Need more freedom for filmmaking in India: Anurag Kashyap

by Peter D. Marshall

by Times of India.

India’s rising star director Anurag Kashyap has complained that filmmakers in in the country still do not enjoy the kind of freedom of space and expression that would allow them to make meaningful films.

“Today, we are forced to treat our audience as children of less than five years and hence we have to only make goody-goody films with a huge dose of escapism. I want to have the option making films that tackle the issues of Indian society head on, rather than being obliged to refer to them in an oblique fashion,” Kashyap said at a discussion on the future of Indian cinema at the Cannes Film Festival here.

The discussion centred around the film “ Bombay Talkies“, a compilation of four films made by four directors – Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Kashyap – which was premiered here during a special screening at Cannes on Sunday evening.
