Anurag Kashyap

Anurag Kashyap is not one for mincing his words. Recently, at the Jagran Film Festival, the filmmaker has spoken about those in the industry, using Shah Rukh Khan as an example of success.

���When Shah Rukh Khan came from Delhi from theatre, he became a star. Many who came after him couldn�۪t. He used to do small roles in theatres but people who used to do big roles couldn�۪t be stars. Star is a different thing, acting is a different thing,�۝ said Kashyap, as quoted by��Indian Express.

He also spoke about the difference between a star-kid entering the industry as opposed to a newcomer with no previous film connections, ���I�۪ve often seen that the children who grow up in the film industry, they are more stable. The actor, who comes from outside, does one film and goes mad. This is a fact, I am saying from my experience of 23 years�۝.

Kashyap is thought to have cast Kangna Ranaut in a forthcoming venture but this is yet to be confirmed.
