MUMBAI: The Indian Air Force has demanded the streaming website Netflix to remove abusive scenes from the upcoming Bollywood movie ‘AK Versus AK’ in IAF uniforms.
According to Reuters, the IAF expressed anger over the release of the trailer of the black comedy thriller movie two days ago and demanded the removal of abusive scenes from Netflix.
In a tweet, IAF while mentioning the names of ‘Netflix’ and ‘Anil Kapoor’ wrote that the language of Galum Gluch shown in the film does not translate to the Indian Air Force.
The IAF uniform in this video is inaccurately donned & the language used is inappropriate. This does not conform to the behavioural norms of those in the Armed Forces of India. The related scenes need to be withdrawn.@NetflixIndia @anuragkashyap72#AkvsAk https://t.co/F6PoyFtbuB

“Scenes should be removed from the movie,” the Indian Air Force wrote in a tweet and also retweeted a short video of the film, which was tweeted by Anil Kapoor two days ago.
In a short video shared by Anil Kapoor on Twitter, the actor is seen dressed in an Indian Air Force uniform. In the released scenes of the film, it can be seen that Anil Kapoor is wearing an Indian Air Force uniform and talking to filmmaker and actor Anurag Kashyap and at the same time, he also abuses the filmmaker.
The Indian Air Force was furious when the scenes were tweeted and apologized to Anil Kapoor and the management of Netflix India. However, Netflix management did not comment on whether or not to remove the Galum Gluch scenes.
On the other hand, Anil Kapoor also released a video on Twitter apologizing to the Indian Air Force for the scenes in which he was wearing a uniform.
