Rishi Kapoor calls Anurag Kashyap, Anurag Basu ‘monkeys’


Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who doesn’t care anybody to speak his heart slammed filmmakers Anurag Basu and Anurag Kashyap for making a mess of Ranbi’s career and delivering biggest flops like ‘Jagga Jasoos’ and ‘Bombay Velvet’.  

In Neha Dhupia's popular podcast, No Filter Neha,when Neha played a game with the actor and asked him to speak few words about Anurag in 1 minute, Rishi Kapoor took the opportunity to vent his anger on Anurag Basu and Anurag Kashyap. He says, "Anurag? There is Anurag Kashyap, who made Bombay Velvet, but he made a better film in Gangs Of Wasseypur, I couldn’t understand head or tail of Bombay Velvet. And then there was Basu who made Barfi an outstanding film. I am so happy he took my son for it. My son got great recognition for the film and then he made this Gajja Jasoos..what Jagga Jasoos whatever.. which he made a total mess of. It was as messy as my pronunciation was. He probably got indulged too much. I guess both the Anurags got indulged in their films.", he said 

The actor went on to say, "You know when they are good enough to work on the certain budget and suddenly they are given huge budgets in hand so bandar ke haath mein khilona nahin aa jaata hai, he goes absolutely berserk. So I think that’s what actually happened with both these guys. They were given budgets they could not handle and I guess it happens. It happens with every director, every actor you can’t have a hundred percent record anyway…So it happens." 

Earlier, too Rishi Kapoor slammed Anurag Basu for delaying ‘Jagga Jasoos’ and not completing the film on time, “He’s such an irresponsible director that he doesn’t complete the film”.

It was not too late when Rishi Kapoor lashed out at Rahul Gandhi over his remark on 'dynasty politics' at Berkeley.
