Anurag Kashyap expressed his concerns about working with Shah Rukh Khan. In his most recent film, Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat, he also discusses how he lost money.

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap recently opened up about why he has never collaborated with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. He attributed this to the overwhelming influence and expectations of the fanbases that major stars command. Kashyap explained that working with such high-profile actors can be challenging due to the immense pressure and scrutiny from their dedicated followers.

In an interview with Humans of Cinema, Kashyap was asked why he had not worked with King Khan despite having huge admiration for the superstar. He said, “My favorite Shah Rukh Khan film is Chak De India. Also Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. In his beginning stage, SRK worked with everybody. But it is impossible to make a film with Shah Rukh Khan now. I aspired it once and I like him a lot, but I am very scared of fans now. In this day and age of social media, I am terrified by the fanbases big stars have. Actors get typecast because of fans, and the fans want the same things from them again and again. If that doesn’t happen fans reject it, so even actors get apprehensive about trying new things.”

The filmmaker added, “Hence I am scared because I will make the film I want to and not just cater to the fans. The repercussions or consequences of what happens then can cost you a lot. So it’s not in my capacity to cater to SRK’s aura or enigma. If his film Fan would have worked, I could have said that I too have the courage to work with him.”

Anurag also discussed the film, which turned out to be the biggest failure of his life. He said,

“The biggest disaster of my life is Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat, I lost all my money also. Everybody thought it was foolhardy to do that, but at least I got to do my thing. That failure I can own. I take total ownership of that. It is more satisfying because I have no regrets.”

Kashyap also discussed the cancel culture, saying that he has become accustomed to the concept.
