Vastavam web: On the surface, Anurag Kashyap and Shah Rukh Khan may belong to different cinematic universes but the filmmaker vows not to leave Bollywood until he works with the superstar.In his career of more than two decades, Kashyap several times came close to working with Shah Rukh, who also happens to be his Delhi University senior.”He wanted to do ‘No Smoking’ and he was very upset when I went away from him. I also went to him with ‘Allwyn Kalicharan.’ I wanted to do that with him and a big superstar from Hollywood. Everything was almost done but then again (it didn’t happen).
“But we will work together. I won’t go anywhere without making a film with Shah Rukh Khan… I will write a film that will lure him. He should be attracted to it, he should be dying do the film,” he said.Kashyap, who over the years has earned the image of a rebel in Bollywood, said he can fight with anyone but Shah Rukh.”He is the only guy I can never speak upto. I can fight with the world but not him. If he scolds me, I’ll sit in a corner and cry. He is someone I have this love for. I love him to death,” he said.The 45-year-old filmmaker was speaking on the sidelines of ‘India and the world – The Changing Narrative’ film festival conceptualised by writer Anuraadha Tewari, held at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, here.Kashyap, who is a regular at various Indian and international film festivals, said movie fests “saved” him.
