Anurag Kashyap’s claim

Reacting to recent comments of Anurag Kashyap, The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri has said that he disagrees with the Gangs of Wasseypur director. Vivek also called Anurag, sarcastically, ‘Bollywood’s one and only Milord’.


Anurag in a recent interview, cited Pushpa, Kantara, and KGF’s examples while explaining his viewpoint. He had told Galatta Plus, “Films like Kantara and Pushpa give you the courage to go out and tell your stories. But KGF 2, however big the success, when you try and emulate that and set a project up, that’s when you start heading towards disaster. That’s the bandwagon that Bollywood destroyed itself on. You have to find films that give you courage.”

Vivek Agnihotri, who made headlines all year through for The Kashmir Files, slammed Anurag’s opinion. He posted a news clip and tweeted, “I totally totally totally disagree with the views of Bollywood’s one & only Milord. Do you agree? (sic).”

Many internet users informed Vivek that the headline ‘misquoted’ Anurag. One of them wrote, “First see the interview ..he is misquoted here actually.”


Some also agreed with The Kashmir Files director. One person wrote, “Actually he is correct as nowadays Bollywood glamour is not working anymore. Audience more focused on content-oriented movies.” Another one suggested, “He should introspect.”
