Directed by Anurag Kashyap The budget and earnings of the films have been disclosed. Talking about how the film’s budget is spent on “content”, Anurag Kashyap said People of cinema, “They don’t spend money on film. People need to get back to this whole reality check. One thing people need to understand is that when we make a film, we are working, we are creating something. This is not a holiday, not a picnic. It doesn’t cost that much money to make a movie. It goes to charity; It goes into the area. You’re shooting in the middle of the jungle, but a car will be sent three hours into town specifically to get you that five-star burger you crave. Don’t fall into this process.”

Anurag Kashyap He also said that independent thoughts are not getting support. He added, “In the mainstream, independent ideas work more. But the thing is they don’t get support. Today you go to any actor, any star. They want to make sure whether it (the project) is a big project, whether it will hit or not, whether it will be a business or not. They think ‘the script is good but what can we do that will generate more revenue’. If the script is good, they should do it. Everyone starts thinking about what will happen after the release of the movie. But no one goes by instinct. We are all so caught up in this. And social media is the biggest culprit in that.”

The Gangs of Wasseypur Director He added, “The film business has taken over everyone. Everyone is talking about the box office numbers. And when people make more money today than they did 20 years ago, they feel short-changed. When I was working as a writer, my fee for an entire film was less than what a first AD gets a month today. But I can’t make a film like the one I made today Gulal, Raman Raghav 2.0 And the uglythe reason is politics as well as budget.”

Anurag Kashyap also shared an example from his 2018 series Holy game. He said, “I can’t budget a film at that cost today, because when OTT came, a lot of things went wrong. For example, I’ve never seen as many vanity vans on my set as I did in the Sacred Games. This is how culture began. Then we cannot reverse it. Finally, the people who were completely ignored, the technical staff, who work the longest on the film, started getting paid. They come first, they go last. The actor comes, shoots and leaves. But people who were underpaid started getting paid in a fair way. But a lot of extra stuff started coming in.”

He said, “You can’t leave now. Reversing will now cause a lot of gap. It will take a long time. Actors have to revise their prices. Now even OTTs have realized this. Everyone wants to cut costs now. What has happened is, initially everyone increased the cost, but now they want to reduce it.”
