Pahlaj Nihalani Is Intellectually Incapable Of The Position He Holds: Anurag Kashyap

Producer Anurag Kashyap is a relieved man these days after his much-controversial film Udta Punjab managed to do good business at the box office. The filmmaker, however, believes his battle with the Central Board for Films Certification (CBFC) is not yet over. In a conversation with IndianExpress.com before the release of his latest directorial venture Raman Raghav, a psychological thriller, Kashyap shared his opinion on the CBFC, his obsession for making crime-based films and his annoyance over capping of freedom of expression.
Udta Punjab opened to a good response and has done a decent business at the box office. Was this expected after the controversy?
I think we got more business than we expected. And it will be not wrong to say it’s because of the controversy. Everybody became curious about the film. At the same time, it has also lost business because of the piracy. But, nevertheless, it has done well. I am very happy about the fact that it came intact and I think that’s where my role gets over. Now, I am completely focusing on Raman Raghav because it’s my film.———————————————————————————————
