Sanjay's apparent dig at Shah Rukh is believed to be in connection with the superstar's upcoming box office clash with Akshay Kumar. SRK's untitled Imtiaz Ali movie and Akshay's Toilet Ek Prem Katha are slated to be released on August 11.

Just after the upcoming clash was made official, Sanjay took to Twitter and said, "KARMA, you beauty! I love and believe in you so much. I love how you go after all that f*** with you. KARTAM BHUKTAM on Independence Day".

Although Sanjay did not take any name in the tweet, the fans assumed he was targeting Shah Rukh. Sanjay's Kaabil starring Hrithik Roshan had clashed with Shah Rukh's Raees a few months back.

It was one of the biggest box office clashes in recent past. The clash had caused much loss for Kaabil, as it had earned less than Raees, the latter having claimed more screens. It looks like Sanjay is still not over this incident.

Nevertheless, Shah Rukh's fans trolled the film maker back. Check some of the responses on Twitter:
