Anurag, commenting on needless demands of actors and 50-60% of production costs as star salaries, observed, “Jab aap film banate ho, toh film banane se jyada kharcha faltu cheezon mein jaata hai. Actors ki fees se dikkat nahin kyunki wo market dictate karti hai. Mai jaisi filmein banata hu mai limit mein rehta hu, kain baar mai apni fees forfeit bhi kar deta hu. Maine life mein 60% se jyada filmon mein zero fees pe kaam kiya hai.”

He further said, “Biggest example is Gangs of Wasseypur. My fees was zero because I didn’t want to replace actors with big stars. Mai bade actors ke saath kaam nahin karta, lekin sabse jyada cost conscious industry mein humare teen bade stars hai- Shah Rukh, Salman aur Aamir, teeno fees nahi lete film mein. Wo har film backend lete hai. Unki koi film costly nahin hoti.”
