Anurag Kashyap and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are two of the most established filmmakers of current times. However, their style of filmmaking is drastically different. While one has found immense success with hard-hitting small budget films, the other is synonymous with opulence.

“Sanjay Leela Bhansali has the strength to say something (that he wants to). He creates opera like cinema. It's pure magic. Nobody shoots songs like him. At that scale, you need a lot of patience - I don't have it. Also, you can see Sanjay's money on-screen. He is a pure artiste. I look forward to watching his films because he has a unique way of looking at things,” said Anurag.

Talking about the Padmavati controversy, Anurag opined, "I know what he (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) is going through. I know how he must be feeling."

Padmavati has been under the scanner ever since it went on floors. Numerous protests later, makers voluntarily deferred the release of the film. Yesterday afternoon, we brought you the story that the Censor Board wants changes in Ghoomar song and the title of the film (Padmavat, not Padmavati). Latest on the front is that the Rajput community has vehemently opposed the release of Padmavati despite Censor Board offering to clear the film if Bhansali carries out the cuts, err, modifications.

Meanwhile, in turbulent times like these, like Anurag, Bhansali has found support in many celebs.

Not just about Bhansali, Anurag opened his heart out about many other things. Check out the full interview right here:
