Anurag Kashyap: I have found a great friend in Taapsee Pannu


While shooting the film we got into so many fights. “Sometimes when I’m feeling down, I’ll call her no matter which part of the world she’s shooting in and ask if anyone’s at home as I just want to sit at her place and cut off from the world and she says yes please go ahead. Advertising

Today, the actor headlines his projects and the filmmaker says he has found a great friend in her. We are extremely comfortable.”
The Sacred Games director says both of them relate to each other’s journey and struggles. Advertising

“I’ve found a great friend in her and I don’t say that about a lot of people.”
Anurag says unlike his long time friend and collaborator Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has “grown” with him, he did not know Taapsee from Adams. It isn’t that I didn’t have friends before Taapsee, but yes, we both have hit it off really well.”

The filmmaker has come on board to present the Hindi version of Taapsee’s next, Game Over, a Tamil/Telugu bilingual drama directed by Ashwin Saravanan. Everyone has their set of friends here. I thought it’s a great idea but how will someone pull it off. I had no clue,” Anurag says in an interview with PTI. This film is driven by the inexplicable, which you only understand in the middle of it. What she says is what she means. “We just met twice before we started shooting Manmarziyaan. I don’t have to think twice making fun of her. “She went to my college for a month. Anurag and Taapsee have worked in just one film, Manmarziyaan, but the duo have found much more than a creative collaboration. “This is something else. 0

“We identify with each other as being from the outside world who have their own minds, we agree to disagree and we have faced similar struggles.”
Anurag says in Taapsee, he has found a person he can count on. The film chronicled the story of a woman alone at home, who finds a stranger pleading to enter her house on a stormy evening amid reports of a serial killer at large. We have these fights and battles but in her, I’ve found a friend who I can count on.”
When asked if that’s a rarity in the industry, Anurag says, “It isn’t rare. I can’t classify it. Then I saw the film and it impacted me. She thinks she can make me feel much lighter, change my perception of being a dark filmmaker and I also indulge her. ‘Kaun’ was still character driven. I just am and she just is. I picked up the choreographer from that song sequence to do choreography in Dev D and she told me the girl in the corner dancing on stage was her. The thriller chronicles the story of a wheelchair-bound woman dealing with a mysterious identity trying to invade her home. It plays out with utmost satisfaction.”
