Anurag Kashyap Takes A DIG At Vivek Agnihotri's The Kashmir Files; Says, ‘Aap Ki Filmon Ki Research Aisi Hi Hoti Hai’
Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is one of the most straight-forward celebrities as he never minces his words while expressing himself. In a recent interview he had opened up about how remaking superhit south films is ruing Bollywood. Well, on Tuesday, Vivek Agnihotri had taken to Twitter to express his disagreement on the filmmaker’s views. Now, he has taken a dig at the latter’s movies and bashed him for his tweet.

The 50-year-old director replied to Vivek’s “I totally totally totally disagree with the views of Bollywood’s one & only Milord. Do you agree?” tweet, by implying that he should have read and understood the article better before expressing his views on social media. Anurag wrote, “Sir aapki galti nahin hai, aap ki filmon ki research bhi aisi hi hoti hai jaise aapki mere conversations pe tweet hai. Aapka aur aapki media ka bhi same haal hai. Koi nahin next time thoda serious research kar lena ..” ALSO READ: Vivek Agnihotri Strongly Disagrees With Anurag Kashyap's 'Kantara And Pushpa Are Ruining The Industry’ Statement; Calls Him, 'Bollywood's One And Only Milord'

For the unversed, the social media spat was sparked, when Anurag expressed that filmmakers wanting to emulate superhit movies like Kantara, Pushpa, KGF 2 and Sairat, rather than working on original content are destroying Bollywood. He had said, “Films like Kantara and Pushpa give you courage to go out and tell your stories. But KGF 2, however big the success, when you try and emulate that and set a project up, that’s when you start heading towards disaster. That’s the bandwagon that Bollywood destroyed itself on. You have to find films that give you courage.” ALSO READ: SHOCKING!

Talking at the Mega Roundtable 2022 hosted by Galatta Plus, he had also said, “I was talking to Nagraj and I told him Sairat destroyed Marathi cinema; the success of Sairat. Because suddenly people realised there is a possibility to make so much money so they stopped making those films (which they were making earlier). Everybody wanted to emulate Sairat.”

On the work front, Anurag Kashyap’s recently released film Dobaaraa starring Taapsee Pannu received mixed reviews from the audience and critics.
