Can’t make films like ‘Sultan’, ‘Dishoom’: Anurag Kashyap

Mumbai, June 4 (IANS) Director Anurag Kashyap says that he considers all his films commercial but cannot make films such as “Sultan” and “Dishoom”, though he liked their trailers.

At the launch of the song “Qatl-E-Aam” from his upcoming film “Raman Raghav 2.0”, Anurag was asked if he liked the trailer of superstar Salman Khan’s “Sultan”.

“I saw the trailer and in every trailer you enjoy it. I even enjoyed ‘Dishoom’ a lot, but the problem with me is that I can’t make them,” he said.

The trailers of “Sultan” and Varun Dhawan, John Abraham starrer “Dishoom” were launched recently and have already registered views in millions.

The films can be called masala entertainers, while Anurag is known for his realistic films such as “Black Friday” and his other films, too, like “Gangs of Wasseypur” have a different style and can’t perhaps be termed masalaa films.

His last film “Bombay Velvet” had a massive budget but it failed at the box office. Considering the failure, is there a bigger pressure on him to deliver with “Raman Raghav 2.0”.

“That happens with every film. We want every film to work well. But with ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ there is not that much pressure as was in the previous film. Our last film (‘Bombay Velvet’) was Titanic. This film is our boat,” Anurag said.

Would he like to make a commercial film like “Bombay Velvet” again?

“All films are commercial for me. Whenever I make films, I think in commercial terms.”

Anurag usually shoots in real locations but for “Bombay Velvet” he had to shoot on sets. About going back to real locations and going back to his genre with “Raman Raghav 2.0”, he said, “I have never gone out of my genre. I have always made films that I always wanted to make. Regarding locations, our focus is whenever we get anything, we maximise it.”

“Raman Raghav 2.0” stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles.
