Director Anurag Kashyap: Actor Salman Khan, Actor Shah Rukh Khan Are The Superheroes
The movie Bhavesh Joshi is featuring Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
Asking about the younger generation of actors who are not getting acceptance in the superhero genre, and if that is one of the reasons why filmmakers are not making such movies.
Anurag says I don’t think a filmmaker thinks like that. If a filmmaker is obsessing with an idea, that is what drives him to make the film.
He does not think about rejection or anything. Our actors are superheroes without the mask.
What will happen if you make a superhero a superhero? Like Ironman cannot be a Spiderman, the 45-year-old director cum producer says.
Actor Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, are superheroes. Mask does not make anyone is a super actor.
It is a different movie and has a different take on Vikramaditya Motwane, he adds.
Asking about Indian filmmakers making movies on the lines of Hollywood films such as Avengers Infinity War, Anurag says the budget is still an issue.
Even if we combining the budget of all the films we make, that would be less than the budget of Avengers.
The English language lends itself to a broader audience like how Hindi reaches a more general audience in India.
The team of the film Bhavesh Joshi says their movie would see Harshvardhan as a student-turning-vigilante. The actor says Bhavesh Joshi is not a regular superhero film.
It is not a quintessential superhero film like Krrish. The idea is there which is a hero within all of us. It is on action speaking louder than words.
It is about something is not right what are you going to do about it? It is a superpower; it is a real film, the 27-year-old actor adding.
Motwane believes that vigilante culture is in existence in the Hindi cinema since the 1970s and it is reflecting in some of the films of Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Dharmendra, and others.
It is a throwback to the year of the 70s. The superhero genre came to America from the 30s when corruption and crime are very much.
The justice system is not working out, and you want the vigilante justice.
There was a time when need a hero. The person can be a with or without a face.
Actors in vigilante justice like the movie Singham is a vigilante, and actor Salman Khan has playing vigilante in the so many films, he says.
The movie is set to release on May 25.
So, these are the points to describe on the Director Anurag Kashyap actor Salman Khan; actor Shah Rukh Khan is the superheroes.
