Anurag is yet again making headlines, but this time with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Anurag Kashyap discussed Sanjay Leela Bhansali's opinion on his 2009 movie Dev D in detail and explained why he detested it. The classic Bengali novel ‘Devdas’ by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, which Sanjay had previously adapted for the big screen in 2002, was updated in Anurag's Abhay Deol-starring film.
Anurag Kashyap reveals Sanjay Leela Bhansali “hated” Dev D; claims SLB said, “You have ruined Chandramukhi and Paro”
In a recent conversation with Unfiltered by Samdish, Anurag responded to the query of what Sanjay thought of Dev D, he said, “He (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) hated it. He said you have ruined Chandramukhi and Paro. He didn't say it to me, he said it to Vikram (Vikramaditya Motwane), who was his assistant and a co-writer on Dev D... Bhansali is a genius. When it comes to music, choreography, he is just a freaking genius. And now, he has also discovered violence. In Gangubai (Alia Bhatt's 2022 film Gangubai Kathiawadi) he showed violence. I was so happy about it, I went and told him 'tu apne limitations se bahar nikla (you are now coming out of your limitations).”
Anurag continued by describing how Sanjay had been angered by a magazine article he had once written about the film Black (2005). When asked about Black, he said, “I didn't. I didn't believe it. And I wrote about it, why I didn't believe it, which upset him (Sanjay) a lot. That writing was not supposed to be for publication as that was personal to him. Ab wapis hum dost ho gaye hain. Woh ice wapas break ho gaya, mujhe karna pada khud jaa ke (we are friends again after I went and broke the ice with him)... He (Anurag) is a very reserved person, he is also very awkward in public. I keep telling him he needs to let go of that... He takes a lot of time to trust someone. He also deals with his own trauma. He has very closely seen the film industry as a kid, and that he hated.”
On the work front, Anurag Kashyap’s Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat recently released, starring Vicky Kaushal, Alaya F, and Karan Mehta.
