Self-confessed film critic Kamaal R Khan aka KRK joked about Brahmastra’s box office collections in his latest tweet targeting Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the fantasy adventure epic in which he claimed the theaters are empty, but the movie does a good ‘bumper business’.
On Tuesday, September 20 on his Twitter account, KRK tweeted: “The theaters are empty, but Movie #Brahmastra is still doing great business. Because aliens from Jupiter and Mars are coming to Earth to watch this movie. And unfortunately people can’t don’t see aliens sitting in the theaters.”
KRK was also brutally trolled for his comments when netizens started showing their support for Brahmastra, with a majority of them saying they saw the film in packed theaters. One Twitter user even joked about KRK when he quoted-tweet him, writing, “At least Aliens From Jupiter and Mars watching #Brahmastra. are considered a movie critic.”

It’s not the first time Kamaal R Khan has attacked the big-budget entertainer, as he tweeted on Sept. 16: “I didn’t rate the #Brahmastra movie, yet people didn’t go to the cinema to watch it. So it’s turned out to be a disaster. I hope @karanjohar won’t blame me for the failure like many other Bollywood people.”

For the inexperienced, KRK, who has appeared in films such as Deshdrohi, Sitam and Ek Villain, was arrested in Mumbai on August 30 for his controversial tweets and a sexual assault case and was later released on bail in both cases. On his release from judicial custody ten days later, he said he has forgotten all the “bad” that happened to him, believing it was written in his destiny.
