Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap Expresses His Thoughts on Violence Staged in Hollywood

"My idea of creating violence is to put the viewer off it, where it disturbs them," Anurag added

Known as a master of making violence-based movies in Hindi cinema, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap expressed his thoughts on violence staged in Hollywood, saying American movies dont really explore violence.

According to Anurag Kashyap, Hollywood movies focus more on commercialisation.

“America is always middle of the ground, they always borrow from everywhere and make it more palatable and commercial but they don’t really explore violence barring some of the exploitation movies. They know how to commercialize everything, they are the Mcdonalds version of action and violence,” he said in a conversation for Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films Perfect Strokes with Anupama Chopra.

Be it movie “Gangs of Wasseypur” or web show “Sacred Games”, Anurag Kashyap never leave a chance to show violence, killings and other brutal scenes in his projects.

Sharing his idea of violence, the 46-year-old director revealed that he does not like to see usage of violence in superhero movies as he believes mainstream films and superhero movies celebrate violence rather than showing its depth.

“I like the whole idea of taking people through that whole motion of what’s the worst fear that they might have. I get borthered by seeing celebratory violence that I see in mainstream movies or the superhero movie where the violence makes you feel like wanting to be a hero and getting into a fight.

“My idea of creating violence is to put the viewer off it, where it disturbs them,” Anurag added.
