Anurag Kashyap on Sandeep Reddy Vanga: He is an honest man; I love talking to him

Anurag Kashyap opened up recently about Sandeep Reddy Vanga and said that he is an honest man. He said that he loved talking to him. The director also reflected on the toxicity present in Bollywood.

In an Interview with Zoom TV, he said, “I like the guy (Sandeep). I have no problem with him. Unlike a lot of people in the industry who pretend to be someone they are not, he is honest. The former kind, I think, is even more toxic. But Vanga is an honest man. I don’t like anything more than honesty, no matter what others’ issues with honesty are. I love talking to him.”

He also recently appeared on the podcast of his daughter Aaliyah Kashyap where he revealed how he was cancelled after the release of Dev D (2009) and called a misogynist. She also asked him why he decided to meet Sandeep in the middle of all the criticism. He said, “I met him and I liked him. I have had questions of my own and I wanted to talk to him about Animal and I invited him and had a long five-hour conversation.”

He added, “I always believe in talking to people. I was cancelled after Dev D by a lot of people for making a 'misogynistic' film. I have often seen people isolating someone, attacking someone and that is not the way to be.”

Anurag will be seen next playing the role of a gangster in the crime-thriller series Bad Cop. It is directed by Aditya Datt and also stars Gulshan Devaiah, Saurabh Sachdeva and Harleen Sethi in pivotal roles.
