YRF aka Yash Raj Films has recently faced a string of failures with films like ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’, ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, and the recent Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Shamshera’. Acclaimed Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap has two cents about the whole YRF fiasco.

Just before the release of his next film ‘Do Baara’, Anurag Kashyap talked to Galatta Plus where he talked about the recent Bollywood blockbuster failures. He said “The industry is such that people will continue walking in from all walks of life. Here, cinema is largely controlled by those people, and that to the second generation, that has grown up in trial rooms. They have not lived life”.

“So, they’re referencing is based on cinema. What is not on screen can’t be cinema to them. The biggest problem with YRF is the trial room effect. You take a story and you want to make a Pirates of the Caribbean out of it and it becomes Thugs of Hindostan. You take a story, and you want to make a Mad Max: Fury Road out of it, and it becomes Shamshera. The moment you head in that direction, you’re cheating yourself, especially in today’s time. A Shamshera would’ve really worked two-three years back.

Talking about the YRF back-to-back failures, Anurag said “You have one person sitting in a cave, who doesn’t know the world outside, dictating how everybody should be making their films and telling them what to do” referencing Aditya Chopra. 

He continued “Obviously, you’re digging your own grave. You have to empower people, you can’t dictate terms. That time is passe now. If Aditya Chopra has hired a bunch of people, he needs to empower them and not dictate them, not control the casting, not control everything. Sit in your office, hire good people if you trust them, and let them make their film. Which is the mistake he makes. He doesn’t let them (be)”.

Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Do Baara’ will be released in theatre on 19th August 2022. Stay tuned with Mayapuri for the latest Bollywood news.
