After directing Nawazuddin Siddiqui in films like Raman Raghav 2.0, Gangs of Wasseypur and more, Anurag Kashyap has now acted alongside him in Haddi. In a recent interview, while talking about how it’s always ‘comfortable’ to work with Nawaz, the filmmaker also mentioned how the actor is ‘misjudged and misconstrued’.
Speaking to Humans of Bombay, Anurag Kashyap spoke about the film, and how he’s never been part of a ‘world’ that director Akshat Ajay Sharma created. He added that he’s playing a loathsome character in the film, which has Nawaz playing a transgender part.
Talking about Nawazuddin, the filmmaker said, “He’s also an extremely misjudged and misconstrued person. Also because of whatever it is… the world sees you for many things. He is a guy who doesn’t defend himself, he always stays silent. He never… he rarely stands up to something, out of love or whatever reasons it is or out of awkwardness. But when he does, it really makes a difference but most often than not, he does not. But I know him really well inside out so I have a very special place for him in my heart.” Anurag added that it’s ‘always great working with him’ and Nawaz has ‘kicked his a**’ quite a lot in Haddi.
In the recent past, Nawazuddin’s personal life and his marriage have all been talked about. He is currently in the midst of divorce from his wife Aaliyah who was recently seen in Bigg Boss OTT.
Anurag Kashyap dubs Dabangg his life’s ‘largest tragedy’
In an interview, Anurag Kashyap revealed that when he was making Gangs of Wasseypur, he had to use his brother Abhinav Kashyap’s name to get the locations since he had delivered a super hit with his debut directorial Dabangg.
Recalling the initial phase of his career when he had just started as a director after writing scripts and dialogues of various films, Anurag told Cyrus Broacha on his podcast Cyrus Says, “In the beginning, it was very difficult because people didn’t understand (my films). I got confused because at one point, I remember somebody told me, ‘What are you doing?’ when they saw Black Friday. They said, ‘It’s a little real, it’s fictional. It’s not a film, it’s hybrid.’ My parents would react like that, ‘Why can’t you make films like everybody else?’”
While he was failing to grab attention with his films despite spending an ample amount of time in the film industry, his brother Abhinav made his debut with Salman Khan’s Dabangg in 2010, which became a super hit. Anurag called the success of the cop-drama the “largest tragedy” of his life.
The filmmaker continued, “And then the greatest thing that happened in my family also became my largest tragedy. I was this filmmaker who made Paanch and Black Friday that didn’t release. Then, No Smoking, that bombed. And, my brother went and made Dabangg. And he hits a century. Super hit. And then everybody is like, ‘Kuch seekho (learn something).’”
However, after Gangs of Wasseypur hit theatres in 2012, it became a super hit, establishing Anurag Kashyap’s position in the film industry as one of its finest directors.
