Anurag's message for ‘random people’ who want to meet him

He wrote, "I wasted a lot of time trying to help newcomers and mostly ended up up with mediocre s**t. So now onwards I don't want to waste my time with meeting random people who think they're creative geniuses. So I will now have rates."

The filmmaker added, "If someone wants to meet me for 10-15 minutes I will charge 1 lac, for half hour 2 lacs and for 1 hour 5 lacs. That's the rate. I am tired of wasting time meeting people. If you really think you can afford it, call me or stay the f**k away. And all paid in advance (folded hands emoji)."

I agree with the first part but then maybe don't meet anyone.. let destiny make, you meet your collaborators accidentally?" Kubbra Sait said, "Amen!!!!!!!!! (Fire emojis)."
