Anurag Kashyap compares himself to vada pav seller to illustrate disagreement with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s ‘mediocre actors’ comment

A few months ago, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui had kicked up a storm by lashing out at industry bigwigs and pointing out how one can’t criticise mediocre actors these days because they have influential contacts. Recently, director Anurag Kashyap weighed in on the matter and asserted that actors shouldn’t be held responsible for this situation.

“Nawaz’s expectations are fine in their own place. But I disagree with him. We all aim to excel in our work. If an actor’s performance is mediocre, I believe they’ve given their best effort. The issue lies not with the actor but with those who contribute to their stardom and continue to cast them. This phenomenon occurs in every field,” Anurag Kashyap said during a conversation with Zoom Entertainment.

Mentioning that he would rather focus on his work than on someone else’s mediocrity and success or the perception of it, Kashyap said: “I can empathise with someone who feels they aren’t receiving their due. Nawaz has received his due and perhaps deserves more. However, even if a particular director earns 10 times the income and operates with a budget 20 times larger than mine, and I believe I’m a more superior director, (I must acknowledge that) money isn’t awarded based on my craftsmanship or storytelling abilities. It’s that the said director’s choices have made him a money-spinning machine. It’s almost like a commissioner: you generate money, you get money.”

“If my films aren’t generating money, then my earnings will reflect that. There’s no reason for me to feel envious,” he noted.

Comparing himself to a vada pav vendor, Anurag Kashyap remarked, “He earns 10 times more than I do because he sells his vada pav 50,000 times more frequently than I sell my movies. I can’t look down on him simply because he’s selling vada pav on the roadside. He’s investing and earning money.” Kashyap continued, “I agree, there are numerous mediocre and very bad actors. However, the world is paying them and watching them. So, how can their success be their fault?”

Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Anurag Kashyap are currently gearing up for the release of the crime drama film Haddi, in which the two will share the screen.
