Anurag Kashyap is a straight talker; he is honest to a fault, in the true sense of the term. He speaks from his heart and does not care about being politically correct or diplomatic. Kashyap has been in a tirade of sorts with the Censor Board of India since the time he made his film ‘Ugly’.
According to Kashyap, the anti smoking disclaimer in every scene spoils the film and is fighting for his film’s release without a disclaimer. He has filed a PIL in Bombay High Court and is fighting his battle.
To add to his misery, a senior cancer surgeon of Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH), Dr Pankaj Chaturvedi replied to his arguments. The Doctor has ardently supported the need of a disclaimer and has written about how many cases of cancer he has treated at his hospital because of smoking and about his utter dismay at someone wanting to avoid this entire drill.
When the news reached Kashyap, silencing him was beyond the power of the common man, furious and upset, Kashyap lashed out saying, “A person who makes patients sign a form before surgery, saying the doctor is not responsible, wants to hold my film responsible for the social ill of smoking and make it my responsibility. That’s an irony. I don’t want to respond to people who don’t know what my fight is about and talk through their a**.”
Oops! Steer clear of Kashyap, we say!
