The disagreement between two actors from the preferred 80s display Mahabharat, Mukesh Khanna and Gajendra Chauhan, has intensified. It began when Mukesh put out an Instagram put up explaining his absence from the reunion of the Mahabharat forged from The Kapil Sharma Display. Mukesh known as the display vulgar and objected to innuendos and males dressing up as girls to elicit laughs.
Gajendra, who performed Yudishthir in Mahabharat, hit again at his former co-star and puzzled why Mukesh didn’t depart Mahabharat, by which Arjuna dressed up as a girl. Mukesh has now launched a contemporary video, attacking Gajendra, whom he known as ‘Dharamraj’, a connection with the nature he performed in Mahabharat.
Speaking in Hindi, Mukesh had stated in his video, “Dharamraj has displayed his lack of awareness in an interview. He stated, ‘Mukesh Khanna didn’t cross at the display as a result of he has objections to males dressing up as girls and dancing’. Let me remind him that even in Mahabharat, Arjuna dressed up as Brihannala and danced in girls’s garments, so why did he no longer depart that display?’ I believe like giggling after I listen this argument, that too from somebody of the Mahabharat circle of relatives, who calls himself Dharamraj, person who all the time speaks the reality. I feel his wisdom of Mahabharat is missing. After Mahabharat, so much has took place. He has accomplished a large number of ‘vahiyat (vulgar)’ movies. He wouldn’t have spoken like this in a different way.”
In an interview with Hindustan Occasions, Gajendra lashed out at Mukesh and stated that he considers himself as an expert on Mahabharat, which isn’t the case. “In case you see the video, he has himself stated that he used to be no longer invited and that he would no longer cross at the display despite the fact that he used to be invited. That is like ‘maan na maan primary tera mehmaan (whether or not you approve or no longer, I’m your visitor)’. When he used to be no longer invited within the first position, how would he even cross?,” he stated.
“Secondly, I feel he has began considering of himself as an expert on Mahabharat. He is going round giving gyaan to everybody. Within the procedure, he has misplaced his personal wisdom,” he added.
Gajendra accused Mukesh of looking to achieve exposure by means of commenting on distinguished other people. “He desires to touch upon some fashionable other people and convey himself within the limelight. First, he commented on Ekta Kapoor and her Mahabharat, criticising it and announcing that it used to be badly made. Anyone has the precise to make Mahabharat in their very own means. No person has registered Mahabharat in his title. Then, he attacked Sonakshi Sinha, and now he has attacked Kapil Sharma. I feel that is an try to carry himself within the limelight by means of attacking distinguished other people,” he stated.
Speaking about Mukesh’s assault on him, Gajendra stated, “He didn’t take my title however he stated Dharamraj Yudishthir. I additionally need to reply to Bhishma Pitamah. He stated that I’ve made ‘vahiyat (vulgar)’ movies. He insulted FTII, which he has been a scholar of. He has insulted movies and the censor board as smartly. The censor board is a constitutional frame that passes movies. Each and every movie isn’t launched, most effective the ones which can be deemed worthy of public viewing. He stated that he regrets supporting me right through the FTII protests. I remorseful about that he supported me. I by no means requested for his reinforce.”
Gajendra additionally stated that Mukesh used to be most effective an actor on Mahabharat, no longer an expert at the epic. “He turns out to believe himself an expert on Mahabharat, as though he has accomplished a PhD on it. He has simply accomplished a job within the display, identical as me. He has no proper to touch upon my position or occupation.”
“I additionally need to say, movies aren’t vulgar. Motion pictures are both just right or dangerous, hit or flop. He used to be a flop actor prior to Mahabharat. All his movies had failed, which is why he grew to become to TV from movies. He used to be first forged as Dronacharya. Vijayendra Ghatge used to be intended to play Bhishma Pitamah, however he used to be busy with Buniyad, so he needed to let cross of the position,” he added.
Condemning Mukesh’s remarks, Gajendra stated, “I object to his feedback. The day before today, he posted a video on his YouTube channel. I totally condemn it. He must have a look at himself. Those that reside in glass properties must no longer throw stones at others. Please have a look at your individual occupation and flicks. You have been tagged as a flop actor prior to Mahabharat. It used to be Mahabharat which stored your occupation. I used to be only a newcomer. I did two movies prior to doing the display.”
Gajendra stated that The Kapil Sharma Display wouldn’t have been such a success if it used to be as horrible as Mukesh claimed it used to be. “If it’s not high quality, if it’s not are compatible for viewership, nobody will watch it. Crores of other people can’t be mad. You’ll idiot other people for an afternoon or two, no longer for see you later. The Kapil Sharma Display has been working for such a lot of years. With each episode, its TRP will increase. The explanation why he used to be no longer known as at the display is quite attention-grabbing. We came upon that Sony TV did a survey on which actors must be invited. Additionally, to come back on a display like this, you wish to have to have a way of humour. He stated that he does no longer watch The Kapil Sharma Display. However in his video, he has described what occurs within the display – what used to be the remark made on Ramayan’s Arun Govil, how Krushna talks… This implies he watches the display, he’s mendacity when he says he does no longer. How does he know what occurs within the display?,” he requested.
Responding to Mukesh’s feedback that he has accomplished ‘vahiyat (vulgar)’ movies, Gajendra stated, “I feel it’s higher if he seems at his personal filmography, he used to be tagged as a flop actor prior to Mahabharat. You have a look at any of his movies prior to the display. None of them have been a success. In a different way, he wouldn’t have the want to shift his occupation to tv.”
“See, I’m really not from Mumbai and I don’t have any movie background. I got here alone, had my very own combat and I constructed my occupation alone. I’ve accomplished greater than 600-700 serials, 200 movies. I’ve accomplished small roles in addition to giant roles as a result of beggars can’t be choosers. However I’ve labored within the business, I’ve given 30 years of my existence to the artists’ affiliation, to serve my group of artists in Mumbai,” he added.
In conclusion, Gajendra stated that Mukesh used to be his ‘senior’ however he’ll no longer backpedal if his feedback proceed. “He studied on the 1974 batch of FTII, he’s my senior. He’s older than me and I recognize him however it’s best that he does no longer make such feedback. If he does, then he’ll get a reaction. I didn’t need to give it again to my senior however I’ve to as a result of he’s forcing me to.”

Mukesh, within the video, had taken umbrage for Gajendra likening Mahabharat with Kapil’s display. “How is he evaluating Ved Vyas ji’s Mahabharat with The Kapil Sharma Display? That used to be a unique more or less dance and this can be a other more or less dance. Arjuna used to be a warrior and he used to be cursed by means of Urvashi to reside like a girl for a 12 months. He performed his sentence like a warrior. Although he danced as Brihannala, it used to be Kathak dance, which he taught to Rajkumari Uttara. He by no means did obscene such things as, ‘Aa baith na mere paas, tu kahaan jaa rahi hai (Come and sit down subsequent to me, the place are you going)?’. Arjuna most effective danced. Even Lord Krishna dances, everybody enjoys it. I don’t have a topic with dancing. No person dances in The Kapil Sharma Display however their movements… Notable movie stars and cricket stars come at the display and those other people (the solid participants) say ‘Aye, primary tere paas baithna chahti hoon (I would like to take a seat subsequent to you).’ You chuckle at this stuff? I’ve an objection to that,” he added.
Mukesh puzzled Gajendra’s intended lack of awareness and taken up his tenure because the chairman of the Movie and Tv Institute of India. “I must no longer be announcing this but if I get started speaking, I don’t have any holds barred… The scholars of FTII protested when he used to be appointed because the chairman as a result of he has accomplished such movies. I supported him on the time however now I remorseful about it,” he stated.
Mukesh additionally printed that his anger with Kapil Sharma is going again a couple of years. “All through Shaktimaan, he did slightly skit on his display. On the time, Krushna Abhishek additionally labored with him. Perhaps it used to be in Comedy Circus. Kapil Sharma did slightly skit through which he used to be within the Shaktimaan gown and there used to be a woman status a long way away. There used to be a mattress too. It’s proven that Shaktimaan strikes against the lady however will get a choice, so he flies away. He comes again and the similar factor occurs once more. I used to be so livid, I known as Krushna Abhishek and I stated, ‘What are you doing? You’re appearing a natural personality like Shaktimaan in any such mild?’ Krushna instructed me that he used to be intended to do the skit however Kapil sought after to do it as an alternative. I stated, ‘How do you tarnish a personality’s symbol like this? Who permits you? Is there no censor to inspect the content material?’ That is the issue I’ve. There’s neither censorship of commercials nor such presentations or even movies. The brand new era which movies by means of copying international movies, forgetting the truth that their tradition isn’t the similar as ours,” he stated, including, “This is a just right factor that they didn’t insult themselves by means of calling me, else I’d have instructed them at the telephone itself that their display is vulgar,” he stated.
