Anurag Kashyap: “I am the nation’s most nepotistic filmmaker”

Anurag Kashyap claims to be the most nepotistic Indian director and claims that in order to collaborate on a project, he must know the right people. The actor Taapsee Pannu attended the interview where Anurag discussed nepotism.

Anurag is eagerly anticipating the debut of his upcoming film, Dobaaraa. The movie is an authorised Hindi translation of the 2018 Spanish film Mirage. The movie, which also features Pavail Gulati, Rahul Bhat, and Saswata Chatterjee, was written by Nihit Bhave.

In an interview with News 18, Anurag claimed, “I am the most nepotistic filmmaker in the nation. Nepotism: what is it? Okay, fine, my daughter isn’t in the movies, but I still won’t employ a stranger.

It’s not even favouritism; it’s not even a camp. I must get to know my clan because I believe in them. I have to be completely confident in the people I hire because I place a lot of trust in them.

Who do you most trust during (troubled) times, he continued? Actually, anyone will trust their family, so to me, my set resembles their family. Nepotism does exist, as evidenced by the fact that I hire people through my connections (ek ke through hi dusra aata hai). Nepotism in that case. If my first assistant director (AD) were to depart, I wouldn’t be aware of any suitable replacements in the market.

I’ll get another good AD from my AD. He will provide me with a replacement if my production designer leaves.

Taapsee is “super nepotistic,” Anurag added in jest, and she has been attempting to launch her sister Shagun Pannu with KRK (actor Kamaal Rashid Khan). Adding that Shagun has stopped visiting Dubai since hearing the news because she is afraid, Taapsee burst out laughing.

Dobaaraa brings Taapsee and Anurag together once more. On the romantic drama Manmarziyaan, which also starred Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan, they first collaborated four years ago. Anurag’s debut sci-fi movie and first remake are both titled Dobaara.

Dobaaraa is co-produced by Sunir Kheterpal and Gaurav Bose’s production company Athena and Ekta Kapoor’s Cult Movies, a new division under Balaji Telefilms.

Cannes 2024: All We Imagine As Light by Payal Kapadia creates history and receives an eight-minute standing ovation

At its world premiere on Thursday at the film festival, Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine As Light—the first Indian film in the Cannes competition in thirty years—made quite a stir and impressed viewers around the globe.

The film received one of the longest standing ovations of this year’s film festival, lasting eight minutes, after its premiere.

All We Imagine As Light dominating critics
The picture scripted history at the festival and puts Payal in the running for the coveted Palme d’Or. In addition to being the first Indian production in the competition in thirty years, Deadline claims that Payal is the first female Indian director to have a film screened in the Cannes competition.

“India produces a great deal of excellent films. Not only does each state have its own film industry, led by incredibly talented directors, but not only Bollywood. Payal expressed her excitement and happiness that her picture was chosen to Deadline. “I hope that after this we won’t have to wait another 30 years,” she said. We weren’t prepared for it, and it’s an honour because there are so many directors in the category who I find truly inspiring.

This year, Payal faces off against Jacques Audiard, Yorgos Lanthimos, Paul Schrader, David Cronenberg, and Jia Zhangke.

Dancing their path to success
The movie’s cast and crew were beaming on the red carpet prior to leaving for the premiere.

On the Palais stairs, the entire team exuded joy and even danced their way up to the theatre. On the red carpet, the cast was all smiles, making a lot of funny poses and grabbing everyone’s attention.

Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon are among the actors in the movie.

Payal feels honoured that she has the opportunity to create history at the film festival and demonstrate to the world that Indian cinema is much more diverse than Bollywood.

preliminary evaluations
After the screening, the movie is receiving excellent reviews. According to Sophie Monk-Kaufman of IndieWire, “This casual everyday vignette is brimming with a sensuality (the rain, the clothes, the food, the women) that people don’t tend to notice when caught up in the rhythm of life,” the film is “gorgeous and absorbing,” according to one review. Realising just how complete these moments are requires a snapshot taken by an outside photographer.

Variety referred to it as a “glowing portrait of urban connection and unexpected sisterhood,” while The Guardian described it as a “dreamlike and gentle modern Mumbai tale that is a triumph.”

A nurse named Prabha (played by Kani Kusruti) receives an unexpected present from her long-estranged husband in the Indo-French film All We Imagine As Light. Meanwhile, Anu, her flatmate and younger companion (played by Divya Prabha), is searching for a peaceful place to spend time with her partner. At that point, the two women make the decision to drive to a beach resort where they can freely pursue their aspirations.

Payal makes her feature debut in the movie. A Night of Knowing Nothing, the documentary she did before, won the Golden Eye prize at the Cannes film festival a few years ago.
