It was a day ex-Maha CM Devendra Fadnavis would like to forget as soon as possible. Mr. Fadnavis had to first deal with the resignation of Ajit Pawar, whcih left him with an expressionless face. As the carried the face devoiid of any expressions or emotions to various press conferences, many pointed out its similarity to actor Arjun Kapoor.
The actor himself took to twitter and accused Devendra Fadnavis of trying to copy his acting skills.
While speaking to reporters, the bollywood actor said, “Since afternoon, I have been closely watching Devendra Fadnavis’ press conference on TV and I am so pissed off right now. That man is trying to copy my acting skills without giving any credit. Look at his face and look at mine in Panipat trailer. This is not just uncanny resemblance, this is blatant copying.”
“Movies are my bread and butter and this ‘copying’ is like a surgical strike on my acting career,” he added.
Arjun found support from bollywood fraternity as his co-actors agreed that Fadnavis must look at alternate career options rather than trying to enter bollywood by copying Arjun.
“Like any other person, Devendraji must also be concerned about his career. Politics is no different from movies. I mean waha bhi acting karni padti hai aur yaha bhi. But trying to take something that belongs to someone else and then trying to sell it as your own is unacceptable. Arjun has mastered the expressionless face and I can understand how it feels when someone tries copying your core skills. While some may think it is flattering, but not for Arjun Kapoor,” said a source close to the actor.
Sources also revealed that the actor could seek legal assistance if Devendra doesn’t get expressions back on his face in a week. With Panipat close to its release date the actor does not want any negative publicity.
