There is fear in the atmosphere: Anurag Kashyap, Aanand L Rai on Padmavati
Addressing the controversy surrounding “Padmavati”, filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Aanand L Rai today said that many in the fraternity are scared to come out in the open to support director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Bhansali has been at the receiving end of fringe Rajput groups and politicians, who have accused him of distorting historical facts, a claim repeatedly denied by the director. The makers had to defer the December 1 release and are still awaiting the clearance from the censor board. In an interview with PTI, both Kashyap and Rai opened up about the “atmosphere of fear” and why they would not judge people for not backing Bhansali openly. Kashyap said he would not reveal whether he had spoken to Bhansali or not as he did not want to put the filmmaker “in the dock”.
