Anurag Kashyap: I dance on sets when I get a good shot

Anurag Kashyap talks about his out of the box film-making style and says he loves actors; and that is the reason he doesn’t restrict their movements while shooting.

“I love actors. My way of telling an actor when he or she does a good shot is kiss them. I actually dance on the set when I get a good shot. I have done theatre when I was 21. I actually dabbled with acting and hated myself on screen as I realised that I hated myself, as I was so conscious even though I was a fearless actor on stage. I realised that directors restrict and that is why I developed this style that for actors to breathe I need to not lock the camera,” says Kashyap.

He recently closed his twitter account. When asked on how he is managing without it, he says he is quite happy without a twitter account. “The good thing about going off Twitter is I have discovered diving and a lot of time that I can spend on creativity. In the last three months, I have found myself a boat in the Andaman islands. I stay there myself and dive. I have gone there multiple times. I read and write there. I disappear to different parts of the world. A year back, I too felt that I could not get out as I was doing these multiple cottage industry movies, but I paid a big price for it. One of the key issues between Kalki and me was that we did not just spend enough time with each other. She felt that it is better to have you as a neighbour than living in the same house with you and that is why we have actually become neighbours now,” said Kashyap.

His next film, Bombay Velvet starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma is set for a December 2014 release.
