The video was part of a short film by Kashyap, which was leaked online and was doing the rounds on WhatsApp. The actor told in an interview, “I don’t have time for this. You know the whole world has lots of people, who have no jobs. They sit at home and do whatever they want to do. So you can’t waste your time on going and making a complaint or even looking at it.”
The star who has five Hindi films, one Malayalam film, one Tamil film, and a Bengali short film ready for release, added, “I saw it and laughed it off because it is really funny… I am really busy. I can’t waste my time doing that. My family and I never get affected by any of these things. So it just doesn’t bother me.”
An angry Anurag Kashyap had earlier told a newspaper about the leak, “There is a short film of 20 minutes that I had been commissioned to direct .
This film was with subtitles and meant for release only in the international market. My story was inspired by a true story and is a very powerful film. It was very difficult to make this short film due to this little sequence in the film of a few seconds that involves the actress to lift her dress and expose her lower front part and needed that very minor partial nudity front shot. It took us so much time to do it in a non-sexual way.
After taking all the care, the film was delivered to New York a month back. And then, all of a sudden after a month from nowhere, this video popped up online.”
