Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade debuted in the Hindi film industry as a director with Poster Boys, a remake of Marathi film Poshter Boyz. The film has Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade in the lead roles.

Poster Boys is about three people whose photo is used by the health department on a poster promoting vasectomy. They decide to take up their fight with the government to the streets.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted the first day business figures of Poster Boys. As per Adarsh, the film has collected Rs 1.75 crore on its opening day.

But something very interesting happened after this. Deshdrohi actor Kamaal Rashid Khan, KRK, poked his nose into the matter and made fun of the poor collection of the film. He also made fun of the Deols and Talpade. Probably he thought that like most of the celebrities, Shreyas and his team will also keep mum.

However, Talpade gave him a stern reply. He quoted KRK’s tweet and wrote, “Aukaat mein reh @kamaalrkhan. Kabhi haath lagaa toh itni zor se patkungaa ki tappa khake chatt se lagega. Jai Maharashtra.”

This gave Twitter users a chance to get back at KRK who is known for mean tweets. They started to retweet Talpade’s tweet. By the time of this article’s publication, it had already received more than 6,100 retweets.
