During a conversation on a podcast Flip the Script with Shubra, Anurag said, “Because I’ve made Gangs of Wasseypur and Raman Raghav, people think I’m a psychopath. People are initially very scared of meeting me. And when they meet me, they get totally overwhelmed because I’m completely opposite of their perception. I can’t change that. A lot of people think that I smoke up. Often, when I get trolled, people call me ‘ganjedi’ and ‘nashedi’. But I just roll my cigarettes; they don’t even know I’m allergic to it. I get serious asthma attacks even if I smell somebody smoking pot around me.”

Recalling a fan story from the Toronto International Film Festival, the director said, “I was in Toronto for the festival, and somebody came and said, ‘I’ve got a nice gift for you’. He had a wrapped bag, with flowers on it. And because I’m allergic to it, I can smell it from a distance. I said, ‘What’s in that bag’. He said, ‘Something you’d love’. I opened the bag, and he had rolled joints in it.”

He continued, “I said, ‘What’s wrong with you? Take it away from me, take the smell away’. I had to take an antihistamine immediately. It’s that bad for me. But it’s perception. I can’t change that.”

On the work front, Anurag Kashyap recently directed Sunny Leone and Rahul Bhat starrer Kennedy.
