Meanwhile, in 2018, Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap had expressed his wish to visit and work in Pakistan. “I would love to film in Pakistan.

I have friends who have visited Pakistan and they tell me how badly they want to go again,” said Anurag Kashyap in his interview.


Kashyap’s criticism of Modi

Anurag Kashyap has been a vocal critic of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) bill. He hit out at Prime Minister, Narendra Modi directly for introducing the controversial bill.

Back in 2020, the director recently took to Twitter in Hindi, demanding the PM to reveal his birth certificate and that of his father before asking the citizens for their documents.

“Today CAA has been enforced. Tell Modi to first show his papers, his degree in ‘entire political science’ as well as his father’s and family’s birth certificate to the entire nation. Then ask for our papers,” said Anurag Kashyap.

In another tweet, Kashyap went on to call the government “dumb” for its actions while also comparing CAA to demonetization.

“This government can get into a dialogue if they know how to talk. They can not face a single question that’s not been vetted, they don’t have a plan, they haven’t put out a system. This is a dumb government,” said Kashyap boldly.

“There CAA is like demonetization. No plan. No vision. Just bullying.” concluded the director.
