Pahlaj Nihalani even accused Anurag Kashyap of taking money from AAP to fund the movie.


As the row got political, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal took the opportunity and tweeted the following.


However, Anurag says that its a lie. “No I am not a member of AAP or Congress not do I associate with any other political party. I have made more films without a fees than anyone else and I don’t take money that is not earned from anyone,” said Anurag.

Anurag was also miffed with Arvind Kejriwal’s tweets. “Please don’t colour my fight with any political affiliation because there is none. I request Congress, AAP and other political parties to stay out of my battle. It’s my Rights vs the Censorship. I speak only on my behalf. It’s my fight Vs a dictatorial man sitting there operating like an oligarch in his constituency of censor board, that’s my North Korea. Rest of you go pick your own fights. I will fight mine,” said Kashyap who has made films like Black Friday, Dev D and Gangs Of Wasseypur.

Bollywood Backs Kashyap

Meanwhile, top Bollywood filmmakers & actors have backed Anurag Kashyap’s “Udta Punjab” and have even demanded the removal of Pahlaj Nihalani.

  • Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit said Mr Nihalani’s allegation that the film is funded by the Aam Aadmi Party was an “insult to the entire film industry,” and demanded an apology.
