Does Anurag Kashyap cheat his producers?

It is him who has been proclaiming this from every available forum. A few years back while imparting valuable and treasure-worthy gyan to a film festival crowd he disclosed this important guru-mantra. He repeated the same thing again in one of the sessions on the second day of FICCI Frames 2012 that was also addressed by the other 'new-age' star directors of Bollywood Imtiaz Ali, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Amol Gupte.

Kashyap's modus-operandi is very simple. He tells his producers the story that they like and goes ahead and makes the film he likes. This probably was the reason Kumar Mangat, the producer of NO SMOKING, believed the film was against the lethal cancer-causing habit. It finally turned out to be Kashyap's existential magnum opus, incomprehensible and intractable even by a learned film reviewer like the late Nikhat Kazmi. And probably this could be the reason the ace director has not been able to get around Aamir Khan who tends to leave nothing to chance while doing a film and has the meticulous habit of interviewing and hand-picking even his production crew.

Some years back Kashyap had prematurely announced that Aamir would do his Danny Boyle produced film BOMBAY VELVET. It did not happen and the film, according to reports, is finally being made with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. One wonders if Kashyap has some surprises in store for Mr. Boyle too.
