from commencing shooting.

According to a report by the PTI, Rahul Bhatt, who plays a significant role in “Kennedy,” stated that his character in the film is much darker compared to his previous work in “Ugly.” Bhatt compared the role to the iconic angry young man characters created by the famous screenwriting duo Salim-Javed and referred to it as Anurag Kashyap’s version of an angry middle-aged man.

With the statements from both Anurag Kashyap and Chiyaan Vikram, it appears that the alleged rift between them was a result of miscommunication rather than any underlying discord. As the film’s release approaches, fans eagerly await the thrilling experience promised by “Kennedy” and anticipate witnessing the talents of these renowned individuals on the silver screen.
