Anurag Kashyap says public has validation power, Karan Johar can make someone’s career but can't break anyone

It has been over a month since the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput and fans of the actor continue to remember him through his work. Sushant’s untimely demise rekindled the debate of nepotism in Bollywood. Several enraged fans called out big producers like Karan Johar and Yash Raj Films for favouring star kids in the nepotism debate. Now, sharing his take on the insider-outsider debate, director Anurag Kashyap also spoke in an interview and claimed that it is the audience that holds the ultimate power. 

In an interview with NDTV, Anurag said that audience has the validation power and that they can make someone a star or not. Commenting on nepotism in India, the filmmaker-producer said that people run after Taimur Ali Khan for photos since many want to see his photos. He questioned this and said that since childhood people are hyping a kid up. Further, when asked if YRF or Karan Johar have the power to make or break someone’s career, Anurag said that the times have changed now.

Anurag said, “YRF (Yash Raj Films) today is very different from YRF 10 years ago.” Further, talking about Karan Johar, Anurag said that he can surely give a chance to someone and make their career by launching them. But, Anurag also added that he cannot break someone. Anurag said, “A Karan Johar can make somebody's career... by launching in a big film. Because he's not just a filmmaker, he's also a businessman. He understands. But he cannot break anyone.” Anurag also questioned the aspirants lining up outside big houses like YRF and Karan Johar’s Dharma and said that why don’t they line up outside Hansal Mehta’s house.

A Karan Johar can make somebody's career... by launching in a big film. Because he's not just a filmmaker, he's also a businessman. He understands. But he cannot break anyone.

In the same interview, Anurag also claimed that the whole debate on nepotism is 10 year too late. He said that back in the days social media was not present and hence the debate is too late. He claimed, “Outsiders today get more opportunities today than they got 10 years back.” Meanwhile, Sushant’s death had sparked off the ‘Insider-Outsider’ debate. Even Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut claimed that Sushant’s films like Chhichhore did not get recognition from award shows and Gully Boy bagged all the awards.

Anonymous : Anurag, please have some dignity and stop your ridiculous comments. Mr johar may or may not break careers. That’s not the issue - it is very clear that he is caustic with his words and actions and embarrassed people in the public domain. He does it for ratings and cheap thrills at the expense of others. Does he ever wonder the affect that has on people he is using for his own amusement and trying to involved others in his cheap thrills and for ratings. Anything for money.

Anonymous : i heard Kjo said Sushanth was flop hero and how can he release his film Drive. I wish someone would post that clip if true. Because Kedarnath, Dhoni were not flops. He didnt invite him to Koffee with Karan but Alia said Sushant Singh Rajput said “sushant Singh Rajput, who?” at least that is on tv for all to see so they cant deny that. Maybe Alia and KJo has something against a hardworking actor who made it big in tv first, then made it in films in his own merit, not by being daughter of a director producer, and having first movie by Dharma Productions. And she has the guts to say Sushant Singh Rajput, who? and her creepy godfather uncle Johar smirks.

Anonymous : Just watch Saif Ali Khans reaction when Kanga belted out the nepotism thing. Everyone has flaws and i am quite certain that Kangna has more than anyone. What i like at least she expressed her views on the nepotism right in Karan Johars face. Anurag kashyap has by and large always criticised people be it Mr Bachchan..and off late have become puppet of KJo and others...

And remember fame,money, and success do jot last forever and they do not bring you eternal joy.There would be a day that you'd have to leave all these behind.At least westerners are more understanding of all these .Listen to pewdipie's segment on Sushant ....You people are really pathetic ...You are not even 1/100000th of what Sushant was .Got it ?

Anonymous : Why not. He tells others to not cast outsiders and promotes his favorites.....he propogates malicious gossips about new comers so as to give a bad reputation and that in turn ruins their marketability and desirability.Audiences also start believing the rumours .....How many times has Karan tranny bickered about Sushant and Kangana on his substandard show and on other public platforms...Aditya Chopra,Karan Johar,Mahesh Bhatt,Vidhu Vinod chopra,Salman Khaj all these old, psycho men work in collusion to derail the careers of young outsiders.... There should be proper, strict laws formulated for entertainment industry and penalties should be applied to those who violate them. Specially regarding the circulation of malicious gossip, bullying,payment schemes ,working hours,unfair contracts etc.

Anonymous : Yes KJO and YRF and powerful production studios can absolutely sabotage careers. If you cut funding and produce a mediocre product, not invest in marketing the product and block other powerful insiders from associating with newcomers, then these are some ways in which they can sabotage careers. I can think of more but I'll spare you a lengthy post.
