Mumbai: Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap, noted for his film Gangs of Wasseypur, has said that his upcoming film Ugly is not similar with Wasseypur.
Kashyap is planning to change some portions of the film Ugly for the Indian audience, unlike the one that was played at Cannes Film Festival.
Kashyap claimed that Ugly got a good response in Cannes, but a few reviews were bad because the writers were expecting another Wasseypur.
The director said, there were people in the industry who were suspicious about five of his films having made it to the selection for Cannes. "Some people are bitter about the fact that five of our films were shortlisted. I am not party of any camp, association or union. I have fought my battles alone and faced my troubles alone. They (critics) can form any opinion they like."
Kashyap rejected charges that his filmmaking has undergone a sea change.
"I have always done co-productions with major studios. Black Friday was with Adlabs, No Smoking with Eros, Dev D,Aamir and Udaan was with UTV.I
"I think the media made me the face of independent cinema and now has a problem with that face.Within the constraints that I have to operate in,I have done more for independent cinema in this country than any other filmmaker. If anybody else has, it has always been for some selfish intention", said Kashyap.
