Anurag Kashyap blasts newcomers: says he Will Not Help More Newcomers Unless Paid

Renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, known for his boundary-pushing narratives and unapologetic viewpoints, recently stirred controversy with his bold statement regarding newcomers in the film industry. Kashyap, who has consistently championed authenticity in storytelling, took to social media to express his frustration with assisting aspiring talents.

In a candid Instagram post, Kashyap unveiled his decision to charge a fee for his time, signaling a shift in his approach towards mentoring newcomers. He emphasized that he had previously invested considerable time in helping newcomers but often found himself disappointed with the results. His new policy, outlined in a rate card, clearly delineates the cost for meetings: 1 lakh for 10-15 minutes, 2 lakhs for half an hour, and 5 lakhs for an hour, all payable in advance.

This bold move reflects Kashyap’s weariness with individuals who may not fully appreciate the value of his mentorship. It also sheds light on the economic dynamics inherent in the film industry, where established figures like Kashyap may feel undervalued for their contributions to nurturing emerging talents.

Despite his stance, Kashyap’s track record reveals a history of providing opportunities to newcomers in his films, including acclaimed works like Gangs of Wasseypur and Masaan. Notable actors such as Vicky Kaushal and Rajeev Khandelwal owe their initial breakthroughs to Kashyap’s projects. However, his recent statement suggests a potential shift towards collaborating with established actors.

Looking ahead, Kashyap is gearing up for his acting debut in the Malayalam film industry with Aashiq Abu’s upcoming project, Rifle Club. This new venture marks a significant step in Kashyap’s career, signaling his continued exploration of diverse creative avenues beyond traditional filmmaking.
