Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has always been known for his opinion on several issues and many times, he uses his Twitter handle to share his take on things. In a recent interview, the Mamarziyaan director spoke about his political take and claimed that he doesn't side with anyone and also mentioned that he feels safe in Maharashtra as he can speak without fear. Further, he said that Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray has changed his perception of the party Shiv Sena. 

Talking about it, Anurag said that due to several things, his perception about Shiv Sena has undergone a change and that Uddhav Thackeray is the reason. Further, Kashyap added that he feels safe in the city and can say what he wants to without fear. He said he may not agree with the Chief Minister of things but still he feels safer as he can speak without fear. Criticising the government, he claimed that they are trying to distract people from the real issues and focus just on Bollywood. He further said he is not pro Congress. He said he is anti the way the government is functioning. 

Talking about Maharashtra, Anurag said,“I am very happy in Maharashtra, because whatever my perception of Shiv Sena in the past, for me an Uddhav Thackeray is much better than that. He has changed the perception. I feel much safer here. Even though I disagree with him. I totally demolishment, I totally do not condone Sanjay Raut calling Kangana ‘haramkhor.’ I do not condone that. I totally disagree with that. But I still feel safer. I can say this out without fear. I said this.”

I have fallen in love with Kangana Ranaut. She has the guts to take on the lame CM Uddhav Thackeray and his dimwitted ministers.

Modi is not good at building, he's good at destroying. So if he thinks he can destroy Bollywood and build another industry elsewhere, dream on.

Totally agree. Uddhav removed anti social elements like Raj and Narayan Rane and made shiv sena more liberal and acceptable to the middle class. I'd rather have him govern Maharashtra than a BJP stooge or any of the above 2 anti social elements mentioned.

Movie mafia are a disgrace to our country. Karan aunty looks nowhere these days. Gangubai and her buddha Bhatt has also disappeared in oblivion. Her step mom Rhea is in jail for drugs. Poor Sushant he trusted the wrong people.

Hey Mr/Miss #IAmMumbaikar #ILoveMumbai #AamchiMumbai let me tell you I am also Marathi and born and brought up in Mumbai but I dont carry the mentality of the Frog from the Pond. You need to come out of that Pond called Shiv Sena where they trapped Marathi people for decades. Learn to think as a Indian.

Hey, Mr/Miss Marathi, let me tell you I am a girl from Delhi and born and brought up in Delhi, but I also don't carry the mentality of the Frog from the Pond. I feel trapped in Delhi. Men keep staring at you like you are some kind of an alien from Mars. Whereas in Bombay, I feel much safer, to quite an extent. Bombay is one of the safest cities worldwide when it comes to a girl living independently. As a girl living independently here, even when I go for late-night strolls all alone or walk through lanes, I somehow feel safe. I must say that this city has surprised me in more ways than I could have imagined.

The gumption this guy has to say what he saying.. Yes, Mumbai is for all and your anti national views are not hidden. You may have forgotten that you had asked the PM for protection in reference to your daughters safety...Now its a different tune, because one low life is supporting another low life (CM)

The movie mafia team is a laughing stock , because Kangana took on Maha Govt now Maha Govt is the best! Tomorrow if kangana says something bad against modi, the same gang will praise modi work will applaud him and treat him as best PM. Same with Karan, earlier he was against their idea of groupism, now he and his girls punnu Swara adore Karan, so desperate to get brownie points, they have no spine to fight , they are very weak so they play slaves to Mafias.

Anurag, You may feel as you like because you people are Hand in Glove. When you are in Dirt and Filth seems everything is okay for you as your system is going to be ripped apart and time will surly prove you and your like minded people who conscience in dead Be ready to face the music, you covered your movies and your creativity doesn't attract the command people of India

As long as he’s safe it’s good.. nice logic. He means he can spew venom on PM, but is scared of uttering any word against his CM coz of obvious reasons.

You feel safer because you are in criminals teams,only those who oppose criminals are not safe.You do not have a close one assasinated,raped ,beaten and hanged thats why you do not bother about others, you're so evil that all you do is defending criminals day and night , maybe you're safe today but for how long will you be? Not sure Karma will allow you to be free and safe like this.
