Anurag Kashyap says India does not empower cinema

The Bad Cop actor while pointing out at the absence of support system to finance filmmakers opined, “There was a film body that was supporting people like Shyam Benegal and Govind Nihalani, but now, even the subsidies with which certain states lure filmmakers take up to eight years to arrive. A lot of it is just pretence. You should some day talk to Christopher Nolan’s team about the problems they went through when they were trying to shoot Tenet in India. You’ll be shocked how he was treated. His equipment was held by customs. There are thousands of stories. Let’s stop bulls****ing ourselves that there is a system that empowers cinema.”
