Speaking with Mashable India, Anurag said, “I wanted to do a lot of work, in fact, I have worked on it to. But OTT ki aaj ke date me himmat nahi hai. Tandav ke baad sab dar gaye hain( OTT doesn’t have the courage nowadays. Everyone is scared since Tandav).” He added, “Now, I am not interested in the (kind of work on) OTT where I am not allowed to use surnames for characters, I am not allowed to show stuff as they exist. I cannot do this hygienic work. I will not do it. If I cannot keep things real, I will rather not do it.” ALSO READ: Anurag Kashyap Says Daughter Aaliyah Doesn't ‘Give A S*t’ About His Struggles; ‘She Tells Me Main Jaise Bhi Kama Rahi Hoon, Aapko Kya Problem’

Kashyap also stated that Sacred Games 3 has been cancelled and only Netflix knows the reason behind it.
