Talented director director Anurag Kashyap has come a long way since his first film ‘Black Friday’ in 2004. In his films, audiences usually witness new faces as he rarely cast big names. Ahead of the release of his next movie Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat, Kashyap opened up on why he prefers newcomers over established actors in his films.
Without twisting around, Anurag said that he doesn’t give a chance to newcomers. Instead he uses them so that he can make the film his way. The controversial writer said that newcomers are more responsible because when actors become big they want their films to be huge hits and blockbusters. Even if they love the script, they only think if the film will be a hit or not. But they should not bother about the opening collection. Anurag stated that stars who are dependent on hit films are not actors.
Talking about his project Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat, Anurag quoted, “It talks about love in times of hate. There’s a podcast in the film with two different stories. I feel love has the power to bring revolution. All we need at these times is love and acceptance of each other. And this movie shows how different we are from each other.”
For the unknown, Anurag Kashyap has introduced Vicky Kaushal to Bollywood. The actor debuted with Masaan which was produced by Anurag. He later revealed regretting not taking up the direction of the film.
Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap is coming up next with his first rom-com, Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat. It features two newcomers Alaya F and Karan Mehta. The movie which is set to release on February 3 revolves around two youngsters finding love against all odds. It sheds light on pre-existing societal conditions on homosexuality, age differences, etc.
