When Tisca ended up 'misusing' Anurag Kashyap
The filmmaker starred in Tisca's short film Churri which premieres at the Mumbai Film Festival this month
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who has also acted in feature films like Akira, says he chose to star in the short film Churri because of actress Tisca Chopra. But she ended up "misusing" him.
Four short films are set to premiere at the 19th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival this month--Anukul by Sujoy Ghosh, Death of a Father by Chaitanya Tamhane, Churri by Mansi Nirmal Jain and Juice by Neeraj Ghaywan.
"I did Churri only because Tisca asked me to. Also because I am a big fan of Chutney (her short film). I like what she is trying to do in the short film space and I told her to use me, but she ended up misusing me," Anurag said in a statement.
Talking about the short film space, the Dev D director said, "Short films are the future and that space is getting super competitive. A lot of future artistes will be known for what they do in that space."
Churri features the story of a couple where the philandering husband has an affair outside of his marriage, and when the wife confronts the mistress, an unusual and surprising twist transpires.
