Vivek Agnihotri disagrees with Anurag Kashyap as he slams Kantara, Pushpa | Bollywood

In response to a recent statement by Anurag Kashyap, Vivek Agnihotri has said that he disagrees with the director of Gangs of Wasseypur. Vivek also sarcastically called Anurag ‘Bollywood’s one and only Milord’. (Also read: Kamal Haasan, Prithviraj call Kantara ‘the movie that stunned them in 2022’)

Vivek shared a screenshot of a news article on Anurag Kashyap’s statement on Tuesday night, tweeting, “I completely disagree with the views of Bollywood’s one & only Milord. Do you agree?” The headline read: “Films like Kantara and Pushpa are destroying the industry: Anurag Kashyap.”

Many internet users informed Vivek that the headline “misquoted” Anurag. One of them wrote, “See the interview first…he’s actually misquoted here.”

Some also agreed with the director of The Kashmir Files. One person wrote, “Actually he’s right because nowadays Bollywood glamor doesn’t work anymore. Audiences are more focused on content oriented movies.” Another suggested, “He should do some introspection.”

Anurag had recently said that the success of Nagraj Manjule’s Sairat ‘destroyed’ Marathi cinema as everyone wanted to emulate the film with the aim of making money. Sairat, the movie released in 2016, is one of the highest grossing Marathi movies.

Anurag had told Galatta Plus, “movies like Kantara and Pushpa give you courage to go out there and tell your stories. But KGF 2, however great its success, if you try to emulate that and take on a project then you start towards disaster. That’s the cart on which Bollywood destroyed itself. You have to find films that give you courage.”

Anurag’s most recent film was Taapsee Pannu starrer Dobaaraa, which received mixed reviews. Next he has Almost Pyaar With Dj Mohabbat, featuring Alaya F and Karan Mehta. The film had its world premiere at the Marrakech Film Festival and is scheduled for release in January 2023.

Vivek builds on the critical and commercial success of The Kashmir Files released earlier this year. It is the story of the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s. Mithun Chakraborty, Darshan Kumaar, Pallavi Joshi and Anupam Kher played important roles in the film.

Popular films Kantara, Pushpa, KGF Chapter 2 also made the highest-grossing films of the year among all Indian films. While Kantara has received mixed reviews, the other two films failed to receive a good critical review.
