Even before Ajay's 'Shivaay' and 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' fight it out at the box office next month, things have got dirty as on Thursday the actor shared an audio in which KRK is heard saying Karan paid him to tweet against 'Shivaay'. The audio, however, is not verified. It was recorded by "Shivaay" producer Kumar Mangat.

KRK, in his response, tweeted:

In another post, he put blame on Kumar and the 'Singham' star by writing:

Later he tweeted:

While Karan has maintained silence on the matter, Ajay, 47, is already out with his statement, saying he "demands an investigation" whether the filmmaker had bribed KRK or not.

His actress wife Kajol, who is close friends with Karan, has also reacted to the controversy.

She re-tweeted the audio link shared by Ajay and wrote, "Shocked".

The controversy has resulted in trolling and bashing of Ajay-Kajol and Karan by each other fans.

While the filmmaker's followers are bashing the couple for being "insecure" about the box-office clash between the two films, Ajay's fans are poking fun at Karan saying he is scared of "Shivaay".

Both the parties have a lot riding on their respective movies. Ajay makes a comeback to direction with "Shivaay" which he has often said is his most ambitious project yet, and even Karan has gone behind the lens with his Ranbir Kapoor-starrer after a gap of four years.

The movies arrive this Diwali, October 28.
