Filmmaker Farah Khan is not known to lose her cool on social media. She usually expresses her views in a good way. She believes that social media is a good platform to connect with people, but one has to be very careful about what they post. She says she is blunt in real life but very careful on social media. However, she recently got miffed by India’s most loved comedian Kapil Sharma’s behavior and apparently called him “mannerless”.
She had tweeted:
Dear Mannerless people,if u want me 2 attend ur premier/preview/party DON,T send me a “ janta invite” on WhatsApp! U r not doing me a favour! The least u can do is make a personal call. If u cant find the time for it what makes u think i hav time 2 get ready n cm for you??!😡😡😡

As per media reports, Farah’s reaction shocked Sharma who hoped that his “big powerful friends” in the industry watch the film later.
Kapil was quoted by SKJ Bollywood News as saying:
“We had a show on Thursday. In whatever way I thought correct I had invited all my friends from the film industry. It was mostly attended by cast crew and our friends and family. I hope my big powerful friends in the film industry will see the film later.”
It is said that Kapil was sending invites to big names in the Bollywood to attend his just released movie Firangi’s premiere. However, he chose the WhatsApp route to send the invite to Farah Khan and this offended her.
From Farah’s tweet it seems like she took a dig at Kapil’s invitation and called it a “janta invite” – meaning she wanted him to at least call her.
Earlier, Kapil Sharma had hosted a special screening of Firangi for Bollywood celebrities.
Meanwhile, it looks like the stars are not at all in favour of the comedian. His pre-independence drama Firangi has turned out to be a dud at the box-office having collected Rs 7.30 crore in its four-day run. The collections were surprisingly low despite the fact that the movie has absolutely no competition at the box office.
Talking about the poor show of Firangi, trade analyst Girish Johar said the fault lies in the marketing and promotion techniques undertaken by the team.
