Filmmakers should not be expected to deliver a message through Movies: Anurag Kashyap

Vastavam web: Films loaded with social message may be the trend in the industry but Anurag Kashyap believes filmmakers should not be expected to deliver a message through their movies.The director, whose upcoming film “Mukkabaaz” promotes sports in its own way, said as a filmmaker his aim is never to address a social issue.”Even if a film gives a message, people clap for a moment and then forget. As a filmmaker, I don’t believe in giving a message. The only time I gave a message in my film was in ‘Black Friday’,” Kashyap said in a group interview here.

The director said “Mukkabaaz” may be a pro-sports films, but it is not an “advertisement” for boxing.The film has been given a U/A certificate by the CBFC and Kashyap yesterday praised censor board chief Prasoon Joshi for a “reasonable, rational and empowering experience”.While the CBFC was criticised for suggesting modifications in Bhansali’s “Padmavat”, including a title change, Kashyap said he believes in speaking against or for any authority, based on his “personal experiences”.”What ‘Padmavati’ went through only Bhansali knows. My personal experience has been great (this time). I have always said the CBFC is not supposed to cut the film. I still believe in that and we are heading towards it. It is going to be a long process.” Kashyap said being the head of CBFC is not an easy job and he would never want to be in that situation.
