Anurag said that it is not like they lack unity. Whether there’s unity or not, it doesn’t matter. According to him, the things that are celebrated the most are also the ones that are trashed the most. That applies to cinema, cricket, our politicians, and our heroes.The filmmaker added that people bring them up, and then they are also the most disappointed by them.
Elaborating further, Kashyap added that it’s not unique; even cricket players face criticism. He stated how if Virat Kohli doesn’t score a century today, they’ll criticize him and pull Anushka Sharma into it. According to him, in this country, everyone’s an expert in everything. Wherever you go, everyone knows who should be the cricket captain, who should be a film star, who should be the prime minister, who should be what. Everyone knows everything.
Anurag added that we bring down whoever appears too high, not those who are invisible. So, unity has got nothing to do with it. Bollywood has a difference of opinion vis-à-vis lots of things but despite that they can still sit together and come together and talk. He also shared that there are very few people who are rabid opportunists and the industry collectively avoids them. However, they are the one percent, not more.
Anurag Kashyap is currently promoting their upcoming film, ‘Haddi‘ which stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role along with Ila Arun, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Saurabh Sachdeva, Shridhar Dubey, Rajesh Kumar, Vipin Sharma, and Saharsh Shukla. The film will hit the theatres on September 7 on an OTT platform.
