INDIA: Anurag Kashyap’s Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat bagged a brand new trailer. Recently, a teaser launch event was held in presence of the filming team and at such occasion the filmmaker commented on PM Modi’s advice to party workers.
Following his comment, Vivek Agnihotri also responded to Anurag on social media platform.
Anurag Kashyap expresses his views on ‘boycott Bollywood’ trend
The Kashmir Files’ famed director Vivek Agnihotri, who is known for his realistic film approach, is very proactive on social media. He is often seen defending his film from any sort of negative reviews and boldly takes a stand against unfavourable Bollywood cultures.
However, in recent times Vivek Agnihotri and Anurag Kashyap are often seen denouncing each other on public platforms. Currently, both the ace directors are again seen making strong statements against one another.
At the BJP’s national executive meeting on day two, Prime Minister Modi advised party members to refrain from making “unnecessary comments” about movies.
This advisory came days after actor Suniel Shetty brought light to the current situation in Bollywood. He urged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to help them get rid of these unnecessary boycott trends and protesters who are creating disturbance to any movie.
According to Anurag Kashyap, nothing would make any difference because ‘the mob is out of control now.’
During the trailer launch of his upcoming movie Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat, Anurag Kashyap said, “It would have mattered if the prime minister (PM) had said this four years earlier. Now, I don’t believe it will matter. It was done to keep their people under control. Now, everything is out of control. Nobody, in my opinion, will pay attention to anyone.”
Adding more to his statement, he said, “By remaining silent, you fuel prejudice and hatred. Now that it has gained so much power, it is a power unto itself. Currently, the mob is out of control.”
Criticizing Anurag Kashyap’s comment, Agnihotri responded via his Twitter handle. He wrote, ‘Audience is ‘mob’ now? Wow! Wow! Wow!’
