Anurag Kashyap has been openly talking about nepotism that prevails in the industry. The filmmaker was recently in news for calling out the audience for being responsible for nepotism. In his latest interview, the filmmaker reacted when he was asked if he would launch his daughter Aaliyah in Bollywood. He had to be a Bollywood actress, Aaliyah would have undergone the audition procedure and win a role somewhere. Well, after daughter, Kashyap now opens up on having different ideologies with brother Abhinav Kashyap.
During in his latest interview with NDTV, Anurag Kashyap revealed he has been asked by his brother to no interfere in his business. When he was asked if he ever favoured his brother Abhinav Kashyap, he said, “My brother does not need me. Right from the beginning of our lives and our careers, it has been very clear that we will carve our own paths. My brother thinks very differently. We have different political ideologies, we look at cinema differently...”
Further, when he was asked why he doesn’t speak on his brother’s behalf, he told the portal, “When I was shooting for Gangs of Wasseypur, the news came out that Arbaaz Khan will direct Dabangg 2. I immediately reacted on Twitter. I was very upset. My brother called me and asked me to delete all the tweets. I deleted all the tweets because my brother said ‘I have chosen not to do Dabangg 2 and you can’t do this, and never interfere with my business’.”
In June, Kashyap had put out a statement clearing the air of his controversy with his brother. His statement had then read, “For the media calling me and people who want to ask, treat this as my statement. ‘More than two years ago, Abhinav had told me clearly to stay out of his business and it’s not my place to comment on anything he says or does.’ Thank You.”
“My brother is his own person, he has his own voice, and I have been categorically told by him, ‘do not interfere in my business’. Me and my brother don’t agree with each other’s politics. That’s the amazing thing that this government has achieved -- brothers don’t talk to each other, friends will fight. They have managed to break apart so many things,” he concluded.
