Netflix film AK vs AK leaked on piracy website Tamilrockers and others after its release.
AK vs AK is a 2020 Indian Hindi-language black comedy thriller film directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. Anurag Kashyap, the executive producer, and dialogue writer, also stars alongside Anil Kapoor as the title characters, with Yogita Bihani, Sonam Kapoor, and Harshvardhan Kapoor in supporting roles. The story, written by Avinash Sampath, utilizes a film-within-a-film narrative where the main actors play fictionalised versions of themselves. After a public feud between Kashyap, an eccentric film director, and Anil Kapoor, an aging film star, the former kidnap the latter’s daughter (Sonam) and forces Kapoor to search for her while his assistant (Bihani) films them as part of his next project.
An aspiring filmmaker, Yogita, records the life of Anurag Kashyap for her planned documentary.[b] Kashyap and Anil Kapoor are interviewed on a variety show. After an audience member asks if the director or the actor is more important, they start arguing about the question and insulting each other’s careers, eventually culminating in Kashyap throwing a glass of water in Kapoor’s face. This becomes a major scandal for Kashyap and causes other film personalities to cut ties with him and back out of his projects. As he sits in his bedroom enraged, Yogita says that she has an idea.
Later, on Christmas Eve and Kapoor’s birthday, Kashyap goes to his set along with Yogita and tries to pitch him a new story about a mad director who kidnaps the daughter of an aging actor, who has to find her. Kapoor is not interested at first but realizes that his daughter, Sonam, has actually been abducted by Kashyap, who wants to capture his real actions and emotions. Kashyap tells him the rules: he has ten hours (until sunrise the next day) to find her, he can’t get the police or anyone else involved, all calls he makes or receives must be on speakerphone, and that Yogita’s camera must record everything.
One might love or hate Harshvardhan Kapoor’s character in Netflix’s AK vs AK, but surely can’t ignore him. Harshvardhan, who made an extended cameo in the film starring his father Anil Kapoor and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, in his latest Instagram entry, wrote that his character was a “fictionalised exaggerated version” of him. Harshvardhan who played the role of a quintessential spoilt brat wrote in his note: “Hi guys hope everyone’s having a great weekend and staying safe. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to all of you that have watched AK vs AK over the last two days and written to me and enjoyed the film and my scenes I really didn’t expect it and it means a lot to me… really does. I also wanted to take this opportunity to get a few things across. The character I’m playing in the film is a fictionalised exaggerated version of me.”
