Filmmaker criticizes lavish entourage costs in Bollywood

The Chef’s ridiculous charges

Kashyap recounted his experience with an actor's personal chef who billed Rs. 2 lakh per day for meals that seemed more suited for birds. "The most ridiculous demand is that there's some chef who charges Rs.  lakh per day to make food that looks like… ye khana hai ya birdfeed. Itna chhota sa aata tha. Health ka tha thoda problem. Main sirf yehi khata hoon (Is this food or birdfeed? It used to be so small. The actor had some health issue. They claimed it's the only thing they eat)," he said.

Extravagant demands from Actors

He also shared an incident where an actor insisted that his driver be sent to a five-star hotel to fetch a specific burger. The driver had to make a six-hour round trip from a remote location, only for the burger to likely arrive cold. Kashyap criticized producers for allowing such excessive demands, stating, "It's the fault of the producers and their agents. I don't know why the producers allow it on their sets. It doesn't happen on my sets."

High costs of hair and makeup artists

The director further commented on the high fees of hair and makeup artists, who charge around Rs. 75,000 per day—significantly more than technicians. He humorously noted that he might be wealthier if he were a hair and makeup artist instead of a filmmaker.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui echoes Kashyap’s sentiments

Kashyap's longtime collaborator, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, shared similar views, criticizing the unnecessary demands of some actors. "There are many unnecessary demands that actors have, they want everything lavish. I have even heard that some actors have five vanity vans—one for gymming, one for cooking, one for eating, bathing, practicing lines, and what not. Yeh paagalpan hai. Koi paagal hi hoga jo paanch vanity van leke chalta hai (This is madness. Only someone mad can go around with 5 vanity vans)," Siddiqui said.

Upcoming projects

Anurag Kashyap will soon be seen playing a villain in the Disney+ Hotstar series Bad Cop. He is also gearing up for the release of his long-awaited film, Kennedy.
