Anurag Kashyap embarrassed by ‘Chittagong’ goof up

Anurag Kashyap embarrassed by ‘Chittagong’ goof up

The poster boy of Indie cinema found himself in an awkward situation thanks to an error by Chittagong‘s producer Sunil Bohra

It is rumoured that Amitabh Bachchan had used his clout to stop the release of director Bedabrata Pain’s Chittagong, because it was based on the same lines as that of the Abhishek Bachchan-Deepika Padukone-starrer Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. While Gowariker’s film released and hardly found any takers, Bedabrata’s version of the uprising in Chittagong was seen and appreciated by many people, especially by hatke filmmakers like Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra and Vishal Bhardwaj. They were very vocal about their liking for Chittagong and thus producer Sunil Bohra (known for producing offbeat films like Bejoy Nambiar’s Shaitan and Ramgopal Varma’s Not A Love Story) came on board. An excited Sunil got the first-look poster of the film made and splashed it with all the quotes of celebs appreciating the film. Little did he realise that one of the first quotes is that of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who is also the presenter of the film. Now if Kashyap is presenting the film, obviously his take on the film would seem biased and might even turn people away from watching it. Anurag’s fans pointed out the mistake to him and he in turn tweeted to Sunil, “Presenter bhi main aur quote bhi mera.. yeh hazam nahi hua @sunilThebohra” (It’s hard to digest that you are using my quote despite the fact that I am also the presenter of the film). He then requested Sunil to take off his quote from the poster. We are now eagerly waiting to watch Chittagong and see if it is really as good as these acclaimed filmmakers want us to believe.
