Bollywood Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap recently talked about the negativity spread in Bollywood. During this, he told that there was a time when he wanted to quit filmmaking. The director also revealed that he had received offers to make films from the Tamil and Malayalam cinema industries. But because he was not familiar with those languages. For this reason, he did not make films in other languages.
In a recent interview to News18, Anurag revealed that he was affected by the negativity spreading in the industry. He even almost thought of giving up filmmaking. In fact, during the conversation, when Anurag was asked whether he has thought of leaving film making due to the negativity spreading inside the industry in the past years?
On this he said- For a year or two, the negativity in the industry had a deep impact on me. This negativity dominated my film making. I was badly affected by it for about 2 years. I was really thinking about doing something else.
Anurag further said- My friends from South offered me to make films in Tamil. My Kerala friends asked me to make Malayalam films. I got offers to make German and French films. But I don’t know these languages, so how would I be able to create them in the first place? All these things happened and I thought that I should get out of the industry.
Anurag told that even though he was troubled by the negativity spread about the industry, he did not quit. He said- I am happy that I decided to stay in the industry. Somewhere this negativity has ended now. It doesn’t affect me anymore. I don’t need to justify myself for anything. I just want to keep making films. I am writing and I have a lot more to write.
