Rishi Kapoor is not one to censor his words. Popularly known to be as opinionated as humanly possible, he recently slammed filmmakers, Anurag Basu and Anurag Kashyap- for delivering the biggest flops of his son, Ranbir Kapoor’s career.
In a recent episode of Neha Dhupia’s podcast, the host played a game with Rishi, which required him to talk for one minute about a subject she’d provide. And, interestingly so, the subject was, 'Anurag'. Instead of sticking to just one Anurag, the actor chose to blast both Anurag’s on the show. Here’s what he said:
“Anurag? There is Anurag Kashyap, who made Bombay Velvet, but he made a better film in Gangs Of Wasseypur, I couldn’t understand head or tail of Bombay Velvet. And then there was Basu who made Barfi an outstanding film. I am so happy he took my son for it. My son got great recognition for the film and then he made this Gajja Jasoos..what Jagga Jasoos whatever.. which he made a total mess of. It was as messy as my pronunciation was. He probably got indulged too much. I guess both the Anurags got indulged in their films. You know when they are good enough to work on certain budget and suddenly they are given huge budgets in hand so bandar ke haath mein khilona nahin aa jaata hai, he goes absolutely berserk. So I think that’s what actually happened with both these guys. They were given budgets they could not handle and I guess it happens. It happens with every director, every actor you can’t have a hundred percent record anyway…So it happens.”
The actor seems to be having a tough time considering his film, Patel Ki Punjabi didn’t fare too well at the box office, followed by the fire at RK studios. We aren’t sure if that’s the reason for his break-out, but if it is, we wonder who’s next!
