Anurag Kashyap, who’s awaiting the discharge of his dark-drama Kennedy has stated that Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 didn’t have any propaganda.
Anurag Kashyap Hails Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2: Anurag Kashyap by no means shies away from calling a spade a spade. The filmmaker turned actor is at present receiving accolades for taking part in the antagonist in Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer neo-noir actioner Haddi. The filmmaker not too long ago lauded Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 and Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2. Anurag acknowledged that regardless of of being mainstream movies, each movies didn’t have any propaganda. For the unversed, Naseeruddin Shah had not too long ago named Gadar 2 amongst movies like The Kashmir Recordsdata and The Kerala Story which are jingoist. The veteran actor had stated that he was disturbed as a result of rising recognition of such films.
ANURAG KASHYAP SAYS GADAR 2 DID NOT HAVE ANY PROPAGANDA OR COUNTER-PROPAGANDA
Anurag, in an interplay with Bollywood Bubble stated, “Sabse badi baat agar main kahu aaj ki date mein toh iss samay sabse badi filmein jo cinema hall mein chal rahi hain, Gadar 2 aur Oh My God, kitni aasani se filmmaker, jo bolte hain iss samay ye mood hai desh ka, film ko propaganda aur counter-propaganda bana sakte the. Lekin wo mainstream ke andar responsible filmmaking hai. Kahin koi halla nahi hua, kahin koi aawaz nahi uthi, unnecessary controversy nahi hui. Filmein thi achhi jin logo ke liye thi. Filmmaker apne personal fayde ke liye opportunist jaise bahar nahi aaya,” (The most important factor right now I’d say is that the largest movies in cinema halls right now, Gadar 2 and OMG 2, their filmmakers may’ve gauged the nation’s temper and turned them into propaganda and counter-propaganda movies. However they’re accountable filmmaking inside the ambit of mainstream. There was no pointless noise, no voice raised, no pointless controversy. They have been good movies for the audiences they have been made for. The filmmaker didn’t unleash the opportunist inside).”
The filmmaker is at present awaiting the discharge of his dark-drama Kennedy which obtained a seven-minute standing ovation at Cannes Worldwide Movie Pageant 2023.
