It's been a year after Anurag Kashyap indirectly attacked Arbaaz Khan on Twitter after Salman allegedly sacked his director-brother Abhinav as director of the sequel to 'Dabangg'. Though the tension with Salman and co. has improved with time, it seems that Anurag has not changed his stance. He now says he doesn't care about any of the Khans.
"I don’t need to sign a Khan to for my film," states the director. Anurag was speaking during the launch of an innovative concept of short filmmaking with filmmaker Sudhir Mishra and Chakri Tolet for Largeshortfilms.com.
With this website, filmmakers will be able make short films that can be viewed on mobile phones. "It is going to be the future. What's more? I won't be needing a Khan to do this film," Anurag says sarcastically.
Explaining the concept further Kashyap says, “The films will also have theatrical promos, music release and a premiere. Short films are the purest form of filmmaking. They are the most difficult to make as they are purely cinematic and have to be encapsulated in a time limit. “
Director Sudhir Mishra adds “I am finding it difficult to script a short film because you have to tell a story in a moment. But the future is going to be short films.”
The directors have planned to sign 12 film directors from different states to make a complete feature film. “These film makers will be chosen on the basis of the process of their short films and will be given a responsibility. They will choose the concept. However, we have already chosen the first filmmaker who will start the film and will pass it on to the next filmmaker. It will go on and they will put all the 12 short films together to make a feature film,” adds Kashyap.
Anurag Kashyap however is confident that this project will not misfire. “Most of our films begin somewhere and end somewhere. It’s going to be challenging and exciting. I am going to make a short film too but it will not be one of the 12 films. It will be a larger short film."
When quizzed if Kalki would be a part of the project he smiles and says “I don’t know I am writing the script now let me complete it."
Asked if the films will have content and dialogue like Gangs of Wasseypur and Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum, the director said, “Who will decide the censorship? The audience is its own censor. If they don’t like certain things they can walk out or stop watching it. As a filmmaker I feel good when our morality is shaken,” he ends.
