Anurag Kashyap reveals why he does not work with big stars

In a recent interview, Anurag Kashyap said, “Though I came here to make films, there was a time when I succumbed to it (the habit of chasing stars). Everybody was telling me, ‘Without stars you are doing this… imagine what you will do with stars’. That’s when the tide turns the other way and the slide starts.”

Further, he also spoke about catering to the huge fanbases of the stars. He said, “If you don’t cater to their fanbase while working with a star, they will cancel you. And, my film did get canceled because I was making my own movie. I am not catering to anybody’s friends or fanbase.”  

Speaking about big stars of Bollywood, Anurag said, “Even when they are experimenting or playing around, they think a lot because if their fanbases get upset, they react very strongly. They go after everyone. After Tubelight, Salman Khan fans went after director Kabir Khan.”

Anurag also spoke about OTT becoming a bigger space for actors, he said, “OTTs have just thrown open a space for OTT stars too and equalized the game. It ensured that good actors were getting better roles and better pay cheques. Now, a Pankaj Tripathi or a Nawazuddin Siddiqui can lead a film.”

Anurag Kashyap was last seen in Haddi alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui and delivered a memorable craft. Directed by Akshat Ajay Sharma, Haddi is streaming on Zee 5.
