Actor and self-proclaimed film critic Kamaal R Khan, popularly known as KRK, was recently granted bail in the 2020 case of controversial tweets about actors Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, and Irrfan Khan.
KRK granted bail
Recently, the Mumbai court granted bail to KRK in the 2020 case of controversial tweets about actors Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, and Irrfan Khan and in a molestation case in 2021. Days after walking out of jail, he took to Twitter and claimed that he has lost weight after surviving only on water inside the lockup.
He tweeted on Tuesday, “I was surviving with only water for 10 days in lockup. So I have lost 10 kg weight.”
I was surviving with only water for 10 days in lockup. So I have lost 10 kg weight.

Media is creating new stories. I am back and safe at my home. I don’t need any revenge from anyone. I have forgotten whatever bad thing happened with me. I believe, it was written in my destiny.

Cases against him
Khan was arrested by the police at the Mumbai airport earlier this month in connection with his tweets. The FIR was lodged on the basis of a complaint by Yuva Sena leader Rahul Kanal, where he alleged that KRK’s tweets on the late Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor allegedly spread “hatred”.
The complainant said KRK was making hateful comments against late actors Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor. “After Irrfan Khan, who is India’s pride, passed away, he was making poor claims and statements on him. He was also talking crap about senior actor late Rishi Kapoor also,” the complainant further stated.
Also, KRK had allegedly molested an actor back in January 2019 and promised her a lead role in a Hindi movie. A magistrate court in Andheri granted bail to Khan in the case.
