A lot has been said and done about BOMBAY VELVET. Karan Johar has made ‘Velvet' jokes, the media has reported some biggest disappointments with regard to the movie and now even the director Anurag Kashyap has spoken up and taken the blame on himself.
At the very recently held RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 trailer launch, the director said, “When a film fails, it is 100% the director's fault. If BOMBAY VELVET didn't work, it is entirely my fault. The director is the only one who has the power to say no. A lot of the places where I should've taken a stand, I didn't. So the mistake is mine. When a film is good, it's everybody's contribution.”
He explained, “What happens is, when you are making a film, you start it out and midway the process kind of changes. You forget why in the first place you wanted to make the film. A lot of the times we need to put our foot down and say ‘no, this doesn't go with the film'. We give into a lot of pressure, we go on a back foot.”
When asked if budget of the movie was an issue, Kashyap said, “When a film's budget becomes so huge that it is beyond your control, the pressure is so much that you go on the back foot. And that is the biggest mistake. However big a bowler is, (Virat) Kohli has to go in front and play. When you go backwards you hit the wicket.”
Just to set the mood right, when asked Kashyap if he has bounced back with RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 and the director said, “I've never left. I'm the same.”
