Hollywood doesn't really explore violence: Anurag Kashyap
Mumbai: 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 don't really explore violence. According to Anurag, 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.
Be it movie Gangs of Wasseypur or web show 'Sacred Games', Anurag 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.
"My idea of creating violence is to put the viewer off it, where it disturbs them."
