However, Anurag Kashyap had said in an interview that the success of Nagraj Manjule’s ‘Sairat’ destroyed Marathi cinema since everyone wanted to emulate the film to make money. Further he added in the interview with Galatta Plus that however successful a film is, if one tries to emulate a film like say, ‘KGF 2‘, then you start heading towards disaster. Films like ‘Kantara’ and ‘Pushpa’ give one courage to go out there and tell stories, the filmmaker had said.
Hence, many users responded to Vivek’s tweet and told him that Anurag has been misquoted. But now, Kashyap decided to respond to Vivek’s tweet. He wrote, “Sir aapki galti nahin hai, aap ki filmon ki research bhi aisi hi hoti hai jaise aapki mere conversations pe tweet hai. Aapka aur aapki media ka bhi same haal hai. Koi nahin next time thoda serious research kar lena.”

Meanwhile, Vivek has posted a picture of the ‘mahurat’ of his next film, ‘The Vaccine War’ which he has begun in Lucknow.
We live for new things. New happiness. New laughters. New challenges. Yet, we feel comfortable in the old & established and stick to it. This contradiction gives suffering.
Fastest and surest way to find happiness: Jump into uncertainty.
