Anurag Kashyap is one angry man today. The reason? Well, he has made a short film (supposed to be for an international market) featuring the bold actor Radhika Apte in which she has exposed her privates. What has angered the director is that, the ‘main portion’ of the 20 minute long video was leaked on WhatsApp and other social media by some miscreants.
Speaking about the same to a leading daily newspaper, Anurag Kashyap said that, he was a part of a team of six directors who had been commissioned to direct short films, all of which to eventually form a part of one big film that is yet to be released. He said that, his film, which was inspired by a real life story, was with subtitles and was meant for release in the international market only. Despite all the difficulties and the safety measures (to prevent any kind of footage leakage), the most sensitive part of the video made its way to WhatsApp and other social media. He assumes that, this could be the handiwork of some Indian guy at the New York based studio (where he had sent the film).
Anurag Kashyap added that, he had shown the film to many of his friends including Vikramaditya Motwane’s mother, who cried as she felt it was so powerful. In the same breath, he added that, with the video going viral, while Radhika Apte felt victimized, he felt responsible (for the same). Wasting no time, he immediately called up the Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria, who in turn, called ACP Prasanna (Crime Branch) who has now put the cybercrime branch to work on it on top priority. They have also written to Facebook and WhatsApp in order to prevent such a thing from spreading its wings again.
