Anurag Kashyap is not someone who minces his words. And that is exactly what the man proved when he recently opened up about his thoughts on Shahid Kapoor’s much spoken about, Kabir Singh. While the film has been bashed for promoting male chauvinism, Anurag Kashyap feels there is nothing wrong about it because at least 75 to 80 per cent of India is like the character of Kabir Singh.
The Manmarziyaan filmmaker said, “Like there were a lot of controversies around Kabir Singh. Everybody can make any film and should make any film, should represent all kinds of people. Kabir Singh does represent more than 75-80 percent of urban India. Why not put it out? If I disagree with it, I won’t see it. But sometimes it’s necessary to see ourselves.”
Kashyap who was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of Audible Suno, an audio show platform, where he has directed Thriller Factory which chronicles crime-stories of the country’s best pulp fiction. The episodes are voiced by Tabu, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and other major stars from Hindi cinema.
He further said, “The first thing is, it’s up to you whether you want to take it on or not. If I disagree with something, if I don’t consider the cinema of a kind cinema at all, I can’t say it cannot exist. I can’t enforce that. We can all co-exist.”
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Anurag Kashyap just released the trailer to his Ghost Stories after the success of Lust Stories.
