In the glamorous world of Bollywood, Anurag Kashyap is among the most sought-after directors. Among the films he has directed are Saand Ki Aankh, Gangs of Wasseypur, Manmarziyaan, and many others. His current activities are promoting his project, Dobaaraa. Anurag Kashyap recently clarified things in an interview about the #MeToo Movement.
Anurag Kashyap stated in a Siddharth Kannan interview on YouTube that it bothers him when somebody accuses him of doing something inappropriate because he has experienced abuse. Director of Gangs of Wasseypur said, “That (the accusation) bothers me a lot. I come from a history of abuse, so I understand what abuse is. So when someone accuses me of such allegations, it bothers me. You accuse me of murder; you accuse me of anything; I don’t care, but when I am accused of something inappropriate and improper like that, it bothers me, and it makes me very angry. Because I come from abuse, I have been abused, so I understand what that means.”
The Director further stated, “That last thing you want to do is do that to someone else, and when somebody says that, it bothers me.”
His latest project, Dobaaraa, will be Anurag Kashyap’s third collaboration with Taapsee Pannu, following Saand Ki Aankh and Manmarziyaan. This year’s August 19 launch date for the movie, which is described as a new-age thriller, has been set. Fascinatingly, Dobaaraa will signify Taapsee’s return with Pavail Gulati in addition to Anurag Kashyap. To be noted, Taapsee and Pavail previously appeared together in Thappad, a 2020 film directed by Anubhav Sinha. Dobaaraa, directed by Anurag Kashyap, is being co-produced by Sunir Khetarpal’s ATHENA and Ekta Kapoor’s Cult Movies.
