Phantom may have fallen, but Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane are still partners in crime
Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane are definitely two of the best directors in the country today. Together, they directed the first season of ‘Sacred Games’ which turned out to be a massive success. They were also partners of Phantom films, the production house which was dissolved following allegations of sexual misconduct against Vikas Bahl.
Taking to Instagram, Anurag Kashyap posted a picture of himself with his ‘partner in crime’ Vikramaditya Motwane. Check out the photo here:
It’s a well known fact that Anurag and Vikram are close friends despite having contrasting styles as filmmakers. “Great thing on ‘Sacred Games’ is that even though we are co-directors we never went on each other’s set. Him and I on the same set, impossible. No chance. We’ll kill each other,” Vikramaditya said in an interview with Times Now.
Speaking on their partnership, Anurag told Times Now, “That’s because creativity is not a collective job. It’s about one person. Whenever we write, he’ll do his draft and give it to me. I’ll rewrite my draft, he won’t say a word, I’ll give it back to him. If he is the director, he’ll do whatever he wants to do with it. If I am the director, I’d do whatever I want to do with it. When I was doing my film ‘Wasseypur’ and he sat in the edit room, I had left the country. Because if I was in the country, I would have taken a flight and killed each other. That’s how it is.”
We hope that the two keep doing fabulous work together in the future as well.
