After putting out a series of tweets where he expressed his concern about the actress being “used”, he also expressed made it clear that he was done with the many nasty tweets and jibes coming in from the handle allegedly operated by Kangana’s team. Kashyap also went on to admit that while there may have been a time when the actress was a “good friend”, he said that he didn’t recognise this new version of her.
His tweets got him some flak from fellow Bollywood actor Ranvir Shorey who, without taking names, dubbed certain “independent-film-crusaders turned mainstream-Bollywood-flunkies” as “hypocrites”. What followed next was a twitter debate between the two men.
In the middle of all the discussion, a Twitter user replied to Anurag’s tweet and said, “@anuragkashyap72 is the best example and puppet of Bollywood Gang Mafia. Bhai roti chalani hai to chatna jaruri hai.”
Not one to let the person have the last word, Kashyap replied in Hindi stating that he didn’t have any of the big Bollywood production houses backing his films. He said that he had to build his own production company and that ‘Queen’ was created when Kangana didn’t have work. He also went on to share that he introduced Anand Rai to financers to help them complete their hit film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’.
“मेरी रोटी Bollywood से नहीं चलती । मेरी फ़िल्म produce करने कोई Dharma, Excel या YRF या कोई studio नहीं आता । खुद नयी company बनानी पड़ती है और खुद बनाता हूँ। कंगना के पास जब कोई काम नहीं था तब Queen बनायीं थी। तनु weds मनु जब अटक गयी थी उसे खतम करने के लिए मैंने आनंद राय को मदद की थी और financiers से मिलाया था । चाहे तो पूछ सकते हैं। मैं नाम ले कर बोल रहा हूँ और बोलूँगा जो सच है।”

“ I’m speaking by name and I’ll say what’s true,” he concluded.
