Anurag Kashyap questions the responsibility of the journalist over Salman Khan fiasco

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who won a glorious battle against Censor Board over ‘Udta Punjab’, has something to say about the recent ongoing controversy embroiling Salman Khan. The ‘Sultan’ star had compared himself to a rape victim while narrating the physical hardship that he suffered as a wrestler during the filming of ‘Sultan’. This didn’t go down well with a lot of people who criticised him for his remark.

Director Anurag Kashyap has come out in open and shared his opinion over the same. In an interview he said, “Why are we making it out his individual responsibility? It is very unfortunate that he made an analogy like that, it is very thoughtless of him, in a way daft of him. I am sure he will be regretting it and will apologise for it. If he really cares, he should apologise for it.”

Later, he also pointed out the responsibility of the journalist, who promoted such a headline. He stated, “But does the responsibility lie Alone with him? The guy who is interviewing him… When the man gives an analogy like this, he laughs at it. He does not question him. In his mind, he is thinking I have got a headline. How irresponsible it is to make that into a headline. I would have taken that out. It does not send a great signal, it empowers misogyny. Suddenly, people have got an issue to jump on.”
