My opinion will not solve Padmavati issue: Anurag Kashyap

When asked for his opinion on the issue, the filmmaker said that consistently talking about the issue is creating an atmosphere of fear

Published: 02nd December 2017

Filmmaker-actor Anurag Kashyap, who is vocal about the right to freedom of speech and expression, says his opinion will not provide a solution to the problems faced by the team of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati.

During the trailer launch of his upcoming film Mukkabaaz, he was asked about his opinion on Padmavati, which is being slammed for "distorting historical facts" about the Rajput queen.

"My opinion will not solve the issue. I do not think anything about this issue. In fact, I wonder why the media is thinking about it," Anurag said, adding, "I think media is the most irresponsible community right now. Why are they asking the same question to all of us and collecting our opinion on the same? Has it solved the issue? In a way, constant talk on the topic is creating more fear in our mind."

He went to say, "Fear is something those groups (referring to Karni Sena and others) are trying to create. By asking the question, media did not solve the issue but paid attention to some regional groups. They are taking advantage of it."

As a filmmaker, the Udta Punjab co-producer has often locked horns with the Central Board of Film Certification.
