After the success of “Sacred Games”, its makers Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane engaged with fans through a Facebook Live on Reliance Entertainment’s page on Wednesday.

Anurag talked about the liberty of the digital medium and the success of their maiden venture, read a statement.

“Most of the doors have been closed to us, so (we) have started pioneering ourselves, be it YouTube or a studio. For the first time, we are seeing the success of us and talking about it,” said Anurag, who has often locked horns with the Central Board of Film Certification.

While talking about the overwhelming response to “Sacred Games”, Motwane said: “I am shocked and happily surprised how broad the show has gone. In the beginning, you feel like Netflix is watched by just a group of people, film lovers and show lovers and such people. On IMDb, in one month it got more votes than ‘Sanju’ and ‘Dev. D’, ‘Udaan’, ‘…Wasseypur’ and others.”

“The fact that you can watch the show anywhere at any time legally is new. The freedom that people have started discovering is what’s also driving the viewership well.”

“Sacred Games”, which is an adaptation based on Vikram Chandra’s 2006 thriller novel of the same name, is also the first Netflix Original from India.

Talking about the adaptation, Motwane said: “We’ve been true to the book though we’ve changed a couple of things just a bit. We did all the changes with permission from the author of the book. I think the spirit of the show is exactly the same.”

Anurag said Chandra was always with them. “Actually, Vikram Chandra was very enthusiastic and gave us all the changes,” he 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.
