Anurag on getting called out

“My daughter (Aaliyah Kashyap) called me out. She hated Animal. On my post (picture with Sandeep), my friends called me out. They all came home and asked me 10,000 questions. And I was like, tum baki sab toh chhod do, picture ka naam kya hai? Animal. It's not called ‘Human.’ Why did the film become difficult? Because everyone's favourite Ranbir Kapoor played the role. And he did it with all conviction. He decided to play the character instead of being politically correct or diplomatically correct or correct for a certain section of things. He went all out to play a person who is problematic all the way," Anurag said.

“I know so many people in this industry and in this world who you'd think are right when viewed from the outside. But they're not, they're posturing. So many of people who call themselves feminists, 50% of them are posturing. I know so many people, who've written stories, broken stories, they're so complicated. I have their messages with me which are so complicated. I'd rather deal with a complicated but an honest person. Whoever they are, you don't have to second-guess yourself. People like to attack these kind of persons. I've been attacked myself,” Anurag added.

Anurag drew flak from certain section of the internet for sharing a picture with Sandeep, praising Animal, and defending him from the criticism. Anurag's friends and longtime collaborators Neeraj Ghaywan and Varun Grover called him out in the comment section.

Anurag will be next seen as a villain in Disney+ Hotstar series Bad Cop. He's gearing up for the release of his directorial Kennedy, starring Sunny Leone and Rahul Bhat.
